Inside the Delivery Room
According to Page Six, Ronnie skipped out on the London premiere of MTV’s highly anticipated reunion series, Jersey Shore Family Vacation, to be with the mother of his child. The publication reports the famous fist-pumper had initially landed in England, but immediately got on a plane to fly back across the Atlantic Ocean after learning Jen’s water had broke.
Ronnie’s baby mama also gave an update from the hospital on her Instagram Story Monday night. “Just so in case you guys didn’t know, I’m in f**king labor,” she said trying to remain calm and collected. “They are about to start the epidural.”
“It’s two o’clock and Ron lands at seven, so we have five hours,” she shared from her hospital bed. “I’m feeling very very uncomfortable. I’m feeling very uncomfortable about pushing a baby out of my vagina right now.”
Fortunately, everything went well during the delivery!
