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!

Jionni LaValle is Snooki's baby daddy and apparently her fiance too.

Despite the fact that the Jersey Shore star hasn't confirmed either life development, the cat's out of the bag that he got Snooki pregnant (a Jersey City baby store has already been tipped off) and she's engaged to Jionni LaValle (she's wearing a ring).

Anyway, here are a few things we know about the "lucky" guy ...

  • Snooki and Jionni LaValle
  • Snooki, Jionni LaValle
  • Not a big fame seeker. Emilio Masella or Jeff Miranda, he's not. No tabloid deals, revenge hook-ups, no interest in Jersey Shore. Pleasantly surprising.
  • Not a juicehead. Snooki even admits she "wasn't sure about him at first because he isn't the typical gorilla." Yes, this was a potential negative factor.
  • He gets along with her family. Jionni went on a family vacation with Snook to Disney World and a road trip to Pennsylvania, fitting in with the Polizzis.
  • He's studying to be a teacher. Seriously. Like his two older brothers, Jionni is studying to get his teaching degree. Contributing to society? Amazing.
  • He cooked her pickle pancakes, she Tweeted. That may beat a diamond ring. Case closed - time to wife this guy up, Snooks. Talk about a keeper.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and boyfriend Jionni LaValle are denying a recent round of reports suggesting that they broke up after a blowout bigger than Pauly D's hair. 

After what they went through in Italy, with public kooka dances, late night phone fights and general drunken stupidity on Jersey Shore, you'd think they were home free.

But now In Touch says it's over for real. So is it?

"It happened after her birthday party last weekend in Las Vegas. They're done!" says one of Snooki's so-called friends. "Snooki broke up with him because she is looking better than ever and wants to date someone famous."

Not the case, sayeth Snook. "NO, they [In Touch] always lie -_-," she Tweets.

Her publicist, Stacey Wechsler, also denied the breakup to E! News by saying:

"This is not true at all. The article quotes a friend who says the split happened at Polizzi's birthday party last weekend in Vegas. And it seems that the reality star's thin new frame is responsible for the parting, absolute no truth to both."

You may now collectively exhale. We sure as heck did.

Snooki and Jionni LaValle recently broke up.

Yet here they are back in Seaside, a few short weeks after he peaced out of Florence, looking happy as can be with JWoww and beau Roger Williams.

The cast returned to Jersey this week after spending the spring abroad. It didn't take long for Snooki and Jionni to reunite for a Garden State stroll:

Snooki, Jionni, JWoww, Roger

Fortunately for the photographers, the little people walked in front.

Are they officially back on? Were they ever off? Do you want them to be together? Do you care? Would you hit it? So many unanswered questions linger.

Jersey Shore returns for its Italian-style fourth season August 4. Filming for the following season is already underway, with no plans to replace the cast.

Freaking Snooki partied up a storm Saturday night in Las Vegas. No, it was like crazy out there. Even more so than a typical Tuesday night at Karma.

Hosting a bash to kick off spring break at LAX nightclub, VIP Snooki rocked the house and kicked it with boyfriend Jionni LaValle and her father Andy.

The Jersey Shore star posed with Jionni, who she's been dating since November, and a big inflatable crocodile reminiscent of her favorite stuffed toy:

  • What's the (Croc-a) Dilly?

FREAKING SNOOKI: Girl probably banked five figures for this too. That thought is almost as nauseating as when she talks about "getting it in" on Jersey Shore.

It's nice to see her happy with Jionni LaValle in all seriousness. He's clearly a good influence on her ... well, maybe. Honestly who the heck knows with Snooki.

Sorry, Emilio Masella. You missed your shot, dog. Maybe if you weren't a drunk skank with no job (quote courtesy JWoww), you'd still be with Snooki.

Instead, Jionni LaValle has stepped into the role - and they're in love!

Over the weekend, Snooki and Jionni LaValle took a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida to celebrate her upcoming birthday. Tagging along? Her dad!

Snooki and Jionni get wet and wild. And a little blurry.

Other men have come and gone from her life in rapid succession, but she seems to have learned from her mistakes and found a genuine one this time.

Under one of the pictures Snook Tweeted, she wrote, "Fallin in love at disney :)" Awww. Looks like the Princess of Poughkeepsie has found a Prince!

Here's hoping this gorilla juicehead is "The One."

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi started dating Jionni LaValle earlier this fall. We're happy, and a bit surprised to report they are going strong! It's been like a month!

The Jersey Shore star says she's done hunting for tan, juicehead gorillas, because she's found one worth sticking with. Jionni LaValle, you are a lucky man.

Faker!

After meeting her through mutual friends, Jionni, who is in school to get his teaching degree, has hit it off with Snook ever since. Here's a photo of them:

Sorry, Emilio Massella and Jeff Miranda. Jionni LaValle is smushin' Snooki.

A friend of Snooki’s says “he’s is a good kid, finishing school to become a teacher like his two older brothers. She talks about him all the time and sees him pretty damn often.” Best of all, Jionni is shy and prefers not to be in the spotlight.

“He doesn’t give a [expletive] about (fame)” Snooki reportedly stated last week at her Halloween party in Vegas. Hey, that would be a first. Snooki Tweeted today: “My boyfriend is amazing!! Miss you Jionni :)” All together now: Aww.

Guess we know why Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi shot down rumors of her own reality dating show. She doesn't need one. Meet Jionni LaValle!

LaValle joined Snook at New York City's Butter last month, but it wasn't until recently that things got serious. They've been together a long time ... weeks.

Taking her romance public at a weekend club gig, the orange reality star Twittered that LaValle has already gotten tight with the other man in her life: dad.

Sober Snooki

Jionni LaValle is a lucky, lucky man.

"My dad and boo are bonding," Polizzi, who recently split with Jeff Miranda, posted as the trio drove to the appearance. "Oh just another 3 hours of this."

Insiders say Jionni LaValle is a refreshing change from prior Snooki beaus, including Miranda that fame whore Emilio Masella. That's gotta be nice for her.

"Jionni is great. He is so quiet and isn't trying to be in the spotlight," says a friend, although because he's different, "She wasn't sure about him at first."

"She kept asking her friends what they thought of him. She was hesitant because he isn't the typical gorilla." Guess sometimes less is more with 'roids.
