UPDATE: According to People, “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi does indeed have a meatball in the oven AND she’s engaged to the guido love of her life, Jionni LaValle. “I know he’s the one so I know the ring’s gonna come soon,” Snooki told People in January. MTV is also expected to work the 24-year-old reality star’s pregnancy into the storyline of her upcoming spin-off show with JWoww.
Could a “Jersey Shore” star have a lil bambino on the way?
Rumors are flying that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant with her first child, according to a report Wednesday in The New York Post.
Snooki, 24, is approximately three months along with her boyfriend Jionni LaValle’s baby. Snooki, who denied the rumors earlier this month, is expected to confirm the news via a splashy Us Weekly cover and hopes to capitalize on mommyhood to become “the next Kourtney Kardashian.”
The report also claims MTV is concerned about how Snooki’s mommy-to-be status will affect the shooting of Snooki’s spin-off with fellow “Jersey” girl, Jenny “JWoww” Farley. Shooting has just begun in New Jersey and the entire premise of the show was centered around Snooki’s party animal reputation.
“MTV went into crisis mode after they found out,” said a source to Page Six. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show.”
