Is “Jersey Shore” Snooki Having A Third Baby? A Look At Snooki’s Family
It’s hard to believe it’s been over six years since Jersey Shore last permeated the MTV airwaves. And there arguably wasn’t as big a star from the series than Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. With a reboot special (Jersey Shore Family Vacation) airing last April, the fascination with Snooki may continue, thanks to maintaining a pop culture presence.
We’ve seen Snooki write books and appear on The New Celebrity Apprentice in recent years. Yet, her greatest accomplishment has been raising a family. Is she about to have a third baby soon? Let’s find out.
Snooki started a family after Jersey Shore ended
You’ll find a lot of notable people who say starting a family was their greatest accomplishment in life. When you live the bat-crazy celebrity life Snooki once had, you need some stability and normalcy.
Fortunately, she had a lot of foresight about these things (and business) while Jersey Shore was still airing. While she managed to enjoy a $150,000 per episode payout during the later years of the show, she was already nurturing ways to make money beyond the series.
This led to a current net worth of close to $5 million. Nevertheless, money isn’t everything without having a family to keep you down to earth.
Eight months before Jersey Shore went off the air in December of 2012, she became engaged to her longtime boyfriend Joinni LaValle. What happened next was documented in the 2012 spinoff show, Snooki & Jwoww.
Having babies keeps you grounded
Snooki gave birth to her first child before Jersey Shore officially ended its run. The show had already filmed ahead, so the pregnancy wasn’t reflected there. Snooki & Jwoww, however, decided to chronicle her pregnancy and first experiences into motherhood.
Her first child was Lorenzo, born in August of 2012. Although many wondered if Snooki would still partake in her wild partying ways she was known for in the Jersey Shore franchise.
MTV executives even panicked at how to continue the spinoff series after Snooki briefly hid her pregnancy. Regardless, the fact that she became a mother on the spinoff show didn’t hurt the ratings. It just made her look all the more real rather than the arguable caricature of being a devil-may-care drinker.
Snooki & Jwoww chronicled further motherhood
For many Snooki fans, this reality show approach to becoming a mother was an appealing angle. It resulted in Snooki & Jwoww lasting until 2015. Before it ended, Snooki gave birth to a second child, a daughter named Giovanna. Born in September of 2014, Giovanna Marie LaValle already physically resembles her mom today.
During these first two pregnancies, Snooki wasn’t officially married to her partner, Jionni LaValle. They officially tied the knot two months after Giovanna was born.
Happily, this isn’t the end of Snooki’s family life. She just made an official announcement in November of this year.
Yes, Snooki is having a third baby!
On November 22, Snooki announced on her Instagram page she’s having a third child. In December, she announced on her YouTube channel that this child will be a boy.
Let’s give credit to Snooki for having a lot of smarts in maintaining a normal life over the years. Even she acknowledges in her YouTube channel introduction how much of a troublemaker she once was in the Jersey Shore era.
It just goes to prove how much starting a family can tame anyone’s flame. So far, the marriage between Snooki and Jionni LaValle also seems happy. Peruse her Instagram page to see how content they seem together lately.
