Nicole ˜Snooki’ Polizzi gave birth to a baby boy early this morning. Along with her fiance Jionni LaValle, the Jersey Shore star welcomed Lorenzo Dominic LaValle to the world a bit before 3 AM at a New Jersey Hospital. Lorenzo is healthy at 6-pounds, 5-ounces.
Snooki took to her Twitter page this morning to announce the birth of her son and share her elation with fans.
I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD! she wrote.
MTV sent the happy family their congratulations in a statement.
We couldn’t be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy! the statement read. We look forward to Lorenzo’s first trip to the Jersey Shore and can’t wait to see his first animal print onesie.
Snooki announced her pregnancy and engagement to shocked fans back in March. The pint-sized Guidette, however, said she looked forward to starting a family and putting her hard-partying ways behind her. That still didn’t stop the 24-year-old from being part of season 5 of Jersey Shore, which is to air later this year. However, she quickly moved out of the Shore house and into her own abode next door, while still remaining part of the cast.
Snooki has also agreed to be part of Jersey Shore season 6, which will be filmed next summer. However, it is unclear what her participation will be.
