Ready to meet Snooki's baby Lorenzo?

Meet Snooki's baby Lorenzo! Check out the adorable photo of the infamous reality TV star and her beautiful baby boy. And learn why they chose baby name "Lorenzo Dominic."

I kind of want to run out and buy the next issue of People Magazine with Snooki and her newborn baby boy, Lorenzo, on the cover. Not necessarily because I need to know the ins and outs of her new life as a mom. But I’m curious about that Heidi Klum story (Seal seems irate that she’s allegedly seeing a man he’s referring to as “the help” before they’re legally divorced), and I’m always interested in what Pink‘s up to.

But check out Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 25, and baby Lorenzo on the cover.

I have to admit, I’m pleasantly not-surprised that Snooki’s really embracing motherhood. Granted, it’s not great that she’s practically sold herself and the baby to People (they’ve been running tons of articles on her), but now that Jersey Shore‘s been canceled, the girl’s gotta make a buck, I guess. Although…, for some unfathomable reason, the Snooki & JWOWW spinoff is in the midst of filming its second season.

“It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” Snooki tells the mag.

As Snooks and her fiancé Jionni LaValle, 26, reveal in this exclusive interview, the labour was 24 hours long, and they chose the name “Lorenzo” because Jionni knew a little boy with the name when he was growing up and just loved it. The name “Dominic” is a tribute to Snooki’s late uncle. “I did it for my dad,” she says.

And you know what? I have to admit part of me loves Snooki. It’s refreshing to see someone under five feet tall and voluptuous on magazine covers and living it up (even if we don’t necessarily agree with the lifestyle she’s portrayed on TV). As I’ve said before, I’ve heard her interviewed — and I don’t think she’s as dumb as she loves to let us think….
