Wait, This Is What Snooki Looked Like One Hour After Birth?!

When we saw this photo Snooki shared on Insta and read the caption, our jaws dropped.

"Aw only an hour old my nugget! She's now 4 months and a chunker! So in love with my princess."

As adorable as baby Giovanna is, Snooki almost upstages her by looking practically flawless herself only one hour after birth!

Snooki is a study in casual post-birth elegance. ("Oh, this whole look? Just something I pulled together while still recovering from birth. No big deal.")

Here's why the Jersey Shore star looks amazing:

  • Her flowing, tousled hair (no bed head here, apparently!)
  • Her seemingly bare face (which may have minimal make-up)
  • Her perfectly manicured nails with dark nail polish
  • Her smooth tanned legs and arms
  • Her bright pink-and-white "gown" (falling oh-so-casually off her shoulders, of course)


We give props to Snooki's make-up and style team for her effortless and natural look (because there has to be a team...right? We'd be less jealous.)

But what really makes this photo shine is the tender glow on Snooki and Giovanna's faces as mom and baby "cuddle" together. There is just so much love radiating between mom and baby -- and, ultimately, that's what makes this moment truly beautiful (make-up or not).

What was your post-birth moment like? Did you look as flawless as Snooki?
