After bold-faced lying on national television swearing up and down that she is not pregnant, Jersey Shore star Nicole Snooki Polizzi is featured on the cover of the new issue of Us Weekly magazine proudly proclaiming officially that YES, she’s pregnant and engaged. You may recall that news of Snooki‘s pregnancy was revealed last week and just this week, she started wearing an engagement ring but thru it all remained totally silent about the rumors. It is clear now that Snooki sold her story to Us Weekly and had to lie in order to keep up the terms of her deal. In her coverstory interview, Snooki promises that she has “different priorities now” that she is pregs … which I really want to believe, for her baby’s sake. Hmmm.
Time to fist-pump for a little guido or guidette-to-be! After weeks of rumors, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi confirms exclusively in the new Us Weekly that she is 15 weeks pregnant — and engaged to the father, beau of one and a half years Jionni LaValle. And the Jersey Shore star and LaValle, both 24, know just what detractors are thinking, they tell Us. “I have different priorities now,” reformed party girl Snooki says. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.” Adds LaValle: “We are not going to screw this up.” The once pouf-haired star and LaValle discovered the news “right after New Year’s,” she said. Snooki’s first thought? “‘Shit, I’ve been drinking!’ I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.” she admits.
I have to say … I’m still having a bit of a tough time picturing Snooki as a mother but … her baby is on the way, like it or not. I know that unplanned pregnancies have been able to change people’s lives and I sincerely hope for her baby’s sake that Snooki really has changed her priorities. Where once her sole purpose for existing was to drink and party and smoosh with gorilla juice heads on national TV for money, she now has to focus on eating properly, keeping up with prenatal care and planning for the care of a totally infant child. Thank the stars above that nature has given Snooki 9 months to prepare for the arrival of her child cuz … well, if she is serious about becoming a good mother, she’s got a lot of good habits to learn. As always, I wish her all the best. Baby Snooki is on the way … and Heaven help that innocent little child ;)
