People magazine reports that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is engaged to her one year and a half boyfriend, Jionni Lavalle. The couple has decided to make their relationship official after the Jersey Shore star finally admitted that she is pregnant with her first child.
The 24-year-old reality star is going through a lot of changes this year. Although she tried to deny at first that she and her partner, Jionni Lavalle are expecting a child, Snooki eventually confessed that she is already in her third month of pregnancy.
Based on her previous declarations, Polizzi guessed that Lavalle was planning to offer her a ring, but she didn’t know when. The two have realized that they are made for each other, so there was no point in waiting any longer. Since Snooki is a big fan of extravagant jewelry, she advised Jionni to get a ring with a big stone; otherwise, she will not take it.
The couple was photographed during the weekend while Jionni was moving boxes in Polizzi’s house where the star is filming the “Jersey Shore” spinoff. The girls in the show will have to move all their animal print furniture in the house to take part at the spinoff. Snooki will be assisted by her friend, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, as her pregnancy progresses.
Although the reality star and her beau are incredibly happy about the news that they are going to become parents, there are several people on the show who are not so excited about Snooki’s pregnancy. Emilio Masella, who was involved in a relationship with the 24-year-old reality star, told reporters at TMX that he hopes Snooki loses the baby. He, later on, advised Jionni to get a paternity test suggesting that Vinny, another “Jersey Shore” cast member, might be the father.
Sources claim that the reality star wanted to hide the pregnancy in order to sign a deal with US Magazine. The publication was supposed to be the first to announce her pregnancy, but insiders brought it all into the open.
