OCEAN COUNTY – New Egypt native and former Jersey Shore cast member, Deena Cortese, recently gave birth to her first child. Cortese welcomed her baby boy, named Christopher John (CJ), into the world on January 5 alongside her husband Chris Buckner.
Cortese posted a video of her newborn son to Instagram, writing: “Our Little Man has finally arrived…Christopher John Buckner (CJ) born January 5th at 4:41 pm at a whopping 20.5 inches..6 Lb 8.5 ounces…Uhg mommy and daddy love you so much CJ .. youre our everything i never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did until i saw him hold CJ.”
Despite the bliss that accompanies a newborn child, Cortese noted that giving birth was rough. “It was a tough two days and I couldn’t have done it without my other half,” she posted to social media.
Cortese and Buckner announced their pregnancy in July 2018. She now joins fellow Jersey Shore cast members Snooki and JWoww in motherhood.
