The 'Jersey Shore' star is all smiles as she holds her little boy who looks cute in an all-white attire.
Snooki's baby boy, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, made his debut on magazine cover. The proud mama posed with her bundle of joy on the front page of PEOPLE magazine's latest issue. She was grinning from ear to ear while holding her newborn who looked adorable wearing an all-white onesie and having his eyes closed.
"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," Snooki gushed. Talking about the name she and Jionni LaValle, her fiance explained, "We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo. She loved it." The new mom added Dominic in the middle to pay tribute to her uncle, "I did it for my dad."
Lorenzo is Snooki and Jionni's first child together. They currently live in his hometown with his parents. A sneak peek at Lorenzo's nursery room was revealed in a Twitter picture showing a black bassinet with leopard-print bedding and big letters spelling out the baby's name on the bare wall behind the crib.
Snooki gave birth on Sunday morning, August 26 at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston. She has since been gushing about her love for her son and embracing motherhood. "Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Lorenzo is even cuter today. #imsolucky. Night shift for Lorenzo! I love this job!!!!!" she tweeted in a series of messages.
