"Unfortunately, like my first pregnancy, I decided to tell a select few people that we were expecting before the 3rd month mark, and it got leaked to certain media outlets," the 26-year-old reality star wrote. "Again, it has happened with my second. I just want to say HOW THRILLED we are on expecting our second child and we couldn't be any happier. But what sucks is how it's never our business to tell anymore. It's always certain media that decide to tell our wonderful news BEFORE we are ready."
Snooki acknowledged that while they "are on a reality show and share 98% of our lives" with fans, this was news they'd prefer to announce themselves. "It's not that we want to keep it a secret, but we want to share our business at the right time. We want to make sure our testing is good and when we feel, as parents, is right to say we are expecting, that's when we do so!" she said. "Be sure that when I'm expecting my third child, I will not tell a soul for the privacy and protection of my family."
