Baby boy on the way for JWoww!

The former Jersey Shore star, née Jenni Farley, announced Friday that she and husband Roger Mathews are expecting a son in May.

“Roger and I have said from the beginning that, just like it was with [15-month-old daughter] Meilani, it does not matter which [sex] our baby is, as long as he or she is healthy,” Farley wrote on her website.

“Still, we are so excited to be expecting a baby BOY! It’s amazing knowing that we are having one of each, just like Nicole [“Snooki” Polizzi]. I’ve always said I wanted a boy. I think there is something to be said about a mother-and-son bond.”

She continues, “I can’t wait for us to meet him and I know Meilani’s going to be an awesome, protective big sister. I’m so happy they’re going to grow up close in age and now the countdown really begins! May 2016, a mini Roger is coming! Get ready, world,” she joked, captioning cake photos from their gender reveal party.

“Thank you everyone for all your kind words and love for our growing family, we appreciate it so much!”

Farley, 29, and Mathews, 40, met during the filming of the MTV reality show, and were engaged in September 2012. On Oct. 18, they were married in New Jersey in front of family and friends, including castmates Snooki and Pauly D, and announced the pregnancy at the wedding reception.

“Roger and I both cried when we saw the announcement. This was one of the best days of our life,” she said at the time.
