The Jersey Shore is about to get a little more crowded. Jen Harley — who Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is dating — just welcomed their daughter, Ariana Sky, together on April 3 — just two days before the premiere of his MTV reboot Family Vacation. So, let's dig into learn more about Ronnie's lady who is seemingly about to get her heart broken by the fist-pumping guido?
In this week's episode of the reality show, Ron can be seen enjoying some hot tub time with a blonde beauty while filming in Miami. At the time, Jen was pregnant with their baby girl, and judging from his castmate's reactions, we hope Jen is forgiving.
Here's everything you need to know about Jen aka Tater Tot Kitty. (We're assuming there's a good story behind that Instagram handle.)
She made quite a first impression.
The world first learned about Ronnie's new lady-friend in July when he bloodied his hand in Las Vegas. His rep told TMZ he cut his hand on a glass projectile while trying to shield Jen from a nearby fight at TAO nightclub, but the club's rep said he simply broke a bottle he was holding. (One of those stories sounds way more chivalrous than the other.)
She's Ronnie's first love, apparently.
Sorry, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola! Sorry, Malika Haqq! Ronnie says Jen is the first woman to steal his heart. "Yes — we are serious," he told Us Weekly in November. "She is the first person I finally really fell in love with. I want to settle down and have a family; she is that person for me."
The reality star even said he and Jen are contemplating marriage for the not-too-near future. "We think about it, but right now things are good," he said.
She's already a mother.

Jen has an 11-year-old son from a prior relationship, as Us reported in December. But this is be the first kid for Ronnie, so he's been counting on Snooki, Pauly D, and JWOWW for parenting advice. "They all went through different experiences, which is great," he told the magazine.
If she doesn't live in Las Vegas, she certainly loves Las Vegas!
Jen is in Vegas a lot, her Instagram check-ins reveal, so we imagine she lives in or around Sin City. She even had her gender reveal party at a Vegas-area bar. The confetti was pink, so you know what that means. "If you can't tell, we're beyond excited for this baby girl," Jen wrote on Instagram at the time.
And we're beyond excited to meet her, too. According to Pauly D, she looks just like her reality star dad!
