Although Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's previously denied reports that she's pregnant, The New York Post is claiming that the pint-sized reality star has been fibbing.
A similar rumor started at the beginning of the month, and the "Jersey Shore" star's rep told MTV that there was no truth to the gossip that Snooki and her boyfriend Jionni had a little one on the way.
On February 2, Snooki told "Good Morning America," “I definitely do want kids, but I’m not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I’m not.”
However, the Post is now citing anonymous sources who claim that the 24-year-old reality star is expecting, and is hoping to become the next Kourtney Kardashian (who gave birth to her son on her family's reality show, and is expecting her second baby, a little girl, this spring).
Snooki, who came to fame on "Jersey Shore," has a spin-off in the works with pal/co-star Jenni "JWoww" Farley focusing on the pair's lives and bond. A rep for MTV tells CNN that "Nicole and Jenni began filming last week and moved into their new digs with animal print furniture in tow. Things are going great thus far."
A rep for Snooks tells CNN that there's "no comment at this time" on the pregnancy rumors.
