“Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is a mom again!
On Thursday morning, Snooki gave birth to a baby boy named Angelo James, her third child with husband Jionni LaValle, People magazine reports.
Their bundle of joy, who weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz., will be joining Nicole and Jionni’s other two kids, Giovanna Marie, 4, and Lorenzo Dominic, 6.
In a statement, she said, “So thrilled to welcome baby Angelo into our little family! He is so sweet and a spitting image of Lorenzo as a baby. Jionni and I can’t wait to see how being outnumbered turns out!”
His name came as no surprise since she announced what they would name him in April. At the time, she showed off some baby gifts that she had received, which had the name “Angelo” printed on them. She shared on Instagram, “Look what Deena got me! So you guys know the name, it’s gonna be Angelo.”
Snooki was more than ready for her son’s arrival. On Sunday, she posted a Boomerang, writing on Instagram, “Come out you little sh*t.”
Earlier this month, Nicole admitted that she was “annoyed” that she would have to wait two more weeks to meet him. On an episode of her podcast “It’s Happening with Snooki and Joey,” the 31-year-old said, “So I just got back from the doctor’s office. I’m so annoyed because I’ve been feeling cramps and I swear the baby’s coming out, and then I went today and he said like another two weeks or so. I’m annoyed that I have to spend another couple weeks feeling this miserable.”
In the podcast, she noted that they were hoping that Angelo would be born on May 26.
Nicole’s family celebrated baby Angelo’s arrival at a sprinkle a few weeks ago. She posted a pic, saying, “Had such an amazing sprinkle! My family did amazing spoiling baby Angelo! Thanks to my mawma @stephanie_b22 for baking this delicious cake for me! I’m a lucky girl ❤️🔥 #BabyAngelo.”
It doesn’t look like Nicole will be taking much of a maternity leave after welcoming Angelo. She told People magazine in March, “I’m probably gonna take a couple of days off, but my mental state is always thinking about work and my brand, and expanding it and improving it and making it better. So taking a day off… that stresses me out, actually.”
Nicole announced in November that she was expecting. At the time, she posted precious photos of Lorenzo and Giovanni holding a sonogram image. The 31-year-old wrote in the caption, “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.”
She also shared cute “big big brother” and “big sister” photos of the kids in her Insta Stories.
Lorenzo and Giovanna seemed beyond excited to take on their new roles. Snooki told People magazine, “They tell my belly how their day was. They kiss the belly. My daughter, [when] she has food, she’ll put it by my belly [to] ‘feed’ the baby. It’s so cute.”
