This just in: Snooki's pregnant! And engaged!
We've actually known about this for weeks, but Snook wanted to wait until she passed the 12-week mark (she's 15 weeks along) and score the obligatory tabloid cover deal before "revealing" to the riveted public that she is in fact pregnant.
Speaking of which, here's this week's Us!
The Jersey Shore star and fiance LaValle, both 24, know just what detractors are thinking, but that just makes them even more committed to do this right.
"I have such different priorities now," reformed party girl Snooki says. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."
Adds a dutiful Jionni LaValle: "We are not going to screw this up."
The once pouf-haired star and LaValle discovered the news "right after New Year's," Snooki said. Her first thought? "'S--t, I've been drinking!'"
Raise your hand if you're absolutely floored by that revelation.
"I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy," she admits. Fortunately, all is well ... save for the apocalypse in 5-6 months.
What should Snooki name her baby?
