Snooki Tweets About Motherhood: 'Being a Mom is an Amazing Feeling'
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is officially a mom, and in true MTV reality fashion, the Jersey Shore guidette is keeping her fans updated every step of the way.
Shortly after giving birth to Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, Snooki’s first child with fiancé Jionni LaValle, the pint-sized star tweeted, “I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD!”
Shortly thereafter, Snooks wrote, “Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad.”
After weeks of speculation, Snooki officially announced her pregnancy and engagement with a splashy Us Weekly cover story in March. Her first trimester was documented on MTV’s Jersey Shore spinoff Snooki & JWOWW, but she also went on to film the sixth season of Shore this past summer. Jersey Shore's new season is set to premiere Thursday, Oct. 4 at 10 p.m.
Snooki’s cast members and series creator SallyAnn Salsano also reached out to their co-star to offer their congratulations. And while the entire cast made mention of Snooki’s new addition on Twitter, she only retweeted Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, referring to her best friend as “auntie.”
Apparently motherhood isn’t the only thing that Snooki is enjoying these days. The Marlboro, New York native is also happy to be indulging in the more simple pleasures: post-pregnancy food.
“I’m finally able to eat eggs again!” she wrote. “While I was pregnant I couldn’t even smell them! Now I’m killing it with egg whites!!! #YUM”
