‘Jersey Shore’: Snooki pregnancy rumors intensify

Snooki: facing new rumors.

Mrs. Carter :Whaaaaa!

Could there be a “Jersey Shore” baby on the way? At this point in time, it’s still really too early to tell based on speculation.

Let’s focus for now on what we do know — rumors have been swirling since the start of the year that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jionni LaValle, with many photos serving to back up the story. We don’t take these sort of rumors lightly, mostly because some people tend to come up with them maliciously as a way to stir up drama.

However, there is some weight to these claims. Despite Snooki and her co-star Jenni “Jwoww” Farley denying the rumors to “Good Morning America,” the New York Post is claiming that she already has a deal worked out with a major celebrity magazine in order to exclusively reveal the news. This would explain the denial, though this in itself does not mean that anyone is expecting.

If these rumors do turn out to be true, it will be interesting to see what ultimately transpires when it comes to Snooki’s television career. It’s hard to see her drinking and hitting the clubs any longer, and since that is really the appeal of “Jersey Shore” it’s hard to see her as a part of it. Unfortunately for the “Shore,” Snooki has also been one of the stars since the beginning. Would they have to replace her, or would the show even go on in its current form? (If there ever is a “Snooki has a baby” spin-off, we suggest the first word of this article for a title.)

Do you think the rumors are true? Stay tuned, as we are going to have more updates on this story as they break.
