The reality TV star revealed in an interview with Us Weekly on Christmas eve that his girlfriend, Jen Harley, is six months pregnant.

The couple, who started going out earlier this year, are said to be expecting a little girl in the new year.

While the 32-year-old joked that "every guy wants a boy", he reckons that because he was raised with sisters he's "used to being around girls".

And it sounds like Ronnie, who will be rejoining the MTV show for the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation series in 2018, is looking to his costars for parenting advice.

Three of the Jersey Shore stars - Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, Paul 'Pauly D' Delvecchio and Jenni 'JWoww' Farley - have become parents since the show wrapped in 2012.

Ronnie adds:

“They all went through different experiences, which is great."

The couple began dating this year after Ronnie split from Malika Haqq, his costar on Famously Single, in February.

Their happy news comes shortly after MTV confirmed that Jersey Shore would be coming back for a reunion series in 2018, called Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. 

The series will see Snooki, Pauly D, JWoww, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino join Ronnie for the spinoff.

Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola is the only cast member who declined to return.
