It’s double the joy for Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Roger Mathews.

The couple announced during their wedding reception on Sunday that they’re expecting another baby in May.

They’re already parents to daughter Meilani Alexandra, 15 months.

“Our wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. It’s hard for me to determine which was my most favorite moment because there were so many WOW factors to our wedding,” the bride tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Our wedding planner, Robynne Adoff of Party Extravaganza, really made this entire process flawless. We wanted to announce to all of our guests that we are expecting, [so] Robynne surprised us with her idea of the photo blown up and Meilani being wheeled out in a flowered wagon by Angela’s Fantasy Creations.”

She adds, “Roger and I both cried when we saw the announcement. This was one of the best days of our life.”

The mom-to-be shared the news on her personal page Monday morning.

“IT’S TRUE, WE ARE EXPECTING BABY NUMBER TWO!! (Hey, that rhymes, lol.) So tired from all the wedding fun but wanted to share with you guys the news so you get it from me first,” Farley, 29, wrote on her website.

“I will update you more ASAP. All I know THIS was the hardest secret to ever keep!! We are so excited to share it with you guys, though. And keeping it a secret was worth it for the response last night from all of our family and friends. The best!!!”

This will be the second child for the Jersey Shore alum and her new husband, 40.

“So YES, Meilani is going to be a big sister and we are due in May 2016,” adds Farley. “HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE LAST NIGHT!! (Well, tied with the day Meilani was born) Married to the man of my dreams and the best daddy to my babies!! Can’t wait for you all to see the wedding pictures!”

The pair met during the filming of the MTV reality show, and were engaged in September 2012. On Sunday, they were married in New Jersey in front of family and friends, including castmates Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Pauly D.


Entertainment Tonight was first to report the news.

Classless is all I have to say.

Its a little early to be announcing a pregnancy. Probably should wait until shes in the safe zone….even though the 2nd trimester and sometimes even the 3rd is not really a safe zone

PCC on

Classy. Announcing your pregnancy at your wedding.

Nanu21 on

congratulations…..best wishes ….much happiness

No picture of the tacky banner they rolled out to announce it? So disappointing. Why announce it before you’re out of your first trimester? I guess for the attention. MTV cameras must have been rolling.

Gross. Jersey trash just keep on growing.

Kate on

Wow her plastic face is whack. Wish she would have just stuck with her original face.

Damn Gina on

That is so trashy!!

Congrats on the baby but just the other day before her wedding she was wearing a waist trainer. I really just can’t imagine that wearing that stupid thing would be smart regardless of how far along you are in your pregnancy. Vanity. Definitely my favorite sin.

Mrs. B on

How tacky! Getting pregnant twice before marriage and having the nerve to announce it at your wedding! People don’t have any values these days.

Yikes on

Tacky. Kinda matches all the plastic surgery she has had.

This is 2015! People have babies all the time out of wedlock. It’s not right for everyone but you have to learn to roll with the times. Congrats to Jenni and Roger! Alexandra is adorable!!

Bettie003 on

Wow, they both need to lay off the botox, congrats

guest on

I can’t imagine wearing a waist trainer which she herself says is “aggressive” is really all that good of an idea to wear while you’re pregnant. Anything to look good (from the neck down).

Dawn on

Just not between May 3-5, okay? lol

Summer on

She’s not even out of first trimester yet. SMH.

KS on

First of all, there is NEVER a safe zone to let people know that you are pregnant. Miscarriages can happen at any moment, even later on in pregnancies and sometimes in the 3rd trimester. I can’t stand that people judge others about sharing such great news with family and people that they love. Who cares when people decided to share this great news.

KS- Thank you! The last time I checked, there was no law stating you have to wait until the second trimester to announce a pregnancy. I wouldn’t personally announce until that point (partly because my own parents- yes, I am including BOTH of them, because this tragedy affects both halves of a couple- suffered two first trimester miscarriages), but to each their own!

At any rate, congrats to them!

Courtney on

Um she probably is in her second trimester which starts at 13 weeks. She could be due early May. Has anyone been pregnant before? I got pregnant in Feb and was due in Dec – but it was late Feb and early Dec. having said that I do believe marriage first babies second! Congratulations on your wedding!
