Congratulations are in order for Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jionni LaValle.
The Jersey Shore alum, 26, and her fiancé, 26, are expecting their second child, Us reports.
The couple – who are already parents to 19-month-old son Lorenzo – have been trying to conceieve for a few months.
“Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests,” the reality star, 26, tells the mag, adding that they want their children to be close in age. “I’m due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!”
The expectant mama reveals the couple’s wedding won’t be pushed back due to her second pregnancy.
“I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other,” she says. “We’ve waited long enough and cannot wait.”
Now a true fitness buff, Snooki plans on staying active during her pregnancy.
“[I'm] still working out with my trainer, safely, obviously, and being more conscious of the bad foods I eat,” she says. “I refuse to be in labor again for 27 hours, and being active definitely helps that.”
She adds: “I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding. So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!”
This isn’t the only Jersey Shore baby on-the-way! Her Snooki & JWoww costar and best friend Jenni “JWoww” Farley is also expecting her first child – a girl – with fiancé Roger Mathews.
“Jenni and I always talked about being pregnant together,” Snooki shares. “I’m so excited to go through this experience with my best friend!”
The once notorious party girl recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about being transformed by motherhood.
“Motherhood has completely changed my life — from the way I view things to the way I live my life,” Snooki shared. “Becoming a mom has just made me realize, ‘Grow the hell up.’ And just looking at my son everyday made me realize he’s my life now and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
