Jwoww and Roger announced the pregnancy on Christmas Day.

It wasn't the easiest of pregnancies as Jwoww revealed doctors initially suspected her unborn daughter to have a small cyst on her brain.

According to JWoww, the specialist said the issue – called a choroid plexus cyst - was something that happened in every one to two per cent of pregnancies, and would likely disappear by itself, which thankfully it did.

Jwoww and Roger became engaged in September 2012 after Roger proposed while they were skydiving.
