What a relief! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi , who recently told fans she’s expecting her third child with husband Jionni LaValle , had quite a waiting game leading up to this latest pregnancy.
“Me and Jionni have been trying to have a baby since July, and now it’s finally happened,” the Jersey Shore star said in a YouTube video posted on Thursday, November 29. “And I was getting a little worried because it wasn’t happening as soon as I wanted it to. And everyone’s like, ‘Oh, you’re older now.’ Bitch, I’m 30! Relax!”
Polizzi, now 31, already has two kids with LaValle — son Lorenzo, 6, and daughter Giovanna, 4 — and they had been thinking about a third for about a year.
“We’ve been wanting another baby since Giovanna turned 3. It just wasn’t the right timing, you know?” Polizzi told viewers. “Obviously I would want to have kids every year, but it’s just not realistic. I wanted to be completely ready — and you’re never really ready for a baby — but for your third, you can plan when you wanna be ready, and I just wasn’t ready.”
Polizzi, now 31, announced the pregnancy on Instagram on November 22, and in the YouTube video, she revealed the due date is in June and she’s “super excited” for a summer baby.
She also took viewers along with her to a sonogram appointment, saying, “Everything is going smoothly and healthy. Definitely going to eating better and start working out more because I fell off a little bit, I’m not going to lie.”
In the video, Polizzi explained she and LaValle will host a gender reveal party for their family members, but they’ll find out the sex of the baby beforehand. “We don’t like that surprise s—t,” she explained.
However, she was excited to surprise Giovanna and Lorenzo with the news, saying she would tell them that night. “They’ve been waiting, they’ve been asking for another baby,” she revealed. “Hopefully it will calm them down because these two … they’re always attacking each other. And I want to just drink a bottle of wine, and now I can’t, so hopefully, this will settle them down … I really want to tell them. It’s going to be an amazing reaction, and then maybe they’ll get their crap together.”
Polizzi and LaValle have been married since November 2014.
