Mom-to-Be Snooki Talks Italian Ice Cravings, Bizarre Pregnancy Dreams, and How She’s Not Going to Be Like Jessica Simpson
Jersey Shore" party girl is a surprisingly normal pregnant person … well, one that plans to dress her baby "all crazy blinged out."Now that America has had time to process the fact that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is indeed pregnant, here's another bombshell -- the "
Five months along, the pint-sized reality TV star, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Jionni LaValle, is still wearing regular clothing. "Oh, I don't wear maternity clothes," Polizzi told Yahoo! TV Thursday at a press event in New York City for her upcoming MTV spin-off show "Snooki & JWOWW." She proclaims: "I'm so tiny that I can wear larges or extra larges [when the time comes]. I just went to a medium." As for her still-petite stature, "Everyone's different," Polizzi shrugged. "I could pop in like a week."
When a reporter suggests that, when she does "pop," she could look like mom-to-be Jessica Simpson, whose seemingly endless pregnancy has caused a lot of chatter, Polizzi replied: "I hope not. I don't want to be her size. She says she's eating everything. Me, I'm actually eating healthy." So what are her pregnancy cravings? "Fruits, jelly, Italian ices," she listed. "Nothing fattening at all." How about pickle juice? "I really don't like pickles as much as everybody thinks I do," she confided.
Although her appetite is in check, she's had many a restless night due to vivid pregnancy dreams -- make that nightmares. "Yeah, I've had a lot of stabbing dreams, like people are stabbing me in the elbow," she said. "I'm just standing there and people are [doing a stabbing motion] to my elbows." Is it anyone she knows? "No, random [people]. I don't know where it comes from."
Something she does know? How she's going to dress her baby after he or she debuts this summer. "If it's a girl, it will be animal print and, ya know -- all crazy blinged out. If it's a boy, I'm going to dress him like Pauly," she said, motioning to her pal and "Jersey Shore" castmate Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio, who was seated next to her wearing a blue-and- white checked button-down shirt and white high- tops with some blinding jeweled accessories on either wrist.

And rest assured all those who are worried, the baby won't be tanning -- bottle, spray, or booth -- any time soon. "Yeah, I wouldn't do that to my baby," Polizzi, who has her own line of tanning products, said. "I mean, my baby is going to be naturally tan. Look at me -- and Jionni is very dark," she says of her child's dad. "So my baby is going to have no problem being tan."
Polizzi's pregnancy will be a main plot in her reality spin-off with BFF Jenni 'JWOWW' Farley, which premieres June 21 on MTV. "You see my first trimester of pregnancy, so a lot of me annoying Jenni and just being a bitch," she teased. Though Farley herself didn't see it that way, adding: "To be honest, she thinks she thought she was [hormonal], but I'd take this over 'hungover Nicole' any day. This was like smooth sailing."
