Last month, the family of four shared a photo together, posing in front of the Italian-flag-painted garage door of the iconic Shore House as they revealed that the couple's third baby will be a little girl.

In the corner of the photo was a set of little pink footprints, with the caption reading, "SO EXCITED WE’RE HAVING A LITTLE GIRL !!! MARCH 2024 💕 🇮🇹."

The couple first shared their exciting baby news in late September on Instagram. They shared a joint post featuring fall family photos where they posed with a strip of ultrasound photos.

"Good things come in threes 🥹 Adding another pumpkin to our patch 🙏🏼," they wrote. "Baby #3 coming March 2024."

The couple also posed with just Romeo for another photo at the Shore House. Mike held a crying Romeo and the duck phone up to his ear while Lauren held a onesie that read, "Mommy's have a 3rd situation."

"Cabs are Herreee 🚕 Baby Situation # 3 coming in March 2024 🥹," Mike captioned the shot, adding, "A very meaningful iconic moment for our family."

In August, the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star spoke with PEOPLE at the show’s premiere, reflecting on what turning 41 over the summer meant to him.

“I'll be honest with you. I'm happy to make it this far,” Sorrentino said. “I was so wild in my twenties and thirties that being the family man that I am today — being eight years sober in December, a dad of two, married five years in a happy, healthy marriage — I'm killing the game.”
