The “Jersey Shore” star and fiancé Jionni LaValle, 25, welcomed their little bambino on Aug. 26 after 24 hours of labor. Snooki told the magazine that having a baby “is a different kind of love that I never felt before.”
The 24-year-old, known for her wild ways, is turning over a new leaf. “When I got pregnant, everything changed,” she said. “The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
The couple also explained how easy it was to pick a name for the little guy. Jionni was inspired by a child from his hometown. “We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo… she loved it,” he said. The baby’s middle name, Dominic, was Snooki’s late uncle’s name. “I did it for my dad,” she said.
Being a mom isn’t getting in the way of Polizzi’s career. She is currently filming the spin-off “Snooki & JWOWW” and will appear in the final season of “Jersey Shore,” premiering Oct. 4 on MTV.
