Snooki's Pregnancy: Is She Hoping For A Boy Or Girl?

Snooki and Jionni

Congrats to Jionni and Snooki, who are expecting a second child this fall.

As we reported yesterday morning, Nicole Polizzi is pregnant with baby #2, and we can't wish her enough mazels on her meatball bun in the oven! In a video she posted later in the afternoon -- filmed while two hairstylists worked on her red-hot extensions -- Snooki explained why she and her fiancé, Jionni LaValle, waited to confirm the news, which was leaked by the press in February: Naturally, the mom to one-year-old Lorenzo wanted to make sure her pregnancy was progressing smoothly before going public, and now that she's past the three-month mark, she's ecstatically shouting it from the rooftops.

Looks like the next big announcement will be the sex of the baby, which the couple will find out soon. "Me and Jionni would love Lorenzo to have a little brother," Nicole says in the video, though she stresses the most important thing is for the child to be healthy.

"I see little girls around and I can't deal with that diva-ness," she adds.

Hey, if she gets antsy for some estrogen, she can always spend QT with her "Snooki & JWOWW" BFF, Jenni Farley, and her daughter, who's due in July (and primed to be quite the newborn fashionista).

While in the midst of planning her wedding and moving into a new house, Nicole and Jionni will also need to add picking a baby name to their to-do list. "Obviously, we want something Italian," Nicole shares. "I wanna try and find a name like Lorenzo, but I gotta keep Googling."

Check out the video for Snooki's in-person pregnancy update, and let us know what you think she should name her nugget!
