Snooki has officially confirmed that she's pregnant and engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle. As soon as the news was broken out, some of her "Jersey Shore" co-stars expressed their excitement for the expectant parents and shared their belief that the pint-size reality star will be a great mother.
Both DJ Pauly D and Deena Cortese used their Twitter to send love to Snooki and Jionni. "Congrats To My Girl @snooki So Happy For Her And Jionni!! I Better Be The Godfather :) #UncleDJPaulyD," Pauly wrote, while Deena tweeted, "Congrats @snooki my Lil meatball!! Can't believe we're gonna have a little baby meatball running around soon.. Your gonna be a great mommy."
Sammi Giancola, meanwhile, told E! Online, "Snooki is going to be a fun parent." The 24-year-old reality star additionally revealed what she has in mind for the baby gifts. "If it's a boy maybe some hair gel," she said. "If it's a girl, maybe some baby bronzer. I think it's definitely going to be Jersey-themed."
Sammi also came to Snooki's defense against the haters. "It's not like she's 16 and pregnant," she pointed out. "She's doing her thing, she's living her life and I just think she's blessed. I can't wait to see a little guido or guidette running around. I just think it's going to be so exciting."
Snooki confirmed that she is expecting her first child with Jionni, whom she'd been dating for one and a half years, through the new issue of Us Weekly. To the publication, the 24-year-old reformed party girl revealed that she learned about her pregnancy "right after New Year's". She is currently 15 weeks along.
On what first came to her mind when discovering that she has a bun in the oven, Snooki recalled, "S**t, I've been drinking!" The TV personality, who's making a cameo in "The Three Stooges", went on to explain, "I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy."
After Us Weekly published news of her pregnancy and engagement, Snooki took to Twitter to say, "Happy to finally share the news with my fans." Her fiance also broke his silence as writing, "Thank You everyone!! Sorry about that wait but glad everyones happy!! Nicole and I are real excited!! Our baby is going to be #ShortnTan."
Jionni didn't stop only on expressing his excitement. He also tweeted a message to the haters. "For All u jealous, disrespectful haters out there, u see what u wana see on tv!" he wrote in a following tweet. "My fiance and I n JR are going to be so happy! #youllgeturs."
