"Sometimes in life things aren't planned and they may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing," Pauly D tweets.
The "Jersey Shore" alum also released a statement reading, "That is how I feel about having a daughter, I am looking forward to being a parent to her."
According to reports, Pauly D and 25-year-old Amanda Markert hooked up just once in Las Vegas, but it was enough to get her pregnant. Nine months later she had their daughter, who she named Amabella, in New Jsersey. Though Pauly D hasn't met his daughter yet, he is trying to get custody and already submitted a DNA test to confirm his paternity.
"I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life," the DJ told TMZ. This is his first child.
