Former Jersey Shore star Dj Pauly D has become a first-time dad to a baby girl.

The baby was born a few months ago in New Jersey to a 26 year old woman, according to Tmz.com.

The mum filed legal papers in the state to establish paternity, but the Dj, real name Paul Delvecchio, has already taken a Dna test, to prove he is the father.

He tells Tmz.com, "I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."
