‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘Dancing with the Stars’ alum Snooki confirms pregnancy, wedding still on

Snooki -Mrs. Carter: Snooki has finally let the baby secret out.

There were rumors that surfaced earlier this year that the former “Jersey Shore” star was expecting her second child with Jionni LaValle, but she never confirmed it at that time. Why? Our feeling was that she wanted to wait and sell the story to a tabloid … and that’s where we are today. Snooki (pictured with her “Dancing with the Stars” partner Sasha Farber) confirmed the big news to Us Weekly in a new interview, and also went on to say that this second baby is something that she and her fiance have been planning for quite a long time:

“Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests … I’m due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!”

You did read that correctly: Snooki has no plans to delay her wedding any longer, and it will happen at some point regardless of what else is going on. As she said, she doesn’t want to stall on that any longer than she has already:

“I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other … We’ve waited long enough and cannot wait.”

While we’ve been a little hard on Snooki at times for not wanting to embrace her “Jersey Shore” fame and even going by “Nicole Polizzi” at times, we do give her a lot of credit for turning her life around and becoming someone who seems to be a doting mom who really cares for her family rather than someone who goes out to Seaside Heights, gets really wasted, and then gets into a dance party with a fern or falls of a table. She also does still have a show in “Snooki & JWoww,” but with JWoww also pregnant right now, it’s probably a very different sort of series than it once was.
