The reality star recently revealed that her nickname from the MTV series has reached a new generation: her kids. In fact, she recently shared on TikTok that her kids—sons Lorenzo, 10, and Angelo, 3, and daughter Giovanna, 7—with husband Jionni La Valle have begun referring to her by the name.
"When my kids start calling me SNOOKI," Nicole wrote at the top of the screen of the May 18 video, while she lip syncs, "Why is everyone acting weird towards me? No seriously."
Dedicated fans of the hit MTV series will immediately recognize that Nicole is in fact lip syncing to her own voice, as the sound is from an episode of Jersey Shore. And not only did people thing the situation itself was hilarious, they also loved Nicole's use of the sound.
One user wrote, alongside laughing crying emojis, "I'd pay to hear them call you snooki."
Another commented, "snooki using the snooki sound ... my life is complete."
Being a public figure and a mom does come with its challenges.
While Nicole and Jionni try to make sure their three children don't watch any Jersey Shore, sometimes their kids stumble upon old clips on TikTok—especially their eldest, Lorenzo. Thankfully, Snooki knows exactly what to say when this happens.
"'Honey, I'm an actress and it's not real'," she told E! News' Daily Pop of her response in September 2022. "'It's like a movie.'"
The reality star recently shared some sweet words to her children with a Mother's Day post on Instagram.
"Being your mommy is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me. I love you babies. Always," she captioned the post, which included adorable snaps of all her kids. "Happy Mother's Day to all the kickass mawmas out there!"
