It sounds like Pauly D might already be the best uncle! During an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the Jersey Shore star opened up about Ronnie Magro‘s new baby — whom he welcomed on April 3 with girlfriend, Jen Harley — and what it’s been like to watch his castmate become a dad.

“He came to me with the [baby’s] picture because we all flew to London, and he had to fly right back because his baby mama was in labor,” Pauly shared at the NYC premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation — which took place at the PH-D rooftop at Dream Downtown — earlier this month. “He made it. He’s happy. She looks like Ronnie.”

Pauly, who also has a daughter named Amabella with Amanda Markert, offered some solid parenting advice to his fellow first-time dad. “I just basically told him buckle up, it’s going to be a ride,” the DJ explained. “He’s going to be a great father. He’s a great guy. He has a lot of little sisters. He’s ready.”

Ronnie’s daughter has yet to make her debut on social media, and the couple still hasn’t revealed their baby girl’s name. However, one thing Ronnie has been open about is his current relationship with Jen — which sounds much healthier than his fling with former co-star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. “My love life is good. I actually have a girlfriend right now. We’re been together for a little bit now,” Ronnie told Life & Style in November.

“It’s been longer than most of my relationships besides with Sammi. No high-profile this time. It’s super low-profile.” That may or may not change, since the brunette beauty is set to appear on this season of the MTV reboot.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. EST on MTV. For more exclusive content, sign up for our Life & Style newsletter!
