‘Jersey Shore’ Star Deena Cortese Reveals Motherhood Is ‘Harder Than I Expected’ But It’s ‘So Worth It’

Looks like meatballs aren’t as easy to make as one would think! Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese and her husband, Chris Buckner, gave birth to their first child on January 5 and it seems as though they’ve been learning ever since. Welcoming baby Christopher John, a.k.a. CJ, was undoubtedly an adjustment for the couple, but we’re glad to hear they’re loving every second of the huge change. The 32-year-old first-time mama got candid with a follower on Instagram on January 30 about how things have been going in her world of new motherhood.
