Amabella Sophia Wiki
Amabella Sophia Markert is the only daughter of Pauly D. She is five years old and is the product of a one-night adventure between Pauly D and Amanda Markert, a former Atlantic City waitress.
In the first years of Amabella’s life, Pauly D’s relationship with Markert was very controversial. The two exchanged public blows, and Pauly D even accused Markert of extorting his daughter for fame. However, in recent years it seems that things have become more civilized since Pauly D frequently talks about spending time with his daughter in interviews. However, Markert appears to have primary custody of Amabella, which could be the reason he does not appear on the Jersey Shore restart.

She is 5 years old.
Amabella Sophia Mother Amanda
Amabella’s mother, Amanda, has an older son from a previous relationship. His name is Mikey. Although Amanda does not talk about Mikey’s father on her social networks, she frequently posts photos of Mikey.
Both Markert and Pauly D kept the news about Amabella’s birth a secret until she was born several days. He told Us Weekly at that time: “Sometimes in life things are not planned and may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing, that’s how I feel about having a daughter.” Although Pauly D indicated, in the first years of Amabella’s life, that he wanted exclusive primary custody, it is clear that Markert is the one who has Amabella’s primary custody. He frequently posts photos of Amabella and Mikey, writing on an Instagram, “very proud of my little lady!”
Pauly D Once Accused Markert of Trying to Exploit Their Daughter for Fame
In 2013, when Amabella was only five months old, Pauly D gave an interview with TMZ in which he said that Markert was “100 percent” exploiting their daughter for fame. “I want to give the baby the best life she ever had,” he said.
In response, Markert fired a series of tweets, pointing out Pauly D’s apparent failures as a mother and claiming that she had been financially caring for her daughter on her own. “I have been financially supporting Amabella SAME for the past five months,” he tweeted. “Apparently he wrote a check and sent it a few days ago just to show the media the copy … publicity stunt.”
She added, “I love my children more than anything in this world. The chaos he has created is a shame.” She then went on to claim that Pauly D had never contacted her to see the baby, and that she had never “denied him his rights as a father.”
In the years since, she’s deleted her Twitter, and it appears that she and Pauly D have reconciled enough to see one another once in a while.
Over the years, Pauly D has given interviews about his daughter, though he’s careful not to put pictures of her on his Instagram, and has been outspoken about his protectiveness over her. In an interview with Us Weekly, Pauly D said that his daughter was vaguely aware of his unusual lifestyle.
“She knows I’m a DJ,” he said. “She knows I have these huge crowds, and I am a big influence, and she knows what an influence is, she calls me famous when I go to the airport … people yell my name and she sees that. She is already aware and then so I tell her that I use that for good, to bring awareness to causes like this. To help prevent that kind of thing to prevent the bad. I let her know.”
In an interview with People, Pauly D said, “She’s 4 years old. She’s my life. She’s my princess. She’s a little mini-me. She wants to be a DJ — I got her a DJ room. She’s scratching records already. She’s so funny. She just wants to follow me around and do every single thing that I do.”
Amabella has left such a large impact on her father that she’s changed the way he dates, he says. To Entertainment Tonight, he explained, “Now, I’m even more picky when I pick women to actually meet her or my mother. Only certain ones will meet them. I put my standards up a lot higher now.”Amabella has left such a large impact on her father that she’s changed the way he dates, he says.
