Snooki and Jionni are expecting a short ‘n’ tan little meatball (who may be named Lorenzo) in early September, and even though they may be expecting a little sooner than they had planned, they sound like they have their lives under control.

In an interview with the NY Post, Snooki says, “We’re really lucky.” Jionni adds, “We just kind of collided,” referring to the summer of 2010, when they first met. “I always wanted to have kids with him,” Snooki says, “but it just happened a little sooner than I thought … My initial reaction was ‘yay!’ and then, ‘Oh, crap, what’s going to happen with filming and stuff?’”

The six-months-pregnant star jokes, “Instead of life throwing me a curveball, it threw me a spermball.” But she says she could see herself building a Snooki empire similar to Jessica Simpson’s. “People think I’m an airhead and a drunk and dumb. But I’m a freaking genius,” she adds.

And you know what? We’re starting to agree with her.
