Mike Sorrentino’s baby boy will arrive soon 

Many Jersey Shore fans were elated to find out “Big Daddy Sitch” and Lauren were expecting a child. Lauren has been keeping Jersey Shore fans updated throughout her pregnancy on the It’s Baby Situation Instagram account. Her most recent post was a 37-week update.

“Baby Sitch is the size of a melon,” the mother-to-be wrote. “I’m ready! Mosey is ready to meet his little brother! The nursery is almost ready [and] all the furniture and main pieces are in, all the clothes are washed and put away.” 

The Sorrentinos have been busy preparing for their son’s arrival. According to Lauren’s post, the car seat, bassinet, play yard, swings, and diaper station are all set up, too. 

“All we need is baby boy!” she concluded. “We’re patiently waiting for this guy’s arrival.” With a due date of May 2021, Baby Sorrentino could arrive any day now. 

Mike and Lauren Sorrentino have kept their son’s name a secret

In December 2020, the Sorrentinos shared they were expecting a baby boy. Since revealing the sex of their baby, “The Situation’s” fans have been speculating what his name might be. 

Early guesses included Frankie, Tony, or Marc, according to fans on Reddit. Others thought the Sorrentinos might name their son Luciano, Gino, Sal, or Joey. Mikey Junior was another early contender for Baby Sorrentino’s name

Of course, Situation Junior was also on the table at the time. Despite the excitement surrounding the birth of their son, the Sorrentinos remain tight-lipped about his name. Now, fans are reading into a necklace Lauren wore in a recent social media post. 

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino’s son might have a name that starts with an ‘R’

In one of Lauren’s recent Instagram posts, she’s wearing a gold necklace with a small letter “R.” Fans on Reddit think their son’s name could start with that letter. 

One fan thinks the Sorrentinos might name their son Roman. “It’s totally Roman,” another agreed. “Mike said it means strong. I know I thought it was Leo or something but Roman is definitely on point for them, and a very cute name.”

“So now the question is will he be Roman Michael after ‘BDS’ or Roman Christopher after Lauren’s brother?” a fan asked. Lauren’s brother Christopher Pesce died in October 2013.
