Snooki has made no secret that she's been hoping her first baby is a girl.

Well, the Jersey Shore mommy-to-be has found out the sex of the little one.

Did her wish come true?

Snooki, 24, and  fiancé Jionni LaValle, 25, are expecting a...boy!

But no worries, that doesn't mean she's not over the moon about the big news. "I thought it was going to be a girl," Snooki says in this week's issue of celeb tabloid In Touch. "I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls."

Even so, she adds, "It's still my baby, no matter what. I'm excited either way!"

Snooki and LaValle announced in March that they were engaged to be married and expecting their first bambino. They're waiting until after their son is born to say their I do's.

She told me exclusively earlier this month that LaValle was hoping for a boy, but ultimately she was fine either way.

"As long as it's healthy," she said, "that's all that matters."

And the pregnancy has gone much better than she could have ever imagined. "I don't even feel pregnant really," she said. "I'm just tired but pretty much. It's like I'm just growing a stomach."

She also said they were choosing between "normal names, not like when celebrities name their kids. It's going to be a nice traditional Italian name." She told In Touch they're choosing between Lorenzo and Jionni Jr.

Snooki also admitted she didn't think she'd be pregnant at age 24. "I would say it would have been another two years, but whatever," she said. "It's all good. I'm so excited."

And so are we.
