Call it fist-pumping for the future.
Having said he'd be available to deejay in the delivery room when his Jersey Shore castmate Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has her baby boy in early September, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio is already sounding like a proud uncle.
"Snooki is going to make a great mother," DelVecchio, 32, told PEOPLE at Sunday's 2012 Teen Choice Awards. "She's a really nice girl, a sweet girl, and now that the partying is done because she's having this baby, I think she's going to be a great mother."
And when he's not spinning turntables or focusing on his Jersey Shore spinoff The Pauly D Project, the well-tanned man with the architecturally-impressive hair very much wants to play a major role in Snooki's newly reconstituted life.

Don't look now – no, really, don't look – but Joe Jonas and Carmen Electra will be among the celebrities choosing ordinary people to date, sight unseen, on the upcoming Fox reality show The Choice.
The network has unveiled a list of 24 stars – 20 men and four women – who will compete for the hearts of attractive singles they can't see, in a show format that mirrors NBC's singing contest The Voice.
The other men include reality stars Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and Rob Kardashian; model Tyson Beckford; pro football players Rob Gronkowski and Ndamukong Suh; and actor Dean Cain.

Get ready for gym, tan, maternity clothes on Jersey Shore.
Following speculation about whether or not the show would be renewed for a sixth season, all seven cast mates – including a pregnant Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – are set to return to Seaside Heights, N.J., during this summer to begin filming, according to a press release from MTV.
"The house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory as their lives outside of the 'Shore' take off in exciting new directions," the network says.
"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same."

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had an idea for whom she wanted in the delivery room besides fiancé Jionni LaValle when she gives birth to her first child: Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio!
"She told me she wants me to deejay the delivery room," Delvecchio, 31, tells PEOPLE. "I told her I'll just deejay the baby shower."
His baby shower role will have to come in between his deejaying at Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel, where he is beginning a deejaying residency, as well as his show The Pauly D Project, which premieres on MTV March 29.

"Nicole and I are real excited!! Our baby is going to be #ShortnTan."

Home is where the heart is. But for the Jersey Shore crew, it's also the where the fighting, drunkenness and general mayhem are.
Arriving in New Jersey after a season in Italy, the cast of the MTV show spare little time getting back to their wild and crazy roots, judging by the just-released trailer for season 5, premiering Jan. 5.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi get into a major fight. Vinny Guadagnino announces he's leaving the shore house. And a huge bar brawl erupts in Seaside Heights that leaves Sorrentino bleeding.

Jason Trawick isn't the only one getting some seriously sexy one-on-one time with Britney Spears.
Her boyfriend may have been called onstage for a sultry pole-dance performance earlier this month, but Jersey Shore star Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio was treated to an equally seductive, Seaside Heights-worthy serenade at Thursday night's Femme Fatale tour stop in Montreal.
Pauly D, 31, who is deejaying six stops of her concert tour this month, was handcuffed to the pole as the pop star launched into her steamy song, "Lace and Leather." Shaking and shimmying, Spears, 29, wrapped a pink boa around his neck before climbing on to his shoulders with the help of a back-up dancer.

Italy may never be the same.
During Monday night's broadcast of Teen Wolf, MTV aired the trailer for season 4 of Jersey Shore, which premieres Aug. 4 (10 p.m. ET).
From the looks of it, Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, Deena, Sammi, JWoww and Ronnie are in for the most dramatic season yet, as the roommates do what they do best: go clubbing, hook up and fight.
"I'm going back to the Motherland," The Situation declares.

How do you say "brace yourself" in Italian?
Jersey Shore's season 4 premiere is less than a month away – and now PEOPLE.com has your first look at an official cast photo, and it appears they're not holding anything back.
In the shot, the cast gets all glammed-up for a late-night run through the streets of Florence, Italy, where they filmed the show starting in May. (It must have been a short stay, though. They were already back in Seaside Heights, N.J., by the end of June and hard at work at season 5.) The season begins Aug. 4 on MTV (10 p.m. ET).
