From Us Magazine:
After weeks of rumors, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi confirms exclusively in the new Us Weekly that she is 15 weeks pregnant — and engaged to the father, beau of one and a half years Jionni LaValle.
And the Jersey Shore star and LaValle, both 24, know just what detractors are thinking, they tell Us.
“I have different priorities now,” reformed party girl Snooki says. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.” Adds LaValle: “We are not going to screw this up.”
The once pouf-haired star and LaValle discovered the news “right after New Year’s,” she said. Snooki’s first thought? “‘S–t, I’ve been drinking!’ I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.” she admits.
So, OK. I suppose there could be worse things. I suppose Snooki could have been, you know, seven-and-a-half months pregnant and drinking so heavily that she mistook the baby bump for pina colada overload, and chalking up her missed period to STD sterilization … things could be worse, and it could have been a lot longer that she “didn’t know” she was pregnant. Things could be way, way worse. The kid’s father could be Snooki’s ex, Emilio Masella. Shouldn’t we actually be thanking our lucky stars now? Yay, Snooki’s pregnant! Things could be worse.
