Pregnant Snooki Reveals She Stopped Tanning for the Baby

The pregnant Jersey Shore star says she's been avoiding tanning beds -- but she's still maintaining her naturally bronzed look

Kim Kardashian might joke about rivaling the "tanning mom," but fellow reality star Snooki says she's over tanning -- at least, for the next several months.

It's no secret that the pregnant Jersey Shore star, 24, loves her tanning ritual, but she made the surprising revelation that she hasn't tanned since August!

Snooki has looked notoriously close to tanning-mom orange in the past. But even after skipping the bed, she still looks naturally sun-kissed.

"When I tan once, it stays forever," Snooki tells E! News. "I have that natural dark skin. Even if I didn't tan for two years, I would still be tan."

And limiting her exposure to tanning beds isn't the only change Snooki is making for the sake of her pregnancy.

"I have three applications on my phone that takes you through your pregnancy," she says. "They tell me things like what to eat, what to expect at certain times, like cramps or swelling. I'm always prepared for what's happening to my body."

And Snooki is even planning her childbirth preparation classes.

"I'm also going to be taking Lamaze and parenting classes," Snooks adds. "But those are a little more down the road."

Snooki's baby daddy, Jionni LaValle, 25, however, is already well-prepared for becoming a father.

"He has a big family, so he's used to taking care of his nieces and nephews," Snooki says. "He has more experience with children than I do."
