If you wish to dance in the beats of Pauly D (also known as DJ Pauley), you might want to learn about this American disc jockey’s former girlfriend, Amanda Markert. Amanda is the biological mother of Pauly’s six-year-old daughter Amabella Sophia Markert.

After the birth of Amabella, media and the paparazzi began following Amanda’s whereabouts due to her affair with Pauly. Before that, her romantic relationship with Pauley was a secret to the public. Amanda has 24,200 followers on Instagram and is a devout Christian whose favorite quote is, “Only one life, twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Amabella’s father Pauly D

Pauly D was born as Paul DelVecchio on July 5, 1980, in Providence, Rhode Island to Donna DiCarlo and Paul D. DelVecchio Sr. He became the media’s interest when he appeared as a housemate on MTV’s reality show Jersey Shore. Pauly has appeared in other reality TV shows like; The Pauly D Project, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Famously Single, Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars 11, and Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D and Vinny.

From 2010 to 2012, Pauly has been nominated to three Teen Choice Awards for Choice TV: Male Reality Star category. Among them, he won the 2011 and 2012 Teen Choice Awards. Pauly has released one album up until which includes the three singles; Night of My Life(2012), Back to Love featuringJay Sean(2013), and Silver & Gold featuring James Kaye(2019).

Amanda’s Husband and Wedding

According to the rumor, Amanda had a one-night stand with Pauly in Las Vegas. They didn’t have any romantic feelings for each other. Therefore their separate lives are not a surprise to the public. Any remaining connection between them is their daughter Amabella.

Amanda has never been in a close relationship with Pauly except for their meeting in Las Vegas. Before getting acquainted with Pauly, Amanda was already a mother of a son named Michael Markert, nicknamed as Mikey.

Amanda and Pauly fought for Amabella’s Custody

Pauly D immediately filed for full custody of Amabella after her birth. He felt that Amanda was an “unfit” mother because she was a waitress. He wanted to win the child’s custody by showing his prominence in the TV industry. But that didn’t work either. It was rumored that he tried Markert to opt for abortion when she was pregnant.

Finally, the court provided Amanda custody of Amabella. The legal battle made the relation between Markert and Pauly even sour. Despite being a biological father, Pauly didn’t get any rights to raise his daughter. 

How much is Amanda’s Net Worth?

Amanda’s professional career is always confidential to the public. Unlike Pauly, she is protective of her career and salary. But her net worth is around $70,000. As a former waitress, she raises her two kids as a single mom, who is the bravest thing anyone could do on their own. So, she might have enough income to fulfill her kids’ needs. 

Similarly, Amabella’s father, Pauly, has an estimated net worth of $3 million. His bulk of income comes from appearing in reality TV shows as well as DJing. He might have made an average salary of $26,850 yearly by DJing only.

Amanda once assaulted Mikey’s father

Amanda was arrested for assaulting her first child’s dad. LIke Amabella’s father, Mikey’s dad, also never married Amanda. He had no long-lasting relationship with Amanda. She misbehaved with Mikey’s father when she arrived home in a drunken state. She had gone out with her friends for drinks and returned dead drunk.

Amanda has full parental rights over her son Mikey. Moreover, she is no longer in touch with Mikey’s father anymore.

Amanda’s daughter-Amabella Sophia Markert

At the age of six, Amabella has already begun following in her father’s footsteps. Pauly revealed that he nicknamed his daughter as “mini-me” and said;

I look at her and I see myself, the way she acts, and everything. She’s a prank war champion too. She hides my phone.

Pauly is a proud father who always praises Amabella. When Us Weekly interviewed him, he said;

She knows I’m a DJ, 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 her Instagram account, Amanda wrote that her daughter Amabella wanted to donate her hair to the needy. For that reason, she took her to the salon and chopped her hair. She wrote; Read more about Gianni Jansen biography

I couldn’t wait to have a little daughter with long pretty hair…and then one day she came home from school and said, ‘Mommy I want to give my hair to someone else who needs it, just cut it up to my ears.’ At first, I thought she wasn’t serious. Then I thought the idea would pass. I tried talking her out of it. Brother heard us and made a comment about how she would look like a boy (which I had a talk with him later lol) but it didn’t bother her anyway. She wasn’t concerned with the sacrifice, she was motivated by love. If this is what God put in her heart to do, then that is what we will follow! Twelve inches and she looks cute as ever! I’m so proud of her!

Amabella’s kind heart proves that she is a considerate, caring, and unselfish little girl. She has made both her parents Amanda and Pauly proud.
