At long last, Jenni Farley and Roger Mathews welcomed their baby girl on Sunday, July 13 at 12:49p.
“Jenni and Roger are so excited to welcome the newest guidette Meilani Alexandra Mathews to the world weighing 7 lbs., 13 oz.,” the “Snooki & JWOWW” star’s rep told MTV News. “Meilani and her parents are doing great and are happy and healthy. Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells.”
Indeed, the wee one was already working on her fitness in utero.
MTV, meanwhile, also feted the happy news, saying in a statement: “We’re fist pumping in celebration of Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathews’ new baby girl Meilani Alexandra Mathews. We’re so excited for the new parents and to welcome the newest member to the MTV family.”
The proud papa also added on Twitter:
She is here! Meilani Alexandra Mathews 7lbs 13 ounces. Words can't describe what looking into your child's eyes can do to you. Im Humbled.

The longtime couple announced that their family was growing last Christmas — and quickly received an outpouring of fan support as well as baby love from JWOWW’s former “Jersey Shore” cast members. Soon after, the duo revealed that they would be seeing pink in the not-so-distant future.
But the “Jersey” girl’s first trimester wasn’t smooth sailing — she even declared that pregnancy was “the worst thing ever.” Lucky for her, she had her “phenomenal” fiance for support — along with her BFF and pregnancy partner-in-crime Nicole Polizzi.
“She’s always been by my side, and then to find out that she’s pregnant, this made me feel a thousand times better, ’cause I get to experience this with her,” Jenni lovingly dished to MTV News about the thrilling time.
