Snooki is pregnant with her second child, the former Jersey Shore star has confirmed, following rumors that have been surfacing for some time now.

She and fiance Jionni LaValle are already parents to Lorenzo, 19 months.

"Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests," Nicole Polizzi, 26, told Us Weekly Friday.

"I'm due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!"

Even before Jionni got Snooki pregnant again, she had her hands full with Lorenzo and planning the duo's wedding, which she says won't be pushed back.

"I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love," she gushes to the celebrity gossip magazine. "We've waited long enough and cannot wait."

As for staying active and healthy during her second pregnancy?

Guido, Guidette and baby. What's not to love about Snooki's life these days?

Former Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has shared yet another sweet photo of her family on Twitter, and baby son Lorenzo couldn’t be any cuter.

“With my boys <3 idk why I always have vampire eyes. Hmmm,” she wrote.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is officially a mom.

The Jersey Shore star and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed their baby boy - 6-pound, 5-ounce Lorenzo Dominic LaValle - into the world this morning.

"The world just got another Guido!!!" a Polizzi rep told MTV, which confirmed the baby's arrival moments ago. "Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!"

Enzo was born at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J. around 3 a.m. Sunday, according to MTV, which congratulated Snooki and Jionni LaValle.

Snooki, Jionni LaValle Engaged!

"We couldn't be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy!" the network said in a statement. "We are looking forward to Lorenzo's first trip to the Jersey Shore and can't wait to see his first animal print onesie."

Jersey Shore will return for a sixth season this fall, and her spinoff Snooki & JWoww has also been picked up for a new season, though it's unclear the extent to which Enzo will appear on either, or whether he has an agent yet.

So there you go. Snooki is a mom. In charge of keeping a small human alive.

The Mayans predicted the world will end 12/21/12 ... turns out they missed by 118 days, not too bad considering the scope of human civilization.

In all seriousness, congratulations to Snooki and Jionni. Welcome Enzo!

UPDATE: A couple of Tweets from Snooki. Sounds like she's on Cloud 9:

Snooki and Jionni LaValle have revealed what they will name their baby boy.

No, it's not Jionni Jr., or Meatball, or Lil Guido, or Frankie G, or Vinny Jr.

It's Lorenzo!!

The news was accidentally spilled earlier today by her Jersey Shore co-stars while they were being interviewed by USA Today about the new season.

The 24-year-old and Jionni LaValle, who are engaged, announced they are expecting a boy in May, and Lorenzo was on her short list of names then.

Snooki has already had one baby shower, which was filmed for the MTV series. Another shower, the source said, is likely to happen early next month.

Snooki's due in September. Will she be a good mom?

Get ready for Snooki’s official engagement photo ... Twitter style!

Earlier today, the pregnant Jersey Shore star sent out the following picture, featuring her fiance Jionni LaValle - and her engagement bling, of course.

Snooki has been showing off her growing baby bump ever since she confirmed she is expecting, and isn’t disappointing with her maternity couture:

Snooki, Jionni LaValle Engaged!

The Snook continues to wear wild prints, the poof in her hair and sky high heels ... kind of like a Jersey-fied, less enormous version of Jessica Simpson.

She's currently filming her spin-off reality show with JWoww and practicing on baby dolls. She is slated to return for a sixth season of Jersey Shore.

Her pregnancy is going to be a major story line in the show this summer ... unless Snooki and The Situation are phased out, which has been rumored.

Either way, she and Jionni LaValle look happy! Lucky/poor guy!

Jersey Shore train wreck Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi shocked everyone, including herself, when she announced she was pregnant and engaged to Jionni LaValle.

So surprised that she may be putting her baby at risk?

”Snooki was not expecting to get pregnant at all, and before she found out she had been partying like crazy,” a friend reveals in a new Reality Weekly report.

Snooki Pregnancy Secrets

“She’s admitted that she was drinking a lot on New Year’s, but the truth is it’s way worse than she’s letting on," says the above magazine, which apparently exists.

"She was on a total binge, even for her ... it was one party after another.”

Jionni has always hated Snooki’s over-the-top antics, which is odd since he's been with SNOOKI for well over a year. Still, she’s "afraid to tell him her fears."

Moreover, with Jersey Shore Season 6 still a go this summer despite her baby news, she's worried about abstaining from alcohol for six whole months!

“She’s vowed not to drink, but Snooki is definitely tempted,” the source reveals. “Her friends are a little worried about her because it’s such a big change."

"It's not something she was really ready for. She’s having a hard time adjusting to being sober 24/7. She’s freaking out about that and the weight gain."

Jionni’s been trying to feed Snooki enough calories for a healthy baby, but she’s not eating. “Most of it hits the trash when he’s not looking,” the source says.

This girl might make The Situation's drug problem seem tame.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, ready to settle down? We'll believe it when we see it, but that's the rumor going around ever since she confirmed she's pregnant and engaged.

The man responsible for both those life changes: Jionni LaValle.

Needless to say, Snooki’s bundle of joy wasn’t exactly planned. But she and Jionni seem thrilled, and more than ready to begin life anew. The Jersey Shore star said:

“I’m 24. I’ve had all the fun I’m ever going to have in my life.”

Presumably she meant... as a single girl, with no kids?

Jionni LaValle and Snooki

No word on whether she will really be leaving Jersey Shore after this season, but in any case, congratulations to the pair as they begin their next chapter!

“I’m not thinking it may happen, I know,” she said last month, about marriage. “I know that I found the right guy... I’m just waiting for him to ask.”

Looks like Jionni stepped up in a big way.

Will Snooks be a good mom?

 

Will Snooki and Jionni last?

In light of the fact that Jionni LaValle got Snooki pregnant, this week's Jersey Shore seemed almost irrelevant ... and at the same time told us a lot.

Last night's show was filmed long before this bombshell, of course, but the buildup to Mike revealing his "master plan" had long been in the works.

Who were the winners and losers of this epic conflict?

Let's recap Jersey Shore, THG style, and find out!

Mike and Jionni

After The Situation tells Snooki's boyfriend that she cheated on him, the two shake hands. Mostly amicable, really. If only for a moment. Plus 11.

Even if Sitch's story is true, which it probably is, let's dace it, it's funny to watch Jionni and Snooki laugh about it as Mike expects drama. Plus 17.

For whatever reason, Mike decides he will go well every roommate what he did ... as if they care or he's doing it out of actual guilt. Minus 45.

When Vin porked Snook, he did not do this. Plus 8.

Snooki confronts The Situation, taking out aggression during a food fight. It's not as good as the Italy melee, but nevertheless, Plus 8.

The roommates watch as Snooki faces off against Sitch. Ever the protective figure, Pauly D tries to shield Deena from the fight. Plus 12.

In case you've been living under a rock for the past two weeks (and if you were in order to escape this news, who can blame you), Snooki is pregnant and engaged.

Jionni LaValle is responsible for both.

Dude dropped a stunning $55,000 on a princess-cut engagement ring for the Jersey Shore star, too. How the heck did he find that cash? Or figure out what to pick?

Jionni LaValle, Snooki Picture

The custom-built ring on an eternity band features 2-carat diamonds on the band and a 3.02-carat princess-cut diamond in the middle, totaling over 5 carats.

Ben Bekdas, jeweler at B&B Jewelry in Wayne, N.J., co-designed the ring with Snooki's fiancé, telling E! Online, "He wanted the very best for his honey!"

"Snooki was here a few months ago to pick up a birthday present from her father. She was dropping hints to Jionni and tried a couple of rings on."

"She picked out three different styles of rings. She liked the top of one and the side of another." Here's the one that the Snook will be wearing FOREVER:

Snooki Engagement Ring

Jionni LaValle came in by himself two months ago and designed the ring, which he picked up a few weeks ago. And as for the proposal itself ...

"They were at the W Hotel in Hoboken," Ben said. "Jionni got down on one knee on the balcony. Snooki had no idea she was getting a ring."

Aww. Think these two will last?

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!

Snooki's Pregnant!

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?
