Since Jersey Shore premiered in 2009, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been focused on G.T.L. (Gym, Tan, Laundry), but his priorities might be shifting now that he has a Little Situation on the way.
The reality star, who has also been known as Big Daddy Sitch, married Lauren Sorrentino (née Pesce) in November of 2018, just a few weeks before he began serving time for tax evasion.
The couple documented their struggles to expand their family on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, and Lauren bravely discussed losing a pregnancy shortly after Mike was released from prison.
Lauren and Mike found out they were expecting at the end of the Feb. 11 episode of the show, and the emotional moment stole the hearts of many fans. When is Lauren's due date?
Mike and Lauren revealed that they were expecting in November of 2020.
Fans who exclusively watch Jersey Shore: Family Vacation for the latest news on the cast (and who don't keep up with the cast on social media) only learned that Lauren was pregnant in the final moments of the Feb. 11 episode.
While the two were in their room at the Las Vegas resort where the cast has been staying during Season 4, Lauren decided to take a pregnancy test.
As Mike waited for the results, he discussed his often-difficult journey with Lauren since their wedding.
"It's definitely been a tough journey. I was in prison for almost a year. I got out, showed everyone that the comeback was greater than the setback... all in the same breath, me and my wife took a setback," Mike said in reference to the previous pregnancy loss. "We had to regroup, pivot, just ourselves off, and move forward."
When Lauren came out of the bathroom, she had a positive pregnancy test in her hand.
After the pair embraced, Lauren reflected on her emotions in an interview confessional.
"We've just waited and prayed so long for this.... we both just can't believe it," she shared.
Those who do keep up with the reality star cast on social media will know that the couple actually revealed the exciting news on their respective Instagram pages back in November of 2020.
"Our biggest blessing is on its way," Lauren wrote on her Instagram post.
Mike confirmed the news with one of his signature nickname puns.
"We have a Baby Situation," he captioned his post.
When is Lauren Sorrentino's due date?
The latest Jersey Shore offspring is set to arrive in May of 2021. Both Lauren and Mike confirmed the due date in their original posts, as the two wrote it in flour while baking Christmas cookies.
Coincidentally, that is the same month that co-star Deena Cortese Buckner is due with her second child.
Both Deena and Lauren are expecting baby boys as well. Deena revealed that she will name her son Cameron, while Lauren and Mike are keeping their moniker to themselves for the time being.
If the boys become friends, perhaps they'll rent a shore house together for another Jersey Shore reboot.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs on Thursdays (Jerzdays) at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
