Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is the star of one of MTV’s most watched shows, “Jersey Shore”. The popular reality show features eight Italian, New Jersey natives who drink excessively and act out of control at their shared house in Seaside, New Jersey. While none of the stars could have predicted the shows popularity, they all seem to be unfazed by the cameras and in all seasons seem to have maintained the same crazy personas.
One of the biggest stars of the show, Snooki, 24 is currently 16 weeks pregnant with her new fiance, Jionni Lavalle who has been featured in the past two seasons of the show as Snooki’s boyfriend. Rumors of the pregnancy began circulating in January but it was not until she was three months pregnant that Nicole and Jionni would confirm that they were expecting. What does this mean?
Well, Snooki is currently filming a spin-off show with fellow cast member and BFF Jenni “J-Woww” Farley. It began filming right before her pregnancy was announced and MTV was thrown the curveball pretty late in the game. While producers were likely expecting to document the two party girls in their element; i.e. nightclubs and beach bars, they will have to find another angle for the new show.
Snooki has also revealed to US Weekly that it is unlikely she will return for the next season of Jersey Shore. She said she may visit the house, but that’s about it. She doesn’t want to be the girl who is pregnant in a club.
It at least seems as though she is serious about changing her party lifestyle to prepare for the arrival of her son or daughter. While they do not yet know the baby’s gender, Snooki and her fiance have already begun to think of baby names. Snooki said that if it is a boy it will probably be a “Jionni Jr. ” But they haven’t come up with any girl names yet. “We haven’t thought of girl names yet. I want something Italian and normal. Not like Blanket. Or Lamp”. The names they are looking for may be conventional, but if the baby is anything like its mother, it will certainly have a wild side! And of course, if it is a girl, Snooki vows “she will be pretty, popular, and wear animal prints.”
The paparazzi will likely follow the details and actions of her pregnancy as she becomes closer to the due date.
