Ever since Snooki announced her pregnancy back in March, her Jersey Shore castmates (and Rihanna) have been lining up to volunteer for babysitting duties. But the first person Snooks has allowed to babysit Lorenzo LaValle comes from a different kind of family.

It’s Papa Snooki himself, her dad. On September 19, Snooki tweeted, “Catching up on my sleep today! My dad’s babysitting and IN LOVE.”

Papa Snooki was spotted helping Snooki leave the hospital two days after Lorenzo was born, and now it sounds like he’s been promoted to babysitter-in-chief. Even though most of her former roomies have met ‘Enzo, none of them have said anything about watching the peanut while Snooks and Jionni are out.

Even though friends like JWOWW are probably 100% trustworthy and caring, they haven’t exactly spent an extended period of time looking after little ones. Unlike Papa Snooks, that is, who was on diaper duty with a tiny Snooks once upon a time.

Do you think the Jersey Shore cast is allowed to babysit yet? And is Snooki being wise not to leave Lorenzo with anyone except her immediate family? Tell us what you think in the comments!

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
