Although her BFF Snooki’s pregnancy may have been an, ahem, unexpected surprise, the same can’t be said for Jenni “JWoww” Farley. In fact, according to SallyAnn Salsano, the creator of both Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWoww, Jenni and fiancé Roger Matthews have been hoping for a baby for a while now.

After JWoww announced the pregnancy on Christmas Day, Salsano spoke exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment to express her happiness. “I am beyond excited for them,” she tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “I know how badly they wanted this.”

“They’ve talked and talked and dreamed about this,” Salsano continues. “They will for sure be great parents. I’m happy for the grandparents as well – they have been waiting.”

Recently, Salsano also recently weighed in on which Snooki & JWoww star will tie the knot with her respective fiancé first. “I always thought Jenni,” she told Wetpaint in October. “But now I’m not sure. They’re both taking it day by day. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but they tend to change their minds a lot.”

While the two of them hopefully figure it out in time for Season 4 of their self-titled spinoff, Salsano’s focused on her three (yep, three!) other reality series premiering in January: CMT’s Party Down South, Oxygen’s Tattoos After Dark and MTV’s Jerks With Cameras.

Sounds like all Snooki, JWoww and SallyAnn will have a lot to celebrate in the new year!
