Report: Pauly D In Custody Battle

Meet baby Amabella.

Although previously reported that Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio welcomed a daughter on October 22, his baby girl was born 5 months ago. According to Us Weekly, the 33-year-old Jersey Shore star and former Hooters waitress, Amanda Markert, are now fighting over custody of their darling daughter.

Reportedly, Pauly D has filed a motion to move a custody hearing to Las Vegas where he owns a home. The reality star-DJ has requested immediate visitation with his daughter and wants to gain fully custody.

“I’m proud I’m a father,” Pauly said once the news broke. “I am excited to embark on this new part of my life.”

The reality star only recently found out that he was a father.

“She contacted him after the baby was born. He of course had to take precautions before believing the baby was his, but he is definitely excited to be a dad,” an insider tells the mag. “Pauly is taking responsibility and will be in this child’s life one way or another.”

This is the first child for the Jersey Shore star. Markert also has an older child, a son named Mikey, from a previous relationship.

    “I’m proud I’m a father”

    Let’s see: One night stand, DNA test, illegitimate child, custody battle, never met your child. Yup, that’s a lot to be proud of.

      Oh please! Do you know how many people in this country have unexpected pregnancies and yet are proud and happy to have their children? Did you want him to say something like, “it was a one night stand I’m so embarrassed about my kid and being a dad!” Give me a break. Make sure you don’t fall off your high horse while trying to throw stones there, sweetheart.

      • whatever

        @ Jen – unexpected pregnancies LFMAO they didnt use protection – many of these kids end up in foster homes, on welfare, in prison i.e. screw ups.

    • Agree

      another idiot too lazy to wear protection another kid with douchebag for parents

  • Someone

    This d-bag is going to fight the mother of his child for full custody?! What kind of person tries to take a baby from it’s mom? Unless she truly is unfit, be happy that you can see your daughter on a regular basis. Don’t take the poor kid away.

      How do that work for you?

      • Someone

        Ummmm what?

      • Someone

        Your post makes no sense. Where are you getting the information that the mother is keeping the little girl away from him?

          Do you really not understand that it’s the same paragraph, just flipped around?

          Why is everyone so okay with him just getting visitation? Why SHOULDN’T he fight her for custody? Why do you automatically assume that the baby SHOULD be in her mother’s custody?

          • Someone

            Yeah I got it. Thanks for the explanation *eye roll*. I was just incredulous to how stupid it sounded.

          • InTouch

            Someone — It sounds stupid that he should have custody? Why?

  • SMH

    I agree. What makes him a “fit” dad to take full custody of a baby. I mean everyone has a chance to grow up, Snookie seemed to do it, so I hope Pauly D does as well. But unless the mother is truly unfit there is no reason to try and take her away from her mother.

      Constantly amazed at people who think dad’s should be happy with 2 hours here and 2 hours there, but mothers should get the kids on a full-time basis. What logic does that make?

      • Belle

        He travels all over DJing plus makes money from club appearances in different places. He doesn’t have a normal 9-5 job. Who would watch her while he is traveling all over? Who would watch her from 10pm-3am when he is DJing if he got full custody? I don’t think it is feasible for him to have full custody.

        He gave her money for an abortion so he knew she was pregnant and he hasn’t given her any money until now. And why take it public? It seems like he is doing this more to get 15 more minutes of fame in the press rather than in the best interest of his daughter.

          The same person who would watch the baby while mom at work for 8 to 9 hours a day.

          Kids sleep from 10pm to 3am so he would be home when she awake and to take her to school, pick her up and to put her to bed now and when she gets older.

          If I were to go by your thinking then cops, doctors, nurses, firemen/women, correction officers ext…. Should not have custody of their kids.

  • Booka

    He won’t get full custody. He’s just going full bore right now to try and get as much as he can in terms of custody. The baby doesn’t look neglected or unhappy. Markert is probably not a bad mother even if she does come off as money hungry.

  • Jen

    I don’t care for the name, but boy is she a cutie! She definitely resembles him, too.

  • Lola

    Children need more mother than father. He is looser. I hope mother of baby has full custody.

  • kim

    that baby alright!

  • anonymous

    she is gorgeous with a nice head of hair

  • whatever

    His job as a DJ won’t allow him to get full custody, this kid is just another ATM baby. What is wrong with women these days they seem to aspire to sleep with random rich men have their baby and expect everthing to be hunky dory sheesh…
