Snooki isn't the only parent in the Jersey Shore cast any more!

In case you haven't heard, Pauly D has welcomed a baby daughter, a source confirms to E! News. And Pauly D's reality TV pal JWoww couldn't be more excited for the 33-year-old new dad.

"Holy s--t I just heard!" JWoww tells E! News exclusively of the recent baby news. "I'm so f--king happy for him I just texted him. Crying! He's going to be the best dad ever!"

A source told us this morning that Pauly (real name Paul DelVecchio) is "very excited" about being a dad and "has always wanted kids." "[Pauly is] ready to jump in and take responsibility as a father," the source added.

As for the mother of Pauly's baby girl, Pauly "didn't have a previous relationship" with her, but he "is hoping to develop a relationship" with her, the source explains. "[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way," says the source, "but God works in mysterious ways."

Hopefully Pauly took down some parenting notes from Snooki, who welcomed her son Lorenzo with fiancé Jionni LaValle back in August 2012.
