CONGRATULATIONS, everybody! According to Snooki, you were totally right about something. (No, no, she's not actually a sack full of raccoons wearing a wig. The other thing.) The only Jersey Shore star to (knowingly) procreate has revealed the sex of her baby, and she's having a boy.
"Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!" Snooks told In Touch Weekly in a new cover story that promises to include all the things about Snooki's pregnancy you may or may not have already gleaned from her hyperactive Twitter account.
She craves Italian ices, not pickles! She's going to name the baby Lorenzo or Jionni Jr. (after her fiance, Jionni LaValle)! And, it seems, she'd actually been hoping for a little meatball.
"I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls," Snooki told InTouch. According to the mag, the 24-year-old got over her disappointment, though. Wee juiceheads are just as deserving of love. "It's still my baby, no matter what. I'm excited either way!" she told the magazine.
Snooki's pregancy is expected to be worked into her new spinoff series, Snooki & JWoww, which premières on MTV June 21 -- and the same goes for the upcoming season of Jersey Shore. That series starts filming its sixth season this summer, and while Snooki and her embiggening bump will be appearing on the show, you won't find her in her usual hangouts: pregnant Snooki won't be at the club and, according to Us Weekly, she won't be staying at the Jersey Shore house, either. Snooki and fiancé LaValle will be put up in a separate place from the rest of the cast. According to the mag's source, Mr. Obvious, the Jersey Shore party house is "certainly not comfortable for someone well into her pregnancy."
Snooki, who announced her pregnancy in March, has previously said that she's looking to leave behind her party-girl ways -- the habits that turned her into the puking-and-punching reality-TV star people know and love to arrest for public intoxication. And, as she told InTouch in her new cover story: "I'm not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born. Being a mom changes you."
