Snooki is pregnant with her and boyfriend Jionni LaValle’s first child. It’s being reported that Snooki is 3-4 months along in her pregnancy.
So why hasn’t it been publicly announced from Snooki or her rep? Snooki is hoping to make big bucks from the announcement about her pregnancy. She has brokered a deal with US Weekly to announce the Snooki pregnancy news on the cover after she shopped the story to several other celebrity magazines. She wants to become the next Kourtney Kardashian.
Snooki’s real name, Nicole Polizzi lied when she was confronted earlier this month about being pregnant because she didn’t want to jinx the pregnancy before the 3rd month. TMZ reported about the Jersey Shore star already being pregnant when she went on an interview with Sirius/XM radio at the beginning of the month. Sources that are close to Snooki told TMZ, “Snooks WAS already pregnant when she went on Sirius/XM radio on February 1st and told everyone she was OUTRAGED by the suggestion that she had preggo belly.” TMZ says, “We’re told Snooki is taking the situation very seriously, especially the taboo about revealing the pregnancy before the 3rd month. Now, it seems Snooki has crossed the 3-month threshold and an official announcement could come any moment.”
When Star magazine was claiming Snooki was expecting, she lied and said to Opie and Anthony on February 1, “Does that mean they’re calling me fat? That means that I have a belly then.” In reality of things though, Snooki always dreamed of being a mother one day. She says, “I want two, a boy and a girl. I’m going to name them Isabella and Frankie.”
One source told New York Post, “MTV went into crisis mode after they found out. They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show. The untitled new show has just begun taping and focuses on the ladies’ relationship as friends and roommates and whatever adventures come their way.”
Snooki’s boyfriend, Jionni LaValle reported earlier this year that Snooki was trying on $500,000 engagement rings. Snooki admitted, “Jionni made me take it off. He was like, ‘Don’t even think about it.’ It was like this big and sparkly and amazing ring. I just want a big one.”
