The rumors are true: Snooki is 4 months pregnant and engaged to Jionni LaValle!

Rumors of the Jersey Shore star’s pregnancy popped back up last week, about a month after the young mom denied reports that she was expecting.

“I wanted to make sure the baby is OK,” Snooki explained to Us Weekly (via ABC News). “Things can go wrong, like a miscarriage. It was my business, and I wasn’t ready to tell,”

However, here is the bad news: Snooki won’t be joining Jersey Shore for Season 6.

“If anything, I’ll visit the Shore,” Snooki told Us. “I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting.”

Earlier this week, Snooki was spotted wearing a massive engagement ring, sparking up new rumors that she is engaged to her boyfriend of a year. Now the star has confirmed that she is engaged to Jionni. However, the pair told Us that they don’t plan to wed until after they have their baby.

As for the gender of the baby, the pair still don’t know what the baby will be, but they are split on the gender that they want.

“She wants a cheerleader, and I want an athlete,”  LaValle said. “If it’s a girl, she is not dating until she is 18.”

To which Snooks replied: “I’m letting her date. I started dating at 13.”

Albert Lee, the executive editor of Us Weekly, told Good Morning America how Snooki and Jionni found out that the reality star is pregnant.

“Snooki and Jionni were in Las Vegas for New Year’s Eve, they were partying it up, ringing in the new year, the week after that Snooki noticed she was a week late and she actually told us that she always carries a pregnancy test with her, and whenever she’s late, she does a test just to make sure,” Albert said.

“She said her first thought was that she freaked out because she did go out and party quite a bit on New Year’s Eve, but obviously those days are now over for her, she’s done with the booze, she’s done with the partying. She’s fine with putting all that on the back burner while she prepares for motherhood.”

Snooki is currently filming her new spin-off with JWOWW in Jersey City, NJ.
