When she was pregnant with her first child, the impossibly adorable Markie, Lauren Manzo Scalia had one major concern. In the video above, she told The Daily Dish: "I'm due February 26, and there's only 28 days in February ... So I'm kind of saying it's going to be the beginning of March. But the baby's going to be a Pisces, which I was freaking out over at first, because there's a couple Pisces I know that I can't stand."
Spoiler alert: Lauren and Vito's little girl was ultimately born on February 24, 2017, which means that she has a birthday coming right up! And even though Markie is, indeed, a Pisces, she and her mama are getting along just fine. OK, that's an understatement: If you follow Lauren on Instagram, you'll know that her daughter is the absolute love of her life.
In a February 20 Instagram post, the Manzo'd With Children daughter wrote: "My baby is gonna be 2 on Sunday and I can’t handle how much I love her." The accompanying picture showed Markie biting into a pastry, sweetly looking at the camera with her big brown eyes. Cash in on the cuteness, below:
If we know anything about the kind of grandmother that Caroline Manzo is, we'll bet she can't wait to shower Markie with birthday gifts on her special day.

"Life is good."
