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."

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.

“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 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?
