Once upon a time Jenni “JWoww” Farley was a hard-partying reality star hangin’ at the Jersey Shore. But now Jenni is a wife and mama with two adorable kiddos—and she’s totally dedicated to her family. Recently, JWoww opened up about her son’s developmental struggles for the season two premiere of MTV’s Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
In a tearful moment on the show, Jenni talked about how her toddler son Greyson isn’t yet talking. During a conversation with Greyson’s dad, Jenni’s husband Roger Matthews spoke about the little boy’s struggles to speak and how it affected her. Ever the sweet guy, Matthews put together a Mother’s Day video to cheer up his stressed-out wife.

To everyone that tuned into @jerseyshore last night and messaged, commented etc about @greysonmathews with similar stories or just showing love I cant thank you enough. As a mother, I will go to the moon and back for my kids… no question. I live my life differently because of them. To find out Greyson is “behind” or “delayed” crushed me… but only for a moment… that moment came from wanting to have “perfect children” and “how could this happen to me?”… but Grey is PERFECT and it CAN happen to anyone.. I saw that last night when the messages came in by the hundreds. I decided to share that side of my family on Jersey Shore because I want to help anyone going through what I’m going through… I’m sure people need support the way I’ve needed it. Greyson is still in therapy 3x a week… he’s doing a lot better. We also changed his diet and removed unnecessary preservatives. I’ve had almost every test done you can think of because I’ll never accept that this is best case for Grey… I’ll always think outside the box and do anything that will try and help him achieve nothing short of greatness… I don’t sleep much lol. He’s my world and I want to give him the best life… because he deserves it 💙💙 and to my son @greysonmathews.. if you ever see this in the future… you’re mommy might be a bit crazy, loud and dramatic but when it comes to you and your sister… I will fight for you two until my last breath… and continue to fight for you after death… your mommy will hold your hand and stand by your side for eternity 💙💖
After the premiere, Jenni Instagrammed a precious post of herself and Greyson, thanking all of the viewers who contacted her to show their love and support after watching the premiere. She also wrote about her life with her son, “As a mother, I will go to the moon and back for my kids…no question. I live my life differently because of them. To find out Greyson is ‘behind’ or ‘Delayed’ crushed me…but only for a moment…that moment came from wanting to have ‘perfect children’ and ‘how can this happen to me?’…but Grey is PERFECT and it CAN happen to anyone.”
The Jersey Shore star also noted that her son is in therapy three times a week and is doing much better. And—get ready to cry right now—Jenni also added a sweet sentiment directly to her son Greyson, “if you ever see this in the future…you’re [sic] mommy might be a bit crazy, loud and dramatic but when it comes to you and your sister…I will fight for you two until my last breath…and continue to fight for you after death…your mommy will hold your hand and stand by your side for eternity.”
