MTV’s Favorite Meatball Had a Meatball: Snooki’s Baby Has Arrived
It finally happened: Snooki had her baby. Soooo… now what?
Well, Bettys, it finally happened: Snooki had her baby. The newest little meatball of the Jersey Shore family came into the world at 3am on Sunday morning at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, MTV officially confirmed. As planned, Snooki and her fiancé, Jionni LaValle, named the little boy Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. Mothers of the world? Now might be a good time to lock up your daughters. Just sayin’.
Naturally, Snooki took to Twitter pretty much immediately to announce the news, writing first at 8:30 Sunday morning:
And then slightly later at 11:26am:
Congratulations to the happy family!… Although to be honest, I’m still a little skeptical, especially as Snooki and JWoww’s oh-so-creatively named Jersey Shore spin-off series, Snooki and JWoww (really, MTV? You couldn’t get ANY more inventive than that?) has been confirmed for a second season. I can’t help but think that it’s going to end up the unholy lovechild of Teen Mom and Jersey Shore. Agh. Shudder.
Also, does anyone else feel kind of bad for poor Jionni? I mean, I know he knew what he was getting into when he first started dating Snooki (or at least, he should have—if he didn’t, that’s an enormous red flag right there); but would you really want to go about your first year of family life under the lens of MTV’s cameras? Is he even going to be allowed to live in Snooki and JWoww’s house in Jersey City? Or will they come up with some sort of alternate housing arrangement, like they did for season six of Jersey Shore? Given that the whole premise of Snooki and JWoww is based around their being roommates, this seems sort of unlikely, but I suppose we’ll see whenever the second season goes into production.
In any event, Snooki is now free and clear to have the dream wedding she apparently wants—as long as she can work it out around the whole being-a-new-mom thing. For those of you who are REALLY curious, you’ll be able to go back in time and witness the final stages of Snooki’s pregnancy when season six of Jersey Shore begins airing in October.
Well, congratulations to the new parents! Here’s to the many sleepless nights ahead! (Or something!)
