Reality TV star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi has confirmed that she and fiance Jionni LaVelle are expecting their second child later this year, 19 months on from the birth of their first child, Lorenzo.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Us Magazine, the star said:
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!
Despite the fact that the new baby is set to arrive just as their planned wedding takes place, the couple have no plans to change their date, with Snooki saying:
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.[I'm] still working out with my trainer, safely, obviously, and being more conscious of the bad foods I eat. Irefuse to be in labor again for 27 hours, and being active definitely helps that.I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding. So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!
Snooki's co-star on Jersey Shore, Jenni 'JWoww' Farley, also confirmed that she was pregnant recently, and Snooki is said to be looking forward to experiencing things alongside her best friend.
