Just call him Uncle Jeff!
"He's doing well with it!" the new mother tells the Dish. "He was really fascinated by all the hair she had. She's a Greek girl—hairy back and everything. He's really falling into the role of 'guncle' very well!"
For Alianna's part, she's taking orders from her unofficial family member just fine. "Jeff was always very terrified that I was going to go into labor in his Mercedes. I think Alianna heard that, she came over the weekend," Jenni says of her daughter's June 29 birth.
Jeff has repaid Alianna's consideration generously—even though he's guilty of regifting. "He gave me a baby monitor and a co-sleeper that he had originally bought for his dog Oliver," Jenni says. "I'm loving that! Aliana uses it, it worked out wonderfully."
But will Jeff's ease as a "guncle" make him want to start his own family? Jenni isn't so sure, though she is optimistic. "Hopefully he will take on the role of father some day," Jenni says. "I'm learning it's the greatest thing you can do. We'll see if he goes down that road.
