Third trimester! Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese is currently pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband Chris Buckner, and she’s already about 9 weeks away from her due date. Deena took to Instagram on Friday, Oct. 26, to share a pregnancy update with fans and she also flaunted her growing baby bump in a dress that hugged her new pregnancy curves.
“30-week bump pic! Baby is as big as a cantaloupe. Mommy is craving apples and chocolate and feeling large and in charge. Daddy and Mommy are both excited to meet our baby boy in just nine weeks and two days!” the 31-year-old wrote in the caption of her pic, where she stood to the side and cradled her adorable baby bump.
Fans flooded Deena’s comments gushing over her pregnancy glow. “You look totally amazing! Pregnancy suits you!” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Awww u [sic] have the beautiful pregnancy glow!”
Deena and Chris announced their pregnancy in July with a cute Fourth of July-themed baby announcement where they also announced the gender. Deena is pregnant with a baby boy and the couple will name their son Christopher John: Christopher after Deena’s hubby and John, after Deena’s late father, and she already calls her son by his nickname, CJ.

Uhg I can’t wait for our little man to wear this 💙 esp since I recently got a text from @alxmrchenergy saying my dad prepared CJ and gives his soul to me because he’s gotten it ready .. I’ve always believed a babies soul meets passed loved ones before being born and she confirmed it..and CJ knew and will always know my dad 💙 ( I know some people might not believe in that sort of thing .. but I truly do .. so please keep the negative and non believer comments away from this post ) 💙
The Jersey Shore alum is also making sure to include her late father in her unborn son’s life. Earlier this month, she shared an adorable personalized outfit she had made for little CJ with a shirt that reads: “Handpicked for earth by my grandfather in heaven.”
“I can’t wait for our little man to wear this esp [sic] since I recently got a text from @alxmrchenergy saying my dad prepared CJ and gives his soul to me because he’s gotten it ready,” Deena wrote in the caption. “I’ve always believed a babies soul meets passed loved ones before being born and she confirmed it…and CJ knew and will always know my dad.”
