Sorrentino Plans to Avoid the ‘Dad Bod’
In an April 2021 interview with Daily Pop, The Situation discussed how he plans to avoid the dreaded "dad bod."
"The gym is my best friend," he said. Sorrentino explained it was something that he had been doing for the past 10 to 20 years to be his best self, and it was also one tool he used to recover and tackle things one day at a time.
Lauren revealed she was ecstatic to meet her tiny bundle of joy and decorated the baby’s room.
Sorrentino also noted that Romeo would have to wait till he’s 18 years old to see some of the classic NSFW Jersey Shore clips.
The MTV personality who served eight months in prison for tax evasion admitted that he was certainly going to show him Jersey Shore: Family Vacation first since that series represents his recovery.
He further elaborated that he was a positive influence in the community and had been clean for five years. “I'm in a happy marriage with a positive message. I'll probably wait until he's 18 so he can watch Jersey Shore the series,” he added.
The couple has been happily married since November 2018 after being engaged for five months.
