A leopard never changes its spots, especially when that leopard is named Snooki.

The 24-year-old new mom revealed to People magazine that while she was in labor for 26 hours (!), she did her make-up before lil’ Lorenzo popped into the world.

“Before I was pushing, I put on bronzer and false eyelashes,” Snooki said. “I wanted to look pretty for him!”

Snooki also revealed that she got an epidural: “I was nervous, because I don’t like pain and I didn’t know what to expect. So I got an epidural.”

Snooks and her fiance Jionni LaValle also revealed what it was like when she first saw Lorenzo.

“When the head was out, I was asking everyone if he looked cute,” Snooki said. “And he’s adorable.” That’s very true!

“Then they just threw him right on her stomach,” Jionni said. “I was crying and said, ‘I love you so much’,” Snooki added. “It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before.”

Snooki also mentioned that her mom (who adopted her when she was just a baby) was in the delivery room and she felt that watching the delivery was “more special for her.”

Little ‘Enzo, bringing joy and love to everyone’s life. We love him so much already! But we guess we’ll have to wait until Snooki & JWOWW Season 2 to see him in action.
