Who Is Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick’s Father? Her Relationship With Her Biological Dad Today

Angelina Pivarnick found out that her father is not her biological dad on a 2023 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. She finally learned the identity of her biological father and met him for the first time during the show’s season 7 premiere in February 2024. The reality star has since opened up about where their relationship stands today.

What Happened To Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick and Her Dad?

The TV personality revealed during season 6 that her mother had previously told her, “Your father might not be your father.” Although she had a “nonexistent” relationship with the man who she knew her dad, her mother’s comment pushed her to take a DNA test to get answers.

Angelina received the results in the wee hours of the morning, informing her that she shared 50 percent of her mother’s DNA – but not her father’s. The reality star quickly told her sister Amanda the news. Amanda said she had “no words” after learning the truth.

As she was processing the blindsiding news, Angelina posted a cryptic social media post that caught the attention of costar Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. He called her in an attempt to see if she was OK, but the former paramedic didn’t answer the phone calls. So, he showed up to her house unannounced where she gave him the lowdown.

After he asked how she felt about the situation, Angelina replied, “I always knew something was weird about our relationship and the way he would treat my other two sisters. But, like, I never knew why.”

“Blindsiding is an understatement. To find out the guy that I thought was my father is not my father, it’s f–king hurtful. It’s very hurtful. I don’t really trust people anymore,” she said in a confessional.

She further addressed the topic via Instagram on September 13, 2023, alongside a selfie of herself crying.

“These past three years haven’t been kind to me. When will my heart mend and heal. This year alone I found out things and I don’t even know how I’m still standing … Was lied to my whole life about who I am and where I came from.. my hearts broken… I don’t know how to fix it. I woke up this morning crying,” she wrote. “Unless u have dealt with the same thing you won’t truly know how it feels. My identity for years was a lie. This is my truth. My story and im allowed to speak the truth about what people have put me through.”

In addition to the paternity news, Angelina went through a nasty divorce with ex-husband Chris Larangeira in early 2022 that was finalized that May.

“If you feel out of place please take a dna test. I know it’s scary but you will know the truth at least. Ppl are trying to silence me for the pain they put me through for years. And it’s not going to happen,” the lengthy caption continued. “I need you all to pray for me as much as you could right now. I can’t do this much longer.”

Angelina concluded her message admitting that she needs “happiness and peace.” In order to achieve that, she wants friends who “don’t just call” to go out but will stay at her house and enjoy at-home activities.

After the MTV episode about Angelina’s DNA test aired, she gave fans an update on Instagram. “Family means everything to me! Unfortunately I never had that consistency I needed growing up as a child,” Ang wrote. “I always longed for a father figure that was stable and stayed and didn’t treat me differently. Now I know why things happened the way they did for all those years.”

She described the situation with the man she knew as her dad as “sad” and said it’s the reason why she finds it so hard to trust people. “When you keep filling your backpack up in life it gets too filled up and you walk around life with that pain,” she added. “I know there’s a lot of people out there going through similar situations.” She also opened up her DMs to those who might be dealing with similar issues.

Did Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick Meet Her Biological Dad?

After coming to terms with all of the information she learned, Angelina met up with her biological father in person. In December 2023, she told Life & Style exclusively that things didn’t go well when they got together.

“It wasn’t good,” Angelina shared. “I’ve been very vocal about it because I’m going to be. I don’t want to trash this man … but this is my truth. I would never say something that’s not true. Ask me to get ice cream. Ask me to go to the movies with you. No, that never happened. It’s more like, ‘Buy me a car. Buy me this.’ The first night I met him, he grabbed my Rolex and he was like, ‘Is that a Rolex?’ They have it [filmed]. And I was like, ‘Yeah, why?’ [He was like], ‘I always wanted a Rolex but I couldn’t afford it.’”

Although it appears that Angelina’s relationship with her biological father is strained, she seems to have kept up a relationship with some of her other biological family members. “I found out I have a half sister,” she revealed. “[My mom and sisters are] mad that I’m having a relationship with my new half sister. It’s sad. She has an autistic child, which I love so much, and she’s got another son, which I love. Those are my nephews.”

She also shared that she got to meet her aunt, grandmother and eight cousins. “I have a grandmother that’s 84 years old,” she dished. “She adopted eight children.”

Who Is ‘Jersey Shore’ Star Angelina’s Biological Dad?

Angelina’s biological dad is a man named Alfred William. He lives in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

The reality star learned her father’s identity in 2023. The revelation aired on the February 8, 2024, episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Angelina also found out about her biological grandmother, Madeline, biological aunt, Corrine and half sister, Michelle, who lives in Brooklyn.

The genealogist who found Alfred revealed that he was “off the grid” and said she couldn’t find a way to contact him. However, she was able to get contact information for Corrine. The women got in touch and Angelina met up with her biological aunt and Corrine’s daughter (Angelina’s biological cousin).

Angelina asked if Alfred knew about her and Corrine replied, “He never mentioned anything. I don’t think he knows.”

After they built a good rapport during their lunch meeting, the women called up Michelle to fill her in on what was happening. The resemblance between Michelle and Angelina was uncanny and Michelle ended up joining the ladies at lunch too.

“I love every part of this,” Angelina said after meeting her half sister. “It just feels like all the best feelings in the world.”

Michelle called up Alfred and he was completely shocked to learn that he had a daughter. “Oh s–t, she looks like me,” he realized when he saw a photo of Angelina. Alfred eventually met up with the group.

“It’s just disturbing that I didn’t know,” Alfred said. “I could’ve watched you grow and stuff like that. Been a part of your life. That’s what makes it difficult. You missed a lot of time with somebody you shouldn’t have missed time with if you would’ve known.”

Angelina found out that “the apple does not fall far from the tree” when Alfred revealed that he goes to the Jersey Shore “almost every weekend.” She also got emotional when Alfred asked if he could walk her down the aisle at her upcoming wedding to fiancé Vinny Tortorella.

However, there were some awkward moments when Alfred continuously referenced how wealthy he thought Angelina was. While they discussed Angelina’s journey on Jersey Shore, Alfred responded, “Nice. Making the big bucks!” The footage of him asking about Angelina’s Rolex also aired during the episode and showed Alfred commenting, “I wish I could afford a watch like that.”

What Is Jersey Shore’s Angelina’s Relationship With Her Biological Dad?

Despite these comments, Angelina was optimistic about building a relationship with her biological dad at first. “I don’t know him yet but I am a good judge of character,” she said after the first meeting. “I go with my instinct and intuition. Only time will tell after that. It’s been a great day for me. It just turned out to be an amazing day. I’m glad.”

The episode then flashed forward four months to reveal that Angelina was not in a good place. Before meeting up with her fellow cast members, she broke down crying in her car.

As she later told Life & Style (referenced above), she no longer has a relationship with Alfred. Viewers will see what happened between them as the rest of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation season 7 airs.
