Just a couple of days after 'Jersey Shore' star Deena Cortese announced that she's expecting her first child with husband Christopher Buckner, she has now revealed her pregnancy cravings to the world and showing off her baby bump.

The reality TV star took to Instagram in order to give fans and followers a glimpse of her baby bump and also spoke about all the cravings she's having as a result of her pregnancy. "Excited to share our pregnancy journey with all of you!! Our first bump pic," Deena wrote to her followers. "Don't worry I won't post bump pics every single week! Lol but this is the first!! #bumppic #motherandson #christopherjohn #weeklybumppic."

The reality star posed in a blue dress for the pictures and, in her post, she also revealed that she is currently 14-weeks along in her pregnancy. "STOP MY LITTLE BUMP," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi wrote in the comments section. "I am so fricken happy for you my meatball. I love you."



And for all the people who are still quite clueless about what Cortese has on her Amazon chalkboard, she revealed a close-up on Instagram Stories. The new mother-to-be is currently feeling "tired but excited," and is craving fruit, candy and ice pops. 

Just two days ago, the 31-year-old made the cutest announcement for the arrival of their future son. She hand-picked a couple of pictures of her and husband Christopher Buckner from the baby announcement photoshoot, to reveal that the couple is expecting their first baby in December. The couple later revealed the sonography images of their unborn son.



Deena and Christopher have already decided on the baby's name - Christopher John - which she revealed in her post caption that read: "Chris and I decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans! Now that we are safely into our second trimester, we and our little monkey are ready to tell the world our little family is growing!"

She also added "We have a sweet little boy on the way! We are truly blessed, and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness that December can’t come soon enough! Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John you are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!"

In most pictures, the couple can be seen holding out two cute little white-colored infant onesies with personalized messages. One reads: "Coming soon baby Buckner December 2018," while the message on the other reads: "Red, white & blue, our little 'Fire Cracker' is due December 2018."



The 'Jersey Shore' star married Chris Buckner on October 28 last year in a romantic ceremony in New Egypt, New Jersey. As previously reported, the guests who attended the wedding included her former costars Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, and Paul DelVecchio (aka “DJ Pauly D”), Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Vinnie Guadagnino. 

Cortese wore a sleeveless gown with floral applique and a sweetheart neckline, leaving her hair down. Buckner, whom Cortese had dated for almost six years, wore a sharp classic black suit with a bowtie. The couple had walked down the aisle to Christina Perri's 'A Thousand Years,' and later headed to Laurita Winery for a reception.



However, as the Jersey Shore member goes down the motherhood lane, she, along with her good friend Snooki, came together earlier this year in order to spill out some juicy secrets ahead of their show's season premiere. "Even though we're old, we can still have a good time," Deena told Life & Style. "We're still hot messes!" Snooki later added.

Speaking of the other members of the cast, the duo agreed on one name when asked which cast member on the show has grown the most since the original 'Jersey Shore' premiered in 2009. Their answer: Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

"He's sober now," Deena said. "He's still a little cocky, but he's just a better person altogether." As for who has changed on the show in the least, they both agreed that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is the perfect contender for that role. Perhaps the only thing Snooki regrets about life is that as a mom in her 30s, day-drinking isn't really an option anymore. "If we drank all day then we'd have to sleep in all day to recover," she told the publication. "The hangovers were the worst."



On the other hand, Deena spilled some beans about the rumored second season and what viewers can expect from it. "We really are family and sisters and brothers [now], so there were no boundaries," she explained to the magazine. "We were able to just say what we wanted without worrying about if someone was never going to talk to us again."

Snooki also revealed that the cast of the hit show was paid in gift cards for the first season of the show. “We would get $200 a week from the Shore Store,” said Snooki. “I had never gotten that much in a week, like, every single week, because you usually get paid every two weeks.”
