Deena Cortese's 'Little Meatball' Just Made His VMA Debut

The mommy-to-be is at the show with her fellow roomies

Deena Cortese's baby bump is on a family vacation -- at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards!

The Jersey Shore star -- who will return this Jerzday Thursday with her MTV fam -- just walked the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall with her "little meatball." Deena last attended the annual event five years ago (in Brooklyn!), and now she has a special addition with her at this year's Big Apple-based night.
