With Snooki already having son Lorenzo, 19 months; JWOWW expecting a baby girl in July; and Pauly D having a daughter, who will be the next Jersey Shore alum to hear the pitter-patter of little feet? It looks like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi will beat all of her pals to the delivery room. That's right—she is pregnant with baby number two with fiancé Jionni LaValle. The pair is expecting their second child in the fall.
"Jionni and I are so excited to confirm that we are expecting our second child! Now knowing that our test results are good and our baby is healthy, we can finally talk about it," Polizzi wrote in an extended blog posted to her site Friday.
The couple, who've been engaged since March 2012, are proceeding with their wedding later this year as planned. "It will take the apocalypse to change that," she writes. "We planned to have a second child before our wedding, and will indeed still be getting married in the fall of 2014. We are a committed family that will raise our children to be the best they can be and give them the best life we can give them."
Congrats to Snooki on her new little meatball! I'm sure she and JWOWW are having a blast sharing pregnancy stories—and shopping!—together for their upcoming arrivals. I had a friend who was pregnant at the same time as me, and I know how nice it was to share stories and be able to ask questions ("Is this normal?" "Is this happening to you too?" "How did you deal with X, Y and Z?!"), so I'm glad that these BFFs will be able to share such an exciting time together.
