The 'Jersey Shore' better make room for one more: Yet another of the reality show's former stars has become a parent!

Pauly D, 33, welcomed a baby daughter today (Oct. 22), a source tells E! News. It is the first child for the DJ, who reportedly is "very excited" and "has always wanted kids."

While Pauly and the baby's mother are not involved romantically, he "is hoping to develop a relationship" with her, the source says. "[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way, but God works in mysterious ways."

Pauly, whose real name is Paul DelVecchio, was certainly enthusiastic about being an uncle to his 'Jersey Shore' castmate Snooki's son, Lorenzo. "I want to be Uncle Pauly," he said in 2012 before the baby's birth. "And I want to be a part of that baby's life, because Snooki is one of my best friends now, and I'd love to be with her when she's delivering the baby, and I'd love to babysit."
