Snooki’s Pregnancy Has Pauly D ‘Real Excited’

'I'll take care of it, spoil it and then when it's crying, give it back to Snooki,' Pauly jokes to MTV News about 'Jersey Shore' co-star's baby.

Now that Snooki has confirmed that she and Jionni LaValle are engaged and expecting their first baby together, it seems that she has a future babysitter in “Jersey Shore” co-star DJ Pauly D.

“Crazy! I’m real excited,” Pauly told MTV News about his pal’s impending motherhood. “You want to know why? I love babies! I love everything about them, when they’re not yours. So I’ll take care of it, spoil it and then when it’s crying, give it back to Snooki.”

It seems that Pauly isn’t the only one excited by the “Shore” crew’s first baby; the mama-to-be is also pretty stoked. “She’s excited,” he shared about Snooki. “She loves it. She’s always wanted kids. I want to be at the delivery room.”

While the baby’s daddy is most definitely Jionni, Pauly laughed that Snooki’s fling with Vinny had him worrying he might be a dad in the near future. “He’s counting the months,” Pauly joked about Vinny doing the conception math. “At first he was, but then he’s like, ‘It’s no way in the world, it’s no way. It’s gotta be Jionni’s. It’s gotta be.’ Aw, man, congratulations Vinny!” Pauly laughed.

All jokes aside, Snooki’s next chapter is also being embraced by the entire MTV family, as she not only wraps up this season of “Jersey Shore,” but also begins her spin-off with best girlfriend JWoww. “We wish Nicole a healthy and happy pregnancy and congratulate her on her engagement,” an MTV rep said in a statement. “We support her as she starts this new chapter of her life.”
