‘Jersey Shore’ surprise: Snooki’s having a boy!

It's now known.

Mrs. Carter: Hope they make blue leopard print.

The newest member of the “Jersey Shore” family is on the way, and now we have one more valuable piece of information.

As a part of a new cover story from In Touch Weekly, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi confirmed that she and Jionni LaValle are going to be having a baby boy. Was this what she was initially hoping for? Based on what she is saying now, not exactly:

“I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls … It’s still my baby, no matter what. I’m excited either way!” 

Snooki and Jionni first found out about the pregnancy at the beginning of the year, and since that point they have filmed a new spin-off series (premiering on MTV June 21) alongside another “Shore” star in Jenni “Jwoww” Farley. Snooki is also going to be a part of season 6 of the landmark series, though it has been pretty much confirmed at this point that she will not be living with her co-stars in the same booze-infested Seaside Heights house.

Now that we know the sex of the baby, are you already starting to imagine what sort of name Snooki is going to give the child? She could go traditional and name him Jionni Jr., but if we know Snooki her little Guido baby is going to have some crazy fabulous celebrity style name like Pickles or Crocodilly.
