It seems pregnant Jersey Shore alum Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi isn’t into maternity wear – yet. The 24-year-old former party girl – who is expecting her first child with fiancé Jionni LaValle – also admits she is frightened her growing baby bump will become as large as Jessica Simpson‘s.
“I would die if I were her size,” Snooki tells Us Weekly. “She said she indulged in everything that she wanted [but] I’m trying to each healthy — fruits, lots of jelly and Italian ices. Nothing fattening at all.”
ALthough she may have made a controversial comment, Snooki was quick to do damage control on her Twitter page, telling the tabloids to “get over it with your ‘pregnant war’ articles” and personally paid homage to Jess, deeming her maternity figure a “hot ass bump.”
“I NEVER dissed Jessica Simpson you weirdo tabloids,” Nicole wrote.
On another note, the MTV star claims her unborn baby will be sporting a naturally bronzed skin tone, just like his or her parents.
“My baby’s gonna be naturally tan,” she says. “If you look at me and Jionni, we’re very dark, so luckily the baby will be very dark.”
Although Nicole is almost five months pregnant, she claims she isn’t into maternity clothes just yet.
“I’m so skinny that I can wear larges or extra larges,” she says. “I only just bumped up to a medium. I’m five months and you can’t really see anything. It’s gonna pop up in like a week.”
Although there has been public concern over Nicole’s carefree, club-hopping habits, it seems she has definitely put a pin in the partying for the sake of her unborn child.
“I guess [pregnancy] just made me more mature,” Polizzi, 24, tells reporters while promoting her new MTV show Snooki & JWoww in New York City.
It’s different because now I’m not drinking,” she notes. “I’m usually partying and going to clubs but pregnancy made me grow up a lot.”
