Jersey Shore cast member Deena Cortese is officially a mother, and she could not be prouder of her "boys."
The 31-year-old MTV personality shared two new images of her newborn son CJ late Saturday night. Right by his side in both images is Cortese's husband, Chris Buckner.
The first shot shows the proud papa holding CJ in his arms. CJ is swaddled and is opening his eyes just a little bit.
The second photo shows CJ sleeping in a hospital bassinet. Behind him is a label showing his birth date, time and weight. Buckner is shown lying in a bed next to CJ. He is looking over at his baby boy as Cortese snaps the photo.
"My boys. I’ve never loved something so much in my entire life," Cortese captioned the photos. "Our little prince. It was a tough two days, and I couldn’t have done it without my other half."
She then added hashtags for "worth every moment" and "I'd do it all over again."
The adorable photo set has been liked more than 289,000 times.
