    Tequila shots and babies don't mix, and no one knows that better than Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.

    The Jersey Shore castmember and former party girl has traded crazy nights at Karma for sleepless nights with new baby Lorenzo, whom she welcomed with fiancé Jionni LaValle on Aug. 26.

    The couple appeared on the Today show Wednesday morning to talk about life since their little bambino was born and Snooki's complete transformation from party girl to doting mom:

    Get all the details on Lorenzo's birth!

    "It's crazy 'cause, you know me, I always wanted to have a good time," she said of her lifestyle makeover. "'Where's the next party? What am I going to do tonight?' And now it's just like, you know, 'I love my baby. What can we do with him?' It's just totally different."

    Snooki's fiancé also chimes in, insisting he's seen a change in his Seaside Heights gal:

    "She loves him," he gushes. "She's a great mom."

    But just because Mama Snooks has a little one at home doesn't mean the GTL-lovin' star has given up looking good. The pint-size celeb wore heels throughout her pregnancy and even admits she was red-carpet ready at the hospital, putting on makeup before Lorenzo's birth:

    "I even brought heels just in case," she confesses, "but my feet just blew up—I couldn't. I just want to look good when my baby first sees me!"

    So it's a new chapter for Snooki, but it's also the end of an era for Jersey Shore lovers. The MTV reality show is in its sixth and final season, and viewers who have grown accustomed to watching the cocktail-lovin' gal party hard get to see a whole new side of our favorite meatball.

    Aw! How cute is Snooki showing off her little meatball?!

    Still, Snooki insists the change couldn't come at a better time:

    "It's definitely bittersweet," she said of the end of Jersey Shore. "But you know, me being pregnant, filming the last season, it was just like the right time—when we're all growing up, going our separate ways…So I think this was the perfect time, but I'm definitely going to miss it."

    So will we! Congrats to both Nicole and Jionni on the birth of their beautiful baby!
