It's not just Snooki and Jionni LaValle who are expecting a baby: it's the whole Jersey Shore family!
Vinny Guadagnino and Deena Cortese are certainly living a different lifestyle than Ms. Polizzi, but they couldn't be more excited for their pregnant pal. Vinny told E! News that although they "can laugh and have fun with each other, [this is] a real-deal pregnancy and this is real deal drama, so we are there for each other and her."
In fact, Vinny joked that he wants to turn the house's "smush room" into a baby room for Snooki and Jionni's future child. Deena can't wait to babysit, and promised to teach little LaVallle to navigate the New Jersey turnpike (once she's old enough, of course!).
Admittedly, Deena's going to miss spending time with "my meatball, my little partner in crime."
When Vinny reminded her that they weren't sure what the future holds, she explained that even if Snooki did come back, "clearly she is not going to drink if she is on the show," which is something Deena will miss.
The Jersey Shore finale airs Thursda at 10 p.m. on MTV, preceded by a one-hour Snooki-centric special featuring her first broadcast interview since announcing she was pregnant and engaged.
