The Jersey Shore cast is back together again—this time to celebrate Deena Cortese's pregnancy! Over the weekend, the reality star was joined by four of her cast mates at her baby shower to celebrate her soon-to-be-born baby boy. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, and Angelina Pivarnick were all in attendance for the couple's big day and shared plenty of shots from the party to social media.
The mom-to-be and her husband, Christopher Buckner, are reportedly planning to name their child after his father. Snooki took to Instagram to share the baby's nickname, "CJ."
"DEENER’S baby shower for CJ! Can’t wait to meet another addition to our family. Love these ladies so much!!!!!! #Family #MySisters ❤️❤️," Snooki wrote on Instagram, captioning a shot of all five ladies. Sammi also shared a shot of the crew, simply writing, "Deena’s Baby Shower ☺️ #Fam."
The future parents tied the knot in October 2017, six years after they first met. On their fifth anniversary, Buckner popped the question while the two were on vacation. Nearly all of the Jersey Shore cast was in attendance for the couple's nuptials, including Snooki, the Situation, DJ Pauly DelVecchio, and Vinny Guadagnino.
Cortese shared the baby news in early July, when she announced via Instagram that she was expecting her first child with Buckner. "Chris and I decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans! 💙Now that we are safely into our second trimester.. us and our little monkey are ready to tell the world Our little family is growing !" Cortese wrote at the time. "We have a sweet little boy on the way! We are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness💙 December can’t come soon enough! Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John❤️ you are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!"
