Snooki and her fiancé, Jionni LaValle, are expecting a child in about six months. She’ll be on the cover of US Weekly, showing off her bump in a hot pink dress.
You know, in pregnancy, a woman’s breasts can get really big. I’m just saying.
Snooki and Jionni have been dating for a year and a half, after meeting at the Seaside Heights club Karma. Snooki has declared herself to be very happy – and lucky to have found Jionni. He’s been one of the quieter boyfriends she’s had, but you can find out a few fun details about him here.
Snooki has been open about anticipating a future with him and even proclaimed last summer on Good Morning America, “I’m so down for making guido babies with him!”
I can see it now … a chubby little baby, wearing a diaper, and bronzer and a blingy gold cross … his little fist pumping the air, or sucking back a bottle. Suddenly, it seems like a natural.
I have to admit, I was a bit surprised to hear about this pregnancy. I have not been following Snooki lately, but just assumed she was up to her usual drunken antics. She did admit that, after finding out she was pregnant, she was alarmed because she had been drinking without knowing she was pregnant. She and Jionni had been in Vegas, partying hard. She asserts now, though, that her priorities have changed. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”
At the moment Snooki is filming a “Jersey Shore” spinoff with her good friend JWOWW. Will her baby have a future in reality TV? Well, to answer that, I turned to “Confessions of a Guidette”, a memoir of sorts by Snooki herself. She’s pretty candid in this book, talking about her hair, her “look”, her pets … even making some pretty bizarre and startling confessions (“I will poop in a bush”).
At the end of the book, she shares some of her life goals, for instance: “Get married by 26 or 27. Get pregnant right away and have four or five guido/guidette babies, live in a nice house, and hopefully film it.”
Snooki is only 24, so she is ahead of schedule. The gal is an over-achiever. Who knew?
