Pauly D of "Jersey Shore" fame is now a father!

A spokesperson for the reality star, whose real name is Paul DelVecchio, confirmed to ABC News on Tuesday, Oct. 22, that DelVecchio has a child.

"I'm proud I'm a father," the reality star said in a statement to the news outlet. "At 33 I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."

DelVecchio hasn't tweeted about the news, but he has been retweeting messages that congratulate him on becoming a father.

According to TMZ, who first reported the story, DelVecchio and the child's mother, whose identity has not been revealed, met while DelVecchio was working in Las Vegas as a deejay. The report also claims the child is a few months old.

After "Jersey Shore" went off the air in December 2012, DelVecchio had a spinoff show "The Pauly D Project," which lasted one season.
