So you’ve heard that Snooki isn’t Italian by blood, but is she Spanish? 

The answer is: no. Snooki was originally born in Chile, which is a country where Spanish is spoken but is not actual Spain, this making Snooki technically Chilean.

However, Snooki, who was adopted by Italian American parents, says she identifies the most with Italian culture, and repeatedly said on Jersey Shore that she was looking to marry a nice Italian guy. It looks like she found that with fiance Jionni LaValle!

This means that Snooki’s son, Lorenzo LaValle, is actually half-Chilean and half-Italian.

Jersey Shore airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
