The rumors are now confirmed: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is indeed pregnant, and she's also engaged to her boyfriend, Jionni LaValle. Her rep tells CNN, "Nicole is thrilled to finally be able to share her happy news with her fans.”
Snooki, 24, tells Us Weekly that she's 15 weeks along, having found out about the pregnancy after the New Year's holiday.
The reality star admits to the magazine that her initial thought was "'S***, I've been drinking!' I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy."
But for those who are concerned about how Snooki will reconcile being pregnant with her partying lifestyle, she says that she's prepared to make some changes.
"I have different priorities now," she says. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."
And Jionni LaValle, for that matter, is ready. No sooner than we post a little info on the 24-year-old aspiring educator does he confirm that he's ready for fatherhood, and marriage.
"We are not going to screw this up," he tells Us Weekly.
