The next generation of New Jersey Housewives is growing.

Ashlee Holmes, the daughter of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita, announced her pregnancy in a sweet Friday night Instagram photo with fiancé Pete Malleo.

“Had so much fun at @thelittlekernel launch party tonight !! @c3peteo and I are so happy to announce that we’re sprouting a little kernel of our own *coming this fall* !!!” Holmes wrote alongside a photo of the recently engaged couple.

Laurita confirmed the news early Saturday morning, writing on Instagram, “Yes, that’s right! I’m going to be a #Glamma.”

Holmes made headlines during her time on the Bravo series, both clashing on-camera with her mother and during a brawl, pulling out part of cast member Danielle Staub’s extensions.

It’s unclear what part of Holmes’ pregnancy might make its way into the forthcoming RHONJ season, though her engagement to Malleo was reportedly captured for the cameras, and Laurita will return to the series full-time.

Mom seems to be in Holmes’ corner, too, previously tweeting her engagement ring was “BEAUTIFUL!!”
