The pint-size Jersey Shore star was snapped by paparazzi earlier today wearing what appears to be—ding, ding, ding!—her engagement ring from Jionni LaValle...
She and JWoww were spotted walking their two little white dogs to the story. Both ladies wore dark sunglasses.
LaValle apparently turned down offers from various jewelers for a free ring in exchange for publicity, according to a source. "He was adamant that he did this on his own," the source said.
What still hasnt really seen yet is Ms. Snooki's baby bump. Since news broke last week that she was expecting her and LaValle's first child, she has been seen outside in loose clothing.
Behind closed doors is another story.
"The bump is showing a little," our insider said. "Snooki looks so cute and so happy."
And so far no complaints of morning sickness or reports of wacky cravings.
"She said she's feeling fine," the source said. "Everything is good."
