News broke earlier today that Snooki is allegedly pregnant, and now Fox News is claiming that the tiny Jersey Shore star is ready to go public with her pregnancy.

According to Fox News, Snooki will officially announce her pregnancy on the cover of Us Weekly. The only problem? Us Weekly hits the newsstands on Wednesday, and this week’s issue of Us contained no mention of Snooks being enceinte. That means that if Snooki is pregnant (and we really want to stress the “if”) and planning to go public to Us, the news will be a week old by the time it hits newsstands.

Oddly enough, Us is one of the only news outlets that isn't covering Snooki's reported pregnancy, hinting that the pregnancy rumors might be true and that Snooks will be announcing the news to Us. Since the magazine would be the official source of the "real" news, they wouldn't want to tease and spoil their big exclusive before they get to break it.

Fox News also notes that Snooki had been shopping around the exclusive to several magazines, meaning that if thisis all true, she is probably getting a heft pay day for her story.

We’ll have to keep our eyes peeled to see how the reality star’s pregnancy will play out in the next week.

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