Pauly D isn’t going to stop having one-night stands just because he recently fathered a child with one.

“Uh no,” he told Us Weekly when asked about his plans to put the brakes on having one-night stands.

But he will be careful in the future, emphasizing “protection" to the magazine.

Earlier this month, the former “Jersey Shore” star met his 6-month-old daughter, Amabella, for the first time, after learning he fathered the baby with a former fling he met in Las Vegas.

“I was nervous if [the baby] wasn’t going to like me,” said the DJ (whose real name is Pauly Delvecchio). “But the second I saw the baby, her eyes just lit up — it’s almost like she knew. It was amazing. I knew she was mine right off the bat too because she looks just like me.”

“[She] grabbed my hair! That’s the first thing she went for,” added Pauly, who is famous for his gelled coif. “And then she was biting my nose.”

Though Pauly is embracing fatherhood, the situation isn’t all smiles: The 33-year-old is battling baby mama Amanda Markert, a former Hooters waitress, for custody.

“That’s what we’re working out now,” he said. “I’m going to see [Amabella] as much as I possibly can, but there’s a process because of the way that everything happened. So it’s in the lawyer's hands, but I just want to give the baby the best life possible. I want to see her as much as I possibly can.”
