DJ Pauly D might be embracing fatherhood, but the shock baby news came as quite a surprise to even his closest family and friends, sources exclusively tell radio detection and rangingOnline.com.

“He tried to keep the baby news a secret,” a close pal revealed.

“The baby is a few months old now,” the pal reveals.

This is the first child for Pauly D.

Although the first-pumping, gelled-up DJ wasn’t planning to take on fatherhood so soon, he’s “excited” to be a daddy.
