See Snooki's Gender Reveal Video! She's Having a...
Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) has let her fans be a part of her second pregnancy every step of the way, so it's not exactly shocking that the former Jersey Shore star would unveil her biggest surprise—whether she's having a boy or girl—in a YouTube video. Snooki has been pretty vocal about wanting another boy, a little brother for her son Lorenzo. So...what's she having? A girl!
The big gender reveal was actually a surprise to Snooki and son Lorenzo, too. Only her fiancé, Jionni, knew beforehand, she explained in the clip that was filmed in her home. "Jionni knows what we're having, and he put balloons in a bin for [me and Lorenzo], so we're going to find out what we're having right now, and we're so excited."
She then turned to Lorenzo—who was wearing a cute Big Brother t-shirt—and asked, "You ready? You're gonna have a sister or brother. No, you don't want to know? You want to be an only child? Well, you're not."
As she moved the bin, pink balloons came rushing out. "Oh, my goodness! We're having a girl! Yay!" she said in a not-so-excited tone. "Oh God, kill me! We're having a girl! Lorenzo, you're going to have a baby sister."
"There you have it, we're having a little girl, and I don't know how I feel about it. I'm terrified, but we're really, really excited!" she continued.
Snooki previously told Extra that she'd be happy whether she was having a girl or boy, as long as it was healthy. But..."Me and Jionni would like to have two boys," she spilled. "I'm not ready to have a miniature me. I don't need a diva telling me what to do. I'm not ready for that."
Hopefully, Snooki will get over her gender reveal blues (yes, that's really a thing!) before her little princess comes. (And pick out a cute baby girl name!) Most of us—whether we admit it to ourselves or not—have preconceived notions of what we want to have, and even play scenarios in our heads—whether it's the mother-son dance at his wedding, or picking out wedding gowns with your daughter.
It's okay to be a teensy bit disappointed—for a millisecond. But you have to move on and embrace the kid you do have brewing inside you. Because whether it's a boy or a girl, you are going to have a lifelong love affair with that little bundle of joy from its first breath to first word to his or first child, and far, far beyond. Enjoy every second of what you have and don't waste any time thinking about what you don't.
