He told Us Weekly, “I have always dreamed of proposing on 'Jersey Shore,' the show that introduced me to the world. I’m currently living the dream and proposed to my college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, amongst my best friends on the biggest reality show in the country. We are so proud and excited to share this chapter of our story with the world.”

Mike and Lauren dated for four years, breaking up ahead of him joining “Jersey Shore." They reconciled after the show ended in 2012.

Earlier this month, Lauren congratulated Mike on the premiere of “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” She wrote on Instagram, “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 added, “I am so proud of you for all you’ve overcome & the incredible man you are today. You inspire me everyday to be my best and I’m over the moon and filled with emotion that the world is finally able to see your true self at your core.”
