Say hello to the newest Guido in T'Town! Jersey Shore hellraiser Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi gave birth to a baby boy just before 3am on Sunday (26 August), at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey.
The tot, unlike his nickname-happy mum, has a fairly straightforward and traditional moniker. Snooki's baby with fiance Jionni LaValle is called Lorenzo Dominic LaValle and weighed in at 6 lbs, 5 oz. And the star's rep confirmed that, "Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!"
Snooki herself took to Twitter soon after to share her happy news, posting, "I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic ! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE'S MY WORLD!"
Awww, that's the new mum spirit. Snooki and Jionni had announced in March this year that they were expecting their first child together. In May, the reality TV star revealed that she would be having a boy.
Snooki did get more maternal after finding out that she was pregnant, though she still didn't ditch the leopard print heels while out and about. But we did get quotes like, "I guess [pregnancy] just made me more mature," from the 24-year-old who now has her very own spinoff with BFF Jennifer 'JWOWW' Farley, called Snooki & JWOWW, which, no surprises, will document the pregnancy. Snooki had added, "I'm usually partying and going to clubs, but pregnancy made me grow up a lot."
She'd also told People that she'd been afraid to tell her father she was pregnant. Luckily for her, her folks were super happy about the news.. "[My dad] is excited now. I think [my parents] are more excited than we are. I'm their only child and this is going to be their [first] grandchild."
