After his Jersey Shore fiancée Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, confirmed her pregnancy, father-to-be Jionni LaValle, 24, wasted no time hopping onto Twitter to share the couple’s exciting news with his nearly 120,000 followers.
“Thank You everyone!! Sorry about that wait but glad everyones happy!! Nicole and I are real excited!! Our baby is going to be #ShortnTan,” he tweeted on Wednesday, making reference to the months of speculation that Snooki was indeed pregnant.
Starring in a few dramatic episodes of the Jersey Shore himself, Jionni – who began dating Snooki approximately a year and a half ago – also made note of the public lashings the two are receiving in the media.
“For All u jealous, disrespectful haters out there, u see what u wana see on tv! My fiancé and I n JR are going to be so happy!” he wrote.
One person is definitely happy for the newly engaged couple. Snooki’s Jersey Shore cast mate Pauly D recently tweeted a heartfelt congratulations early Wednesday.
“Congrats To My Girl @snooki So Happy For Her And Jionni!! I Better Be The Godfather #UncleDJPaulyD”
