The tabloids have been going mad since news broke earlier this week that Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D had been keeping the secret that he fathered a baby girl named Amabella. The mother, Amanda Markert, is a former Vegas cocktail waitress that Pauly hooked up with once– and ended up knocking up.
Since the story leaked, the press has been having a field day, releasing photos of the baby and Amanda. Before the story broke, Amanda had been living in New Jersey and had kept the baby’s famous father a secret. Pauly apparently wanted Amanda to have an abortion– and even wrote her a check to pay for the procedure– but she refused to do it. She did use Pauly’s check, however, for prenatal care, but claims that he has not sent any more money since the baby’s birth in May.
