Fans of Jersey Shore will remember that Snooki was pregnant with her first baby during the last season of the show. The father was Jionni LaValle, a shore hookup who turned out to be her true love.
Snooki gave birth to their child, a son named Lorenzo Dominic, in August 2012. The couple’s daughter, Giovanna Marie, was born in September 2014. Snooki and LaValle married in November 2014.
She’s having a boy
On Thanksgiving Day, Snooki revealed that she was pregnant for a third time. She shared the big news in an Instagram post featuring her two kids holding up a sonogram.

A few weeks later, Snooki revealed her baby’s gender – and she did it in an adorable way. Her husband Jionni threw a baseball to her son Lorenzo. When he hit it, it would explode in either pink or blue dust to reveal the baby’s gender. After a little bit of coaching, Lorenzo hit the ball, and the dust revealed that Snooki is having a baby boy. That news likely made the mom-to-be pretty happy. She’d confessed she wanted another boy because they’re easier than girls.
“I don’t want any more girls. If I have a girl, I’m just going to be really upset about it,” she told E! News back in 2016.
Thanks to that same interview, we have an idea of what the new baby might be named. “We’re going to stick with Italian … I was thinking Rocco or Frankie. I like Dino. I want to stick with the unique Italian names.”
Snooki worried she might not be able to have more kids
Snooki and Jionni knew they wanted to grow their family since their daughter was a toddler, but it didn’t happen right away. In an episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, she’s even seen taking a pregnancy test that came back negative. It was only after several months of trying that she got pregnant.
“Me and Jionni have been trying to have a baby since July and now it’s finally happened,” she said in a YouTube video. “I was getting a little worried because it wasn’t happening as soon as I wanted it to.”
How she’s preparing for her new baby
In her pregnancy announcement video, Snooki said she was feeling pretty well prepared for this baby. But she did say she was planning to take some extra steps to stay healthy.
“[I’m] definitely going to start eating better, going to start working out more because I fell off a little bit,” she said.
She also said her two kids were ready to be big siblings. “They’ve been waiting. They’ve been asking for another baby,” she shared. “Hopefully it will calm them down because these two are always attacking each other and I just want to drink a bottle of wine. Now I can’t so hopefully this will settle them down and get excited.”
