Snooki’s little meatball is 8 years old! Nicole Polizzi’s oldest child, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, celebrated his birthday on August 26, the Jersey Shore star shared in an Instagram update. 

“MY FIRST BORN IS 8. Jesus, take the wheel,” she wrote. 

Congratulations rolled in from many of Snooki’s followers, including Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, rapper Justina Valentine, and her MTV co-star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. But the sweetest message came from Snooki’s BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley. 

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley calls Snooki an ‘incredible’ mother 

Farley, 34, posted a tribute to Snooki on her own Instagram, where she sang the praises of the 32-year-old mom of three. 

“For the last 30 minutes, I have tried to type how incredible of a mother you are,” Farley captioned a photo of her and Snooki in the hospital shortly after Lorenzo’s birth. 

“I’m left sobbing at all the amazing memories I share with you,” the Snooki & JWoww star wrote. “You are beyond incredible and I am so honored to call you my best friend, and Lorenzo my godson. I can’t believe it’s been 8 years already… I love you both so much. I hope today was nothing short of perfect.”

Snooki can’t handle the love 

Her friend’s touching message hit Snooki right in the feels. 

“STAHPPPP I’m crying,” she replied. “We love you forever my best friend.”

Snooki’s fans were almost as emotional as she was. “I’m crying tooo!! You’re a great mom !!!” one commented. Another declared Snooki and JWoww “friendship goals.”

‘Jersey Shore’ Alum Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Doesn’t Like to Remember Meeting Husband Jionni LaValle — ‘I Cringe’

The Instagram exchange is proof that Snooki and Jwoww have the ultimate friendship. The two met in 2009 when they were both cast on Jersey Shore. And after the notorious season 1 incident where Polizzi was punched in the face at a bar, the two became fast friends. 

In a Q&A she shared on YouTube, Farley said that after the punch, “I realized [Nicole] was the love of my life, and we would be together forever because I loved her. I don’t think I would have [known] that love for her if that traumatic experience didn’t happen.”’

Since then, Snooki and JWoww have basically been inseparable. They had their own Jersey Shore spinoff and have been by each other’s sides as they started their families. (Farley has two children of her own.) Farley was Polizzi’s maid of honor when she married Jionni LaValle in 2014, while Polizzi was one of Farley’s bridesmaids at her 2015 to Roger Mathews. And of course, the reunited for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in 2018. While Polizzi has since quit the show, saying she wants to spend more time with her family, it seems like her and Farley’s friendship will definitely endure off-camera.
