The mother of the baby girl fathered by former "Jersey Shore" star Paul DelVecchio, aka Pauly D, is reportedly seeking a buyer for alleged text messages in which he asked her to terminate her pregnancy.

TMZ.com Thursday reported that Amanda Markert, who had 5-month-old Amabella Sophia after a one-night stand in Las Vegas last year, wants to sell media outlets messages in which celebrity DJ DelVecchio offers to pay for an abortion.

DelVecchio, 33, has not responded directly to the story, but Thursday tweeted, "Sometimes in life things aren't planned and they may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing."

In a statement incorporating that tweet, he added, "That is how I feel about having a daughter, I am looking forward to being a parent to her."

Markert, 25, a bottle-service waitress at The Pool After Dark at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, has not tweeted in response.

Markert is also the mother of a son, Michael Ethan, 5.
