At first, uncharacteristically, Snooki decided she didn't want her birth televised, and kicked camera crews out of the delivery room. But she changed her mind, and lucky for the world, Jianni had captured it all on a camcorder. "I was in labor for 27 hours," she told Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, "but I didn't feel anything because I got the epidural."

Nicole Polizzi may have given birth to her "little meatball" back in August. But on January 29 we can all relive the moment on MTV's "Snooki & JWOWW," thanks to baby daddy Jionni filming Lorenzo as he was pushed into the world. While Snooki may not be the first woman to give birth in such a public forum, the list of those who have is actually shorter than you might think in this day of nothing-is-sacred. Let's revisit some of the most memorable onscreen births, shall we? -Beth Greenfield, Shine Staff
