Baby No. 2 has arrived!
E! News can confirm that Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has given birth to her second child with fiancé Jionni LaValle, a baby girl, today. "So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect," she tweeted Friday.
The reality star took to social media on numerous occasions to keep fans in the loop of her second pregnancy, sharing adorable baby bump photos with her soon-to-be two-year-old son Lorenzo and letting followers know that having a bun in the oven wasn't going to stop Snooki from keeping up with her fitness.
"No matter what happens in life, I will ALWAYS be a strong mother for my son and future daughter. My life is you," the soon-to-be mother of two captioned one photo, adding a heart emoji to the post.
Snooki announced her second pregnancy in April, revealing that she is due "in the fall" around the time of her wedding. As for whether little Lorenzo is excited to be a big brother? Snooki previously revealed that he may not quite understand the idea of having a sibling.
"I keep telling him the baby is coming and he smiles and says, 'The baby!'" she told E! News back in April.
But we know Snooki and Jionni's little girl already has a best friend waiting for her arrival. Snooks' BFF Jenni "JWoww" Farley and fiancé Roger Mathews welcomed daughter Meilani Alexandra Mathews in mid-July, but even JWoww couldn't deny that Snooks' second pregnancy took a toll on the little meatball.
"I hated my pregnancy. They say [baby girls] take your estrogen so your hormones are more depleted," she told us in August. "I don't know if that's true or not because I never had a boy, but I'm looking at Nicole—she loved the pregnancy with Lorenzo. This one, I'm scared of her. It's like The Exorcist." LOL!
