The cast of Jersey Shore Family Vacation has a new member joining the crew this season and he’s only a few months old.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren Sorrentino welcomed their first child together this past spring.
Romeo Reign Sorrentino, otherwise known as “Baby Situation” will make his debut when Season 5 premieres this week.
Mike and Lauren have dreamed of becoming parents for a while and they announced their pregnancy to the cast during one of their recent family trips together.
Lauren’s pregnancy came following a miscarriage she experienced shortly after Mike returned home from prison.
Now, in a sneak peek of Season 5, fans will get to see firsthand, the moment Mike became a dad.

The footage showed Lauren and Mike as they headed to the hospital to welcome Romeo into the world.
On the way there, Lauren tried to remain calm as the two of them soaked in every moment of what was about to happen.
Mike was seen in a confessional interview admitting that he’d always wanted to have a family and to be a father and that it was “the ultimate prize.”
Lauren shared that she was looking forward to seeing Mike become a father and noted that he was a “loving, caring, supportive, amazing man” and she had no doubt that he would be an amazing dad too.
After 14 hours of labor, Mike proudly introduced baby Romeo to the cameras as he was swaddled up in a blanket resting peacefully.
Mike looked down at his son in awe as he officially became “big daddy Sitch.”
