We will have another “Jersey Shore” wedding on our hands very soon and this time it’s one of the guys! Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Pesces, and she said ‘yes.’
The Situation didn’t earn his legendary nickname for exhibiting good behavior. As a matter of fact, the “Jersey Shore” star got himself into so much trouble during and after the first installment of the MTV reality series that he’s in paying for it now.
However, none of the TV personality’s bad boy ways scared off the love of his life. While filming the new season of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” Mike realized that he wants to step it up and make Lauren his wife.
Mike told producers his wishes on how he wanted to pop the question.
“Once we got the chance to do “Family Vacation,” I approached the executive producers and I let them know, ‘Listen I really want to do this. This show is really special to me. This is the show that introduced me to the world. It was really special for me to do this, to get down on one knee on Jersey Shore,” he explained to Us Weekly.
It wasn’t only important for viewers to get to see the proposal on TV, he also stated how imperative it was to have his friends/castmates help him plan and watch it unfold.
“It’s so pretty, I’m around my best friends, it’s on one of the biggest reality shows in the country and the way that we all did it … I’m so proud of it,” he added.
Lauren, of course, couldn’t have been happier. She has been waiting for this moment for many years and had ample time to plan exactly how she wants her wedding.
She was also flattered at the lengths the gang went to help Mike execute the proposal when she went to visit him in Miami on Valentine’s Day.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
