If reports are true, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi might need to work some Lamaze classes in to her gym-tan-laundry routine (GTLL, anyone?). The New York Post is reporting that the 24-year-old Jersey Shore star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jionni LaValle.
According to the paper's sources, Snooks -- who shot down pregnancy rumors as recently as her Feb. 2 appearance on ABC's Good Morning America -- is roughly three months pregnant. What's more, the insiders claim she had brokered a deal to reveal the news on the cover Us Weekly, and is allegedly looking to parlay her pregnancy into endorsement deals that would make her "the next Kim Kardashian."
Was Snooki hinting at her pregnancy during a recent episode of iVillage's Likes or Yikes? You be the judge:
If the guidette is with child, it would be an interesting turn of events for her upcoming Jersey Shore spinoff show with Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley. The untitled reality series is currently filming in Jersey City, N.J., and follows the friends/roommates as they get into "whatever adventures come their way." An unexpected pregnancy would certainly be an interesting adventure.
"MTV went into crisis mode after they found out," a source tells the Post. "They're trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show."
MTV, however, says that things are just peachy. "Nicole and Jenni began filming last week and moved into their new digs with animal print furniture in tow," a rep for the network told People. "Things are going great thus far."
When the magazine reached out to Snooki's rep to ask about the Post story, the answer was a simple "no comment."
"I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant," Snooki told GMA on Feb. 2. "Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I'm not."
