Mike Sorrentino‘s parenting “situation” is getting bigger!
The TV star, fondly called “The Situation,” announced that he and his wife, Lauren, are expecting their second child. The pair welcomed their first child, Romeo Reign, a little over a year ago.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino & His Family Are Excited About This New Phase
“The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” star was joined by his wife and their son for the announcement picture he shared on Instagram on Sunday.
The trio posed in front of a pool as The MTV star stood next to Lauren, who wore a multicolored dress and brown Chanel sandals.
Mike opted for a blue-collared polo shirt, denim shorts, and white sneakers, and little Romeo looked adorable in a blue shirt that seemed to spell “big bro” in white letters. In the caption, The Situation wrote:
“We have an amazing announcement!! We’re a growing family! Baby on the way [pregnant woman emoji]. January 2023 [white heart emoji]. God is Good [praying hands emoji].”
After giving the post almost 200k likes, fans and followers trooped into the comment section to drop their congratulatory messages.
While one person dropped numerous heart emojis, another wrote, “Congratulations! D*mn, Lauren is wearing that dress! UNREAL! [fire emoji].”
A third fan excitedly claimed, “Omfg I’m so happy for you!!!!! mosey handed your new baby down to you [two heart emojis]. Congrats on this beautiful moment.” Meanwhile, one fan focused on offering his DJ services for the baby shower.
The expectant couple previously got this level of response when they shared the new pictures of Romeo in September 2021.
According to The Blast, The Situation uploaded several images of the then-newborn with the caption, “Baby Sitch wants all the smoke today.” In one snap, baby Romeo has no worries as he chills inside his crib in a grey and white sweatsuit.

His baby fohawk was all out to play and instantly grabbed the attention of Instagram users, with one person gushing, “I don’t even believe how beautiful this baby is….”
Mike and Lauren welcomed Romeo in May 2021 and have continued to take “Jersey Shore” fans on a journey of the baby boy’s life via pictures and videos.
The Sorrentinos Dog Died After Many Years With The Family
In July, The Blast reported that the Sorrentino clan experienced some devastating emotions following losing their longtime companion and dog Moses.
Mike announced the news of the dog’s passing with a photo series to show his family’s connection to the late pet.
The first image showed the “Celebrity Big Brother” star squatting next to Lauren as they posed next to the dog in their living room.
A scroll through the other pictures revealed the intense affection that the Sorrentinos felt for the golden retriever as the photo dump included an old snap of Mike holding him when he was still a puppy.
Other images included Moses, affectionately named Mosey, at a younger age posing beside Romeo, who is a toy car. The dog also joined Mike and Lauren when the couple announced their son’s arrival in May 2021.

The last slide featured the whole family at Romeo’s first birthday bash — the lovebirds posed with the celebrant in front of blue and green balloon decorations while the late dog laid down by their feet.
The Staten Island native’s pain could be felt through the post’s caption:
“It’s with a heavy heart that we share that Moses, our beloved family dog, has just passed. We cherish the time we had and believe that, in fact, all dogs do go to Heaven.”
The father-of-one ended his statement by appreciating his fans for their prayers and support during this challenging period.
In response to Moses’ death, Mike’s fans, followers, and friends flooded the post with over 470k likes plus thousands of sympathetic messages.
Fellow “Jersey Shore” cast members, including Vinny Guadagnino, Jenni Farley, DJ Pauly D, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, dropped condolence messages.
The Sorrentinos previously disclosed that the golden retriever suffered from hemangiosarcoma, a deadly canine cancer.
Moses became a member of the Sorrentino family in 2012 and has attained celebrity status like his owners following his appearances on their reality shows.
