According to reports from the New York Post, "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jionni LaValle. Though there has been no official confirmation of her impending motherhood, a source is reporting that the 24-year-old is approximately three months along and has shared the big news with "only her close friends and family." Recent photographs of Polizzi have shown her carrying large bags and purses, possibly to hide a growing baby bump.
Snooki, who is 4-foot-9 and comes in various shades of orange, is currently filming a "Jersey Shore" spinoff series that will focus on her friendship with Jenni "JWoww" Farley. The source stated that a pregnancy would obviously "greatly affect the creative direction of the show," since Snooki and JWoww are arguably best known for their excessive drinking and hard partying.
While we wait for the official word on the status of Snooki's womb, a number of other celebs have confirmed they're expecting or have recently received a visit from the stork.
