Snooki has confirmed she is pregnant with her second child.
The former Jersey Shore star made the announcement today after weeks of speculation that she was with child again. Snooki already has a 19-month-old son, Lorenzo, with her fiancé Jionni LaValle.
“Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests,” the 26-year-old told Us Weekly. “I’m due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!”
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, got engaged to Jionni in March 2012 and announced her pregnancy with Lorenzo around the same time. However her latest pregnancy is not going to get in the way of their wedding plans.
“I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other,” she added. “We’ve waited long enough and cannot wait.”
Snooki, who claims to have lost 42 pounds after giving birth to Lorenzo, is still exercising through her pregnancy. The Snooki & JWoww star revealed she still wants to look good on her wedding day.
“[I'm] still working out with my trainer, safely, obviously, and being more conscious of the bad foods I eat. I refuse to be in labour again for 27 hours, and being active definitely helps that,” she said. “I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding,” she adds. “So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!”
Snooki’s co-star Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley is also pregnant. She is expecting a baby girl with fiancé Roger Mathews in the summer.
“Jenni and I always talked about being pregnant together,” Snooki added. “I’m so excited to go through this experience with my best friend!”
