Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese revealed Monday on Instagram that she and husband Christopher Buckner are expecting their first child.

Cortese, who is in her second trimester, revealed her pregnancy in a photo that shows the couple posing on a bridge with a sign next to them reading, "We're excited to say a little firecracker is on the way!" Cortese refers to her growing bump, revealed to be a boy, as "our little monkey" in the post. She also shared a gender-reveal video showing the moment when they learned they were having a boy. Cortese and Buckner wed last October in a ceremony attended by Jersey Shore castmates Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenny "JWoww" Farley, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, and Vinny Guadagnino.
