Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio and his baby mama Amanda Markert continue to be at odds over their daughter Amabella. Last summer, the former Jersey Shore star hooked up with Amanda and although he reportedly knew of the pregnancy early on, he seemed to be under the impression that she had gotten an abortion. Then, over one year after their hook-up, it was revealed that they had a child together.
Now, after seeing his daughter just once, Pauly is aiming to be more involved in Amabella's life and will do whatever he can to make that happen.
"He has a court date set for Dec. 13 in hopes that the judge will mandate custody time," an insider told In Touch Weekly on December 4. "The custody battle has been going on ever since the news came out. He’s been trying to set up his second meeting, but Amanda’s attorney keeps denying him a visit. He just wants to see and spend time with his daughter. He keeps buying clothes to give her and it's taking so long, she probably won't even fit into them by the time he sees her."
Last month, In Touch spoke with Pauly, who had just seen his daughter for the first time a few weeks prior. "We’re working on a second visitation now. I want to do it for the holidays, so maybe I get her on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, something like that," Pauly told the mag. "I just want to give the baby the best life I can. I want to see her as much as I can."
