Is Deena Cortese from Jersey Shore pregnant? On Episode 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, she started complaining about feeling some odd symptoms and her Jersey Shore co-stars tried to help her diagnose what she was feeling. But one of them made a valid point, telling her that her symptoms could mean that she's pregnant!
Deena woke up the next day after they arrived in Miami and she said her hands were so swollen that she couldn't take her wedding ring off, and she was also feeling "shaky" and sick. DJ Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino joked with Deena, telling her that she could have congestive heart failure or she might need to have her hand amputated — and Ronnie Magro, whose girlfriend is pregnant with his first child, brought up a serious suggestion. "Or maybe you're pregnant," he said.
But Deena definitely wasn't pregnant with a little meatball of her own during filming — even though she did recently reveal that she definitely has baby fever and she's ready to start trying to have a child with her husband, Christopher Buckner. "Yes! Baby fever totally. We plan on starting to try. We’re trying! I’m very excited," the 31-year-old told Us Weekly. "He wants to have three. I would be fine with two, but the more the merrier, right? Hopefully we get pregnant soon!"
Deena's Jersey Shore besties Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi are both already moms and have two children each with their husbands — Snooki shares five-year-old son Lorenzo and three-year-old daughter Giovanna with her husband Jionni LaValle and JWoww shares three-year-old daughter Meilani and two-year-old son Gresyon with her husband Roger Mathews. So of course, her friends already gave her a ton of advice.
"I talk to the girls all the time about it and they say, 'Listen, you’re going to be trying but don’t get crazy about it because it won’t happen,'" she explained. "I have anxiety to begin with so I’m trying to be like super chill about it but, you know, it takes time. They told me not to stress out about it or think too much, just to have fun and when it happens it happens. That’s what we’re doing."
