Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi recently welcomed her first child, son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. Now you can meet him on the cover of People!
After more than 24 hours of labor, Snooki gave birth to Lorenzo August 26. Fortunately, she and fiance Jionni LaValle say that choosing a name was easier.
"We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo," says Jionni, inspired by a child he knew from his hometown. "She loved it."
The little guy's middle name, Dominic, is in memory of Polizzi's uncle (her father's brother), who passed away. "I did it for my dad," 24-year-old Snooki says.
Through it all, the future Mr. and Mrs. Jionni LaValle seem elated and content.
The couple can't say enough about their new baby, and their new life. With Jersey Shore canceled after this coming season, she'll have plenty of time for it.
"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," she says. "When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."
