It's a Boy for Snooki!
Snooki will soon have a new man in her life. The "Jersey Shore" star is expecting a baby boy!
The reality TV star, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, has announced that she and her fiancé, Jionni LaValle, will be having a son when that little meatball arrives late this summer.
The news that she's having a boy actually caught Snooki off guard. Her personal hunch was that she was expecting a girl, so she was initially disappointed. “Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!” Snooki told In Touch. “I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls." However, she added: "It’s still my baby, no matter what. I’m excited either way!”
Snooki, whose "Jersey Shore" spin-off with her best pal Jenni 'JWOWW' Farley premieres June 21, was also kind enough to share details about her sex drive during pregnancy, telling the celeb mag: “Our sex life is hardly there! I just feel too icky and gross. I’m so not in the mood to do stuff.”
As for baby names, she says they've narrowed it down to two — Lorenzo and Jionni Jr. — which are both rather conservative choices for someone who goes by Snooki and has made a career out of being outrageous.
It seems pregnancy has mellowed out the one-time party animal. Another major change that is in the works for the star is that she reportedly won't be living in the "Jersey Shore" house when production resumes for the upcoming sixth this summer. Instead, she will be getting her own digs nearby so that she can get a little peace and quiet as she navigates her third trimester of pregnancy.
When Yahoo! TV caught up with the mom-to-be last month, she talked to us about her pregnancy cravings, saying she couldn't get enough of "fruits, jelly, Italian ices," noting: "Nothing fattening at all." She was also dealing with vivid pregnancy dreams, which were disrupting her from getting a good night's sleep. "I've had a lot of stabbing dreams," she said. "People are stabbing me in the elbow." Is it anyone she knows? "No, random [people]. I don't know where it comes from." She also talked about how she would outfit her baby if he turned out to be a boy. "I'm going to dress him like Pauly," she said, referring to her pal "Jersey Shore" castmate Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio.
Snooki's due date is in September.
