If you thought Vinny Guadagnino’s bromance with Pauly DelVecchio couldn’t get any sweeter, you thought wrong! Speaking exclusively with Life & Style, the longtime MTV personality gushed over his BFF’s skills as a father to his 5-year-old daughter, Amabella.

“[He’s] the best dad in the world,” the Double Shot at Love star said on Sunday, May 26, following his final Chippendales hosting gig at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. “Like, his daughter is literally like him — like a little ball of positivity and you can tell that he raises her that way,” the 31-year-old continued.

“She flies out to Vegas every month for like a week or weeks and spends time with him, so she sees him a lot,” Vinny noted. “That little girl has the best life — I’m jealous of her! She’s got, like, 10 cars, like, little cars, but you know … still.” In addition to all of Amabella’s impressive rides, Pauly’s little lady will be also making her reality TV debut this year.

“His daughter is a very important part of his life,” Vinny said of his buddy’s decision to feature his daughter on the show. “When it comes to finding love, you have to find the person — I mean that person has to be able to also fulfill that part of his life.” Very true, Vinny!

Of course, Pauly, 38, has shared similar sentiments when discussing looking for The One. “For me, it makes me more selective,” the Jersey Shore alum said of dating as a dad. “Being a father, you actually have to meet the two most important women in my life, which are my mother and my daughter.”

We can’t wait to see how Amabella warms up to the ladies on Double Shot of Love. You can catch her appearance this Thursday, May 30, on MTV at 8 p.m. ET.
