"Jersey Shore" star Jennifer Farley (aka JWoww), 27, and her fiance, Roger Mathews, 37, are expecting their first baby.
"Merry Christmas from within!" JWoww wrote in a letter that she posted on her website. "Roger and I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas gift this year! We wanted to share this exciting news with you all first because you have been a part of our lives these past few years and seen the love between Roger and I develop and blossom.
"We are so excited to share this new chapter of our lives with you as we become parents and create more memories with a new addition to our family!" she continued. "Thank you for all your love and support and for being there for us throughout the years! We are extremely happy and cannot wait for our bundle of joy to arrive!"
The couple got engaged in September 2012 after Mathews popped the question with a more than 5-carat diamond ring accented by 2.5 carats of pink and white diamonds.
Funny enough, JWoww told me in October that she and Mathews didn't have a very active sex life because he not only works 10 hours a day, but he also spends more than two hours a day at the gym.
"We cook dinner, watch an hour of TV and then pass out," JWoww said. "We're in bed by 10."
JWoww will be the third "Jersey Shore" star to become a parent.
Snooki and her fiance Jionni LaValle are parents to 1-year-old Lorenzo.
And most recently, Pauly D revealed he became a dad about two months ago after former Hooters waitress Amanda Markert gave birth to their daughter, Amabella.
