Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Pilozzi gave birth to her first child with fiance Jionni LaValle, Lorenzo Dominic, on Aug. 26 and are ready to share the bundle of joy with the rest of the world.
“It's a different kind of love that I never felt before,” Snooki told People. A picture of her cradling Lorenzo is on the cover of this week’s issue.
Snooki was in labor for 24 hours and said that finding the right name for Lorenzo was a much easier ordeal. “We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo,” LaValle told People, reports The Hollywood Gossip. He said he was inspired by a child from his hometown and Snooki “loved it.”
Lorenzo’s middle name, Dominic, is in honor of Snooki’s late uncle. “I did it for my dad,” she said.
Snooki is currently dividing her time between filming the second season of Snooki & JWoww and spending time with the family and her “adorable” baby.
“When I got pregnant, everything changed,” Snooki added. “The partying is long gone. I'm a new person.”
MTV announced Lorenzo’s birth on Aug. 26. He was born at 3am and weighed in at 6lbs, 5oz. “The world just got another Guido!!!” Snooki’s rep told MTV, adding, “Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!"
Lorenzo was born just days before MTV announced that Jersey Shore will be ending after season six. On Thursday, MTV will air a special about the show and run a marathon before the Video Music Awards.
Jersey Shore’s last season will start on Oct. 4 at 10pm.
