Jersey Shore's Pauly D has confirmed that he is now a first-time father to a baby girl!

The 33-year-old (real name Paul DelVecchio) revealed his happy news to TMZ, describing himself as a "proud father" and also admitting that he cannot wait to get stuck into this new chapter of his life.

His daughter is now a few months old and lives with her mother, who he has not named.

Pauly met the 25-year-old mother of his child in Las Vegas after travelling there for a DJ gig.

The pair hooked up during his Sin City trip and, following a paternity test, Pauly was delighted to learn that he was the baby's father.

Pauly D isn't the only Jersey Shore star who has become a parent recently.

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi also has a child, 14-month-old Lorenzo, with Jionni LaValle.

Snooki and fiancé Jionni LaValle welcomed their son into the world last August, and they are excited that little Lorenzo now has a fellow Jersey playmate.

In a statement to Us Weekly, Snooki said: "Now Lorenzo has a girlfriend!" She added that Pauly will make a great dad.
