The DJ admitted to accidentally getting a woman pregnant following a one-night stand with a former Hooters waitress.
The girl, a single mother of two (she also has a son from another relationship) and student, Amanda Markert, welcomed their daughter together, Amabella DelVecchio, a year ago after agreeing to a paternity test confirming Pauly D is definitely the father.
Amanda revealed on Twitter, Pauly pressured her into an abortion. However, she took the money and couldn’t go through with it.
Since then, Pauly D has come around to the idea of being a father and has tried to gain as much access to Amabella as possible. “I was nervous until I saw her face. When I saw her eyes light up and her arms reach out for me, it was an amazing feeling,” he said of meeting his daughter in the weeks following her birth. “She is beautiful.”
However, they’ve yet to formally agree to custody.
“He wanted to get Amabella for her birthday, but they’re still fighting in court [over custody],” a source told Radar. “He’s hoping to have Amabella the week after… He will spoil her and loves her more than anything.”
