There has been speculation for some time that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was pregnant for the second time, but the reality star had successfully avoided open discussion on the matter.
“Jionni and I are so excited to confirm that we are expecting our second child!” the reality starlet wrote. “Now knowing that our test results are good and our baby is healthy, we can finally talk about it!”
The 26-year-old revealed that her pregnancy with LaValle was planned because she wanted her children to be close in age.
"Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests, I'm due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!" Polizzi tells Us Weekly on Friday April 4.
When asked about her due date and wedding dates being so close together, Polizzi insists the show will go on and is clearly not worried about walking down the aisle with a nearly due pregnant belly or the baby possible coming on or around her wedding day.
"I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other, we've waited long enough and cannot wait." She tells Us Weekly.
"I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding," she adds. "So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!" She adds.
Snooki and Jionni, both 26, met during the filming of the popular MTV show ‘The Jersey Shore’ and have been engaged since March 2012. The couple share a son Lorenzo born in August of 2012.
