Lauren Pesce is standing by her man.

She took to Instagram on Friday to react to Mike’s recent
prison sentencing.

“Thank you for all of your messages of love &
support. We are happy to put an end to this chapter and excited to move forward
in our future,” Lauren wrote.

“We are blessed to have our health and the
outpouring of support from family, friends & fans. We love you,” he
concluded.

Mike
was sentenced on Friday to eight months in prison for tax fraud, Access can
confirm. He was also ordered to complete 500 hours of community service.
Sorrentino’s brother Marc, was sentenced to two years in prison. The two
pleaded guilty in January 2018, after they were charged in 2014 with failing to
pay the correct taxes on nearly $9 million of income from 2010-2012.

After the sentencing, the reality star took to social media
to share his feelings.

“We are very happy to put this behind us. Thank
you So much for all the Love & Support,” he wrote.

Mike’s rep also
shared with Access that The Situation is still looking forward to his future
with Lauren.

“Mike accepts the court’s decision and looks forward to marrying his
college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, and moving forward together after serving his
sentence,” his rep told Access in a statement.

“He anticipates to come back
stronger as an individual and couple in the same healthy mindset that he has
had for the last 3 years,” the statement continues. “He and Lauren
are both so thankful for everyone’s support and prayers!”

Earlier in the month, Mike and
Lauren celebrated their love with a “wedding shower.”

They had a gorgeous yellow and
white flower wall, and the couple color-coordinated their looks with blue,
white and yellow outfits.

“Our Italian Wedding
Shower,” Lauren wrote on Instagram. “#theHituation
#GymTanLaurens.”

Their “Jersey Shore” friends, Snooki, JWoww, Vinny
and Angelina attended the fete, sharing their support for the couple.
