Do Mike and Lauren Sorrentino want more kids?

Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren announced they were expecting in November 2020, with the reality star dubbing his then-future progeny "baby Situation." The couple welcomed their first child, son Romeo Reign Sorrentino, on May 26, 2021.

By 2023, the pair welcomed yet another baby into the world. This time, they brought a daughter into the world on Jan. 24, 2023. Mike and Lauren named their baby Mia Bella Elizabeth Sorrentino.

It had been a struggle for Mike and Lauren to conceive. After getting pregnant for the first time in 2019, the couple revealed, via InTouch, that they suffered a miscarriage at around seven weeks.

Ahead of welcoming their darling daughter, we learned just how planned and wanted she truly was by her parents.

"There's definitely plans for baby No. 2," Mike told Distractify in an interview with some of his fellow Jersey Shore Family Vacation co-stars. "You know, hopefully, more sooner than later. We'll find out. But we're definitely working on it. And obviously, working on is definitely the fun part."

As for a third child, well, we'll have to wait and see.

The rest of the 'Jersey Shore' cast enjoys having their kids on the show.

Most Jersey Shore fans grew up with the show, in a way. Many started out as 20-somethings, much like the cast. And as the cast has grown up and started expanding their families, so have fans.

So, it's easy to welcome new Jersey Shore babies on the show as they're born. Deena Cortese, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, and Jenni "JWoww" Farley also have children who have filmed with them more in recent seasons.

Deena told Distractify that she feels it's "such an amazing thing" to be able to film with her children while remaining part of the core cast of the long-running MTV show.

"I feel like it's very, very rare [that] you find a reality show that keeps the same cast members for 15 years, and the show grows with the people. And we were lucky enough to have that happen to us," Deena shared. "And now we can include our families in the show as well. And everybody just loves to watch us grow as people as we get older."

Watch Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
