Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren stopped by Strahan, Sara & Keke on Monday to share some details about their life post-prison, and the couple revealed that they recently suffered a “heart-wrenching” miscarriage.
Lauren told the talk show hosts that she and Mike actually conceived the night he came home from prison, which was September 12th. But, not long after they lost the pregnancy.
“And then at about six-and-a-half, seven weeks, I miscarried. It was heart-wrenching,” said Lauren. “When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing. It was hard. It was really difficult.”
Lauren – who was Mike’s college sweetheart – explained that she didn’t want to hold this in because she wanted to be honest and help others who are going through a similar tragedy. It also helps her heal through the process.
Mike and Lauren got married in November 2018, just after he pleaded guilty to tax evasion, and just before he started his eight-month prison sentence. The couple already had babies on the brain before Mike’s release from prison.
His co-star Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio told Us Weekly back in August that the couple was “already trying” to conceive, and during a prison visit they “smuggled out his [Mike’s] sperm and gave it to Lauren.”
As soon as he was released, Mike told the outlet that he and Lauren had been working on getting pregnant since the moment he got home. He added that he would love to have a little boy first, and they were excited for “little Situations.”
Lauren agreed, saying they love chaos and a busy, loud home. She said they would love to have at least three kids, but considering they didn’t have any at the moment that number is pretty ambitious.
Despite their heartbreak, the couple has been doing well now that they can live life together as a married couple instead of being forced to live apart. Mike lost a lot of weight in prison and got into amazing shape, which he has continued post-prison.
Mike and Lauren Sorrentino continue to live by his motto, “The comeback is always greater than the setback.”
New episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation air Thursday nights on MTV.
