In 2019, Cortese welcomed her son Christopher John (“CJ”) into the world. Now she’s patiently awaiting the arrival of her second son with her husband, Chris Buckner. 

“We’re so excited to announce we’re expecting Baby Buckner #2 May 1, 2021,” Cortese shared on Twitter a few days before Halloween. 

A few days later on Halloween, Cortese shared photos of her family on Instagram and revealed the sex of baby number two. CJ will have a baby brother in May 2021.

More recently, Cortese took to social media to share the name she and her husband have chosen for their second son.

Like the Sorrentinos, Cortese has been extremely open about her pregnancy on social media. On Dec. 12, Cortese revealed the name of baby number two — Cameron Theo Buckner. 

“This pregnancy has been super different from my first,” Cortese said on Instagram. “I feel like I can already feel our little Cameron’s personality.” 

The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star said she hasn’t felt as sick or as tired as she did with her first pregnancy. 

“Cameron has been so different for the first 18 weeks — some days I’d forget I was even pregnant,” she added. “He’s very calm in there lol.” 

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino thinks Deena Cortese is naming her second son after Theo James 

During the “Quarantine Fatigue” episode of the Here’s the Sitch podcast, Mike and Lauren briefly discussed names for their baby. While they won’t reveal the names they like just yet, they did talk about the name Cortese chose for her second child. 

“She’s a big fan of Divergent,” Mike explained. “Theo James is in [those films, and] I think that’s one of the reasons why she went with that [middle] name, which is pretty funny.”

Cortese has yet to comment on whether or not James really did inspire the her second son’s middle name.
