It’s been a huge rumour for weeks now. And we can stop wondering, stop disbelieving. She’s preggers. Snooki is preggers.
Yes, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, confirmed it to (allegedly) the highest bidder, Us Weekly Magazine. Snooki tells all in their latest issue. She’s officially 15 weeks pregnant and engaged to the baby’s father — whom Snooki’s been dating for a year and a half — Jionni LaValle.
Of course, the world is freaking out a little about this, since Snooki is known for her drunken, promiscuous, and impulsive ways on MTV’s Jersey Shore (a show that I shamelessly enjoy, just so you know…!)
But Snooki insists she’s changed her ways. “I have different priorities now,” she tells the mag. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”
“We are not going to screw this up,” Jionni says.
Snooki also tells Us that she was concerned when she first learned she was pregnant, since she’d just come off of some New Year’s partying. “I was worried,” she says. “It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.”
I know this news is disturbing to a lot of people, but I have hope. I’ve heard Snooki interviewed (on Cosmo radio), and she seemed much smarter than she presents herself on Jersey Shore. Though she, understandably, lied to the show’s hosts that she wasn’t pregnant, she insisted that her new spinoff show with BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley reveals a new and improved Snooki — who doesn’t drink because it’s not part of her healthy living plan.
Plus, although Snooki doesn’t seem to mind sharing her sexual escapades with her parents (particularly her father), she does seem to have a very close relationship with them. So there’s hope here. Best of luck to them!
