Pauly D has yet to meet his baby daughter, but says she’s gorgeous.
The reality TV star and DJ bragged that she’d got her good looks from him, and hopes to meet her as soon as possible.
His daughter Amabella, born on May 15, was the result of a one-time fling with former Hooters waitress Amanda Markert.
“At the end of the day I just want the best life for my baby. She’s gorgeous, she looks just like me and we’ll have to take it from there and see what happens.
“My number one focus is the baby. I just want to give that baby the best life I possibly can and we’ll just have to go from there,” he told TMZ.
The news broke last week that 33-year-old Pauly had a love child, and rumors surrounding the baby have since circulated.
TMZ reported that Amanda had been trying to sell text messages alleging that Pauly wanted her to have an abortion. Sources also told the website that she took the money but decided against the medical procedure.
Despite the speculation Pauly, real name Paul DelVecchio, couldn’t contain his excitement at the prospect of meeting five-month old Amabella and even said a play date with his Jersey Shore co-star Nicole Snooki Polizzi’s young son Lorenzo was definitely on the cards.
“I haven’t met her, but I’m really looking forward to it. I haven’t been this excited in my life actually and hopefully I’ll see her this week. I’m absolutely going to have a play date with Snooki, she’s excited and I’m sure Lorenzo will treat my baby good.
“I’ve got a lot of little cousins, I’ve got a niece and a nephew so I’ve dabbled in it a little bit [diaper changes], but I’m not the best at it let’s say that,” he laughed.
