Snooki, Twit Pic

Looks like the self-described "pregnant whale" won't be pregnant for long. That's because sources confirm to E! news that Jersey Shore star Snooki is in labor at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ., with fiancé Jionni LaValle reportedly on hand to do the nervously pacing dad thing.

Representatives for Snooki are also confirming the reports to E! News and MTV News.

"Yes, Nicole has gone into labor," her reps says. "While we understand she has fans everywhere—hospitals now included—we ask that her privacy be respected moving forward. We'll all get to meet her Italian Stallion newborn soon enough."

No surprise, Twitter was abuzz today with word of the reality star's impending momdom. 

"Snooki is in labor y'all," tweeted one user. "My friend's mom works at St. Barnabas in Livingston, NJ and Snooki is there having her baby lol."

Still, about the only thing social media social butterfly Snooki had to tweet was the word "Fierce" with a link to some big cats. We're guessing she's in a fierce bout of labor.

No word yet on whether Snook's costar JWoww is really on hand to film the blessed birth of her little meatball Lorenzo, but we're sure E! News will happy to show some clips when they're available.
