If you've been following every detail about Snooki's life since Jersey Shore Season 1 (haven't we all?) then you will already know that yes, the reality TV star was adopted.

In August of 2011, Snooks opened up about her roots on the Johnjay and Rich radio show, saying, “I was adopted at six months from Chile. [My biological parents] gave me up for a reason and I honestly love my parents. I have no desire to actually find out [about my biological parents].”

That means Snooks was just four months older than her son Lorenzo, when she left her birth parents and went to her new home in upstate New York.  

Are you surprised to find out the new mama is from Chile, or did you already know? Let us know in the reaction buttons below.

Catch the next new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, November 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
