We know three little doggies that might be craving some attention come July 2014. In just six months, Bella, Noel and Diesel — a.k.a. Jenni Farley‘s “fur babies” — will need to make room for a new addition to the family, because their mom is pregnant! Jenni and her fiancé Roger Mathews shared the news with fans on Christmas Day, and while the Internet immediately blew up with heartfelt congratulations, the announcement didn’t exactly come as a huge shock.
Throughout the current season of “Snooki & JWOWW,” the couple began to seriously consider parenthood — from plowing through Nicole and Jionni’s baby boot camp to researching adoption, it was only a matter of time until they took the big leap. And while the two are most likely feeling a little scared of the unknown right now, we’re 100 percent sure they’ve got the chops to be amazing caretakers. Here’s why:
They’re fiercely protective. Jenni and Roger always have each other’s backs, as evidenced by the occasional “Jersey Shore” bar fight with way-too-handsy Karma-dwellers. Mess with their kid, and it’ll be Knuckle Sandwich City.
They’re creative! Kids gets bored fast, so parenting takes a little imagination — especially if you don’t want to deal with public temper tantrums. Ol’ Rog took home the gold for creativity with his post-skydive marriage proposal (complete with Russell Stover happy trail) and JWOWW oozes innovation through her bold fashion sense, culinary skills and festive doggy hair color treatments. Building the world’s biggest pillow fort should be a breeze!
They’re constantly working on their communication. Though it took some convincing, Roger eventually agreed to attend couples’ therapy with his fiancé to work out some of their issues, and while the conversations sometimes got uncomfortable, both spoke to each other openly and honestly, which is an essential part of raising a happy, well-adjusted child.
They have the relevant childcare experience. Having a bestie with a wee babe definitely provides its fair share of parental practice. Not only that, but while Jenni regularly tends to her trio of pups as if they were birthed from her own lady flower, Roger recently passed Snooki and Jionni’s baby boot camp with flying diapers!
They’re in this relationship for the long haul. Sure, Jenni and Roger put the madly in “madly in love,” but their passion only furthers their mutual attraction. Like all couples, they’ve had their rough patches, but the rocky times have only served to strengthen their bond, and at the end of the day, they’re both too stubborn to ever give up on a good thing.
