She was hoping for a brood of mini-Snooki's running around under-heel in her home with fiancé Jionni LaValle, but "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is overjoyed that her bouncing bundle will wear blue. "Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!" Snooki told In Touch magazine in the new issue. The baby is due in September and the couple are narrowing down name choices, with the two leading contenders at the moment being Lorenzo or Jionni Jr.
Snooki, 24, told the magazine that she's very excited about the birth of her baby boy, but she admitted that she was hoping for a Jersey girl. "I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls," she said about her initial disappointment. "It's still my baby, no matter what. I'm excited either way!"
Snooki displays her growing bump on the cover the current issue of the supermarket tabloid, sharing that she's switched from her go-to craving for pickles to cold treats. "I love anything cold and juicy, like Italian ices," she said. In addition to her notoriously rabid sex drive cooling off for now, Snooki said she's also ready to leave some other childish things behind.
"I'm not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born," Snooki said. "Being a mom changes you."
Since the rumors first popped up earlier this year, Snooki has flashed the engagement ring she received from LaValle, who has appeared on "Jersey Shore" in the past. Snooki has been filming her spin-off with "Shore" bestie JWoww and an MTV spokesperson said in March that whatever shenanigans the two are up to have been going quite well. "Nicole and Jenni began filming last week and moved into their new digs with animal print furniture in tow ... Things are going great thus far."
Snooki and LaValle began dating a year and a half ago. According to the MTV star, he has plans to pursue a career in education as a teacher. He also works with kids as a wrestling coach.
