When Snooki first announced her pregnancy to the world, she was met with mixed reactions, including some extremely harsh critics who said cruel things about how she’d be as a mother. Most people knew Snooki as the wild child of Jersey Shore, a crazy party girl who did what she wanted when she wanted and didn’t take responsibility.

But we knew there was so much more to her than that, and she proved the haters wrong by making positive choices and changes the second she found out that she was having a baby. She stopped drinking and smoking and made sure to get healthy and stay away from crazy clubs and people, and although she joined her roommates at the Shore for the show’s final season, she made the wise decision to get her own pregnancy pad next door where she’d be away from all the partying.

If that weren’t enough to convince you, Snooki Instagrammed this recent pic that proves she’s a great mom.

She’s sitting in the middle of her son Lorenzo’s amazing baby room and wrapping him up in a big hug. “True love. Forever,” she wrote as a caption. So adorable. And obviously, this is one of the many cute things they’ve done together, and she’s captured most of them in sweet pics!
