JWoww is pregnant.

"Jersey Shore" reality star Jennifer "JWoww" Farley announced on her website Christmas Day that she and fiance Roger Mathews are expecting their first child.

"Merry Christmas from within!" wrote Farley, who is from Franklin Square and in her late 20s, in a post titled "We Are Expecting!" and featuring a Christmas card with a sonogram image. "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 [have] seen the love between Roger and me develop and blossom. 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!"

Mathews, a teamster who drives hazmat tankers, tweeted separately, "Santa brought us something really special this year!!!!" with an image of the card.

The couple said the baby, whose sex was not revealed, is due in July, a date that puts Farley roughly near the end of her first trimester.

"I'M SO EXCITED! MY BEST FRIEND @JENNIWOWW IS PREGNANT!" tweeted "Jersey Shore" castmate Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Farley's co-star on the current spinoff "Snooki & JWoww" and the mother of a boy, Lorenzo, who turns 16 months old today. "Finally we can be MOMS together. Love you boo! I got you."

Mathews, who is in his late 30s, proposed to Farley during a skydiving session in September 2012.

"Thank you for all your love and support and for being there for us throughout the years!" Farley wrote on her website. "We are extremely happy and cannot wait for our bundle of joy to arrive! Happy holidays from our growing family to yours!"
