Just about a week ago we learned that MTV Jersey Shore star Nicole Snooki Polizzi welcomed to the world her firstborn child, a baby boy she and babydaddy Jionni LaValle decided to name Lorenzo Dominic. Altho we got a wee peek at the little dude when Snooki and son were discharged from the hospital, we get our real first look at the little guy as he makes his debut on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of People magazine. Click below to see Snooki and son’s first magazine cover together and check out a very cute photo of the newly expanded Polizzi-LaValle family from inside the mag.
Just six days after Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her fiancé Jionni LaValle welcomed their first child, Lorenzo Dominic, they opened their home to PEOPLE to help introduce him to the world. “It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” says Polizzi, 24, who is currently filming the second season of her MTV spin-off Snooki & JWOWW. It took more than 24 hours of labor, but the pint-sized reality star finally gave birth to her son on Aug. 26. Happily, she and LaValle say that choosing a moniker was much easier. “We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo,” says LaValle, 25, who adds that he was inspired by a child he knew from his hometown, where he and Polizzi now live with his parents. “She loved it.” The baby’s middle name, Dominic, is in memory of Polizzi’s uncle, who died. “I did it for my dad,” she says. Now, the happy couple are enjoying spending time with their family and of course, their “adorable” son. “When I got pregnant, everything changed,” says Polizzi, who will also appear on the final season of MTV’s Jersey Shore, premiering Oct. 4. “The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
Aww, you cannot deny that little Lorenzo is just the cutest little thing. Look at all that hair! He’s the cutest … and clearly, he had no interest whatsoever in waking up to pose for either of these photos. His parents may be happy to mug for the cameras but, nah, he ain’t interested. Altho I’m not a big Snooki fan (at all), I do wish her and her new family all the happiness in the world. Welcome to Earth, Lorenzo Dominic!
