We see you, girl! Deena Cortese shared a stunning selfie while rocking a black, high-waisted bikini. “Got that curvy figure back thanks to quarantine,” the Jersey Shore star, 33, captioned her Instagram post on Tuesday, May 26. 

Deena, her husband, Christopher Buckner, and their son, Christopher John, have been self-isolating together in New Jersey since social distancing measures began in March. The dedicated parents are constantly keeping their 16-month-old entertained with movie nights, outdoor adventures and yummy meals. 

For Mother’s Day, Deena gushed that her boys “spoiled” her. “We had a social distance meeting with our families … had such a great day together,” the MTV personality captioned a series of pictures on May 10. 

Since giving birth in January 2019, Deen has been incredibly transparent with fans about her experience as a first-time parent. “Motherhood is definitely harder than I expected and I never understood [people] telling me while pregnant to get sleep,” she explained to one of her followers in February 2019. “But it’s all so worth it, he’s my little sidekick. We got this.”

When it comes to giving little CJ a sibling, Deena previously told Life & Style she had definite plans for baby No. 2. “Well, I want to have time with him and we want to appreciate him, but we were thinking we want our kids to be close in age,” the Couples Therapy alum said. “So, maybe a year and a half and then start trying again, but the first year and a half, we want to give all our attention to CJ.”

Given the global pandemic, it’s possible her plans have changed, but either way, we can’t wait for CJ to be a big brother someday. In the meantime, he has a great friendship with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s youngest son, Angelo.

Earlier in quarantine, the best buds FaceTimed with the help of their mamas — who, of course, are longtime BFFs themselves. We can’t wait for everyone to reunite for some GTL.
