Lauren and Mike announced they were expecting last month, writing in holiday cookie dough, "Baby Sorrentino May 2021." The expectant reality star captioned the big news, "Our biggest blessing is on its way," while the father-to-be wrote in his caption, "We have a Baby Situation."
The couple married in an elaborate wedding shown on Family Vacation in November 2018, just two months before The Situation reported to prison, where he served eight months on tax evasion charges before being released in September 2019. Two months after the Sorrentinos were reunited, Lauren revealed that she had experienced a miscarriage as the couple started to try to grow their family.
During an appearance on Strahan, Sara, and Keke in November 2019, Lauren revealed they had conceived the night her husband came home from prison, but that about seven weeks later, she lost the baby. "It was heart-wrenching," she shared. "When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing. … It was hard. It was really difficult."
Lauren said that she explained that she wanted to be open about her experience with pregnancy loss because of how common it is for women. "I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process," she explained, adding that the couple would be trying again for another baby as soon as she was ready.
