Jenni "JWoww" Farley and fiance Roger Mathews are officially parents.
The 27-year-old Snooki & Jwoww and former Jersey Shore star gave birth to a baby girl on Sunday at 12:49PM ET, E! News reported.
"Jenni and Roger are so excited to welcome the newest guidette Meilani Alexandra Mathews to the world weighing seven pounds and 13 ounces," Farley's representative said in a statement obtained by E! News. "Meilani and her parents are doing great and are happy and healthy. Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells."
MTV additionally said in a statement, "We're fist pumping in celebration of Jenni 'JWoww' Farley and Roger Mathews' new baby girl Meilani Alexandra Mathews. We're so excited for the new parents and to welcome the newest member to the MTV family."
Last week, Farley posted a photo of her baby bump on her personal blog and captioned it "My Last Week," writing, "It better be!!! Can't wait to meet my baby girl!!"
Farley reportedly celebrated two baby showers with the most recent one being a surprise thrown together by her best friend and reality TV co-star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. In addition to Polizzi, who is currently pregnant with her second child, former Jersey Shore cast members Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Deena Cortese also attended the event.
Farley announced in January she was pregnant with a baby girl. She revealed on Christmas Day in 2013 she and Mathews were expecting their first child. The pair got engaged in September 2012 after two-and-a-half years of dating.
Polizzi, 26, gave birth to her first child, a son named Lorenzo, with fiance Jionni LaValle in August 2012. She is now expecting a baby girl to be born this fall.
