‘Jersey Shore’ Star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Engaged To College Sweetheart Lauren Pesce

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is kissing his hard-partying days goodbye for good. The reality star is engaged to his long-time lady love.

The Situation Is Settling Down

The infamous ladies man and star of Jersey Shore is off the market. He revealed on social media on Thursday that he asked his college sweetheart Lauren Pesce to marry him, and she naturally said yes.

"GYM TAN WE'RE ENGAGED!!" he wrote, referencing one of the most beloved and well-known catchphrases from the popular show.

The 35-year-old included a photo of him and Pesce taking a romantic carousel ride. He also posted another shot of him getting down on one knee, with his now-fiance looking happily at him.


Pesce also shared the happy news on her own page, with a selfie and a close-up shot of the ring.

Sharing The Love

Sorrentino, who's currently starring on the reunion show Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, received tons of congratulatory messages from his fellow cast-members.

He mentioned on the most recent episode of the show that he'd be looking to marry Pesce some day.

"Love you two so much!!!!!" wrote Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi on Instagram.

Vinny Guadagnino, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Pauly "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro were all quick to share in the happy moment.

He and Pesce originally dated for four years during college but went their separate ways as he rose to fame on the original iteration of the hit show.

The Situation Is Under Construction

Sorrentino, whose sobriety has been a plot point on the rebooted reality show, revealed last year that Pesce stood by him during his darkest moments. The Situation had an ongoing issue with prescription drugs, which ultimately led to a 60-day rehab stint in 2012.

The reality star has been sober for more than two years. He and his longtime girlfriend previously took part in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars together, where their issues were dealt with on the public stage.

"It really helped us out and it still helps us out ... You ... learn how other people communicate and [that] they're coming from a different perception or a different view," he said of his time on the show.

Sorrentino is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to tax evasion in federal court at the beginning of the year. He's facing up to five years in prison and will be sentenced on June 20.

"I worked so hard to turn my life around and be the best person I can be," he said in an interview with PEOPLE.

Pesce was quick to praise her soon-to-be husband for all the good work he's done over the past few years.

"I've watched him work hard in silence for years, personally and professionally, without getting any recognition. He didn't do it for anyone to notice, he did it to better himself, his life and to create a healthy and positive future for us as a family," she posted on Instagram.
