On Christmas Day, Jenni “JWoww” Farley announced on her website that she is pregnant with her first child with husband Roger Matthews. “Roger and I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas gift this year! We wanted to share this exciting news with you all first because you have been a part of our lives these past few years and seen the love between Roger and I develop and blossom,” wrote Farley, who portrayed Nikki the bartender on Prospect Park’s online reboot of “One Life to Live” and stars alongside Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in MTV’s reality hit, “Snooki & JWoww.”
“We are so excited to share this new chapter of our lives with you as we become parents and create more memories with a new addition to our family!” added Farley. “Thank you for all your love and support and for being there for us throughout the years! We are extremely happy and cannot wait for our bundle of joy to arrive!”
According to a photo retweeted on her Twitter page, the couple are expecting their first child in July. The image read, “JWoww is pregnant…July 2014 Baby Matthews.”
“One Life to Live” fans were shocked earlier this year when it was announced that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame would be joining the cast of The OnLine Network drama series in the recurring role of Nikki, but the reality star and actress is having a blast. When Soap Opera Network caught up with Farley during SELF Magazine‘s “SELF ROCKS the SUMMER” music party last night, the actress revealed that she actually prefers being called just Jenni vs JWoww, the nickname she became famous for via MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” She also reveals that we can expect to see her character in Llanview when the soap resumes filming in September.
On Thursday, March 28, when news first broke on the hiring of Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley (“Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW”) on “One Life to Live” in the recurring role of Nikki, Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network noted, “JWOWW got some acting tips from Josh Kelly, who plays con man Cutter Wentworth. Things got out of control after Kelly showed JWOWW how to do a ‘pretend’ slap. After a brief demonstration, Kelly asked JWOWW to slap, and she really did!” That slap is now available for viewing as MTV takes you being the scenes of JWOWW’s first day on the set of the iconic soap. Also included in the video is Kelly discussing “showmances,” where co-stars find romance off-screen.
