Well this was some news we weren't expecting.

This Monday, TMZ first revealed that everybody's favorite DJ (OK, not really) is now the proud papa of a baby girl. And she's already a few months old!

Why all the secrecy? It's probably due to the fact that the infamous DJ and the baby's mother aren't exactly in a relationship. In fact, they hardly know each other. Reports are claiming the baby came after a one-time fling in Vegas, when the pair (who both just so happen to be from Jersey) met up.

But planned or unplanned, it sounds like Pauly D (aka Paul DelVecchio) is pretty happy about it—and is even looking to develop a relationship with the baby's mother.

"[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way," a source told E! News, "but God works in mysterious ways."

The 33-year-old DJ has been pretty vocal about his love of kids in recent years, especially after his BFF Snooki had her baby boy Lorenzo. At the time, he told People, "I want to be Uncle Pauly ... and I want to be a part of that baby's life, because Snooki is one of my best friends now, and I'd love to be with her when she's delivering the baby, and I'd love to babysit."

And friends say he's not shying away from diaper duty, either—he's "ready to jump in and take responsibility as a father."

Naturally, we suspect those responsibilities will include teaching his firstborn the finer arts of Gym, Tan, Laundry. (You really have to set those priorities early.)
