"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," Polizzi, who was in labor with Lorenzo for more than 24 hours, told the magazine. "When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."

The couple shared with People the inspiration for their son's name: "I just happened to think of Lorenzo," LaValle said, and Dominic is in memory of Polizzi's late uncle. "I did it for my dad," said Polizzi.

Polizzi is currently filming a second season of "Snooki & JWOWW." You can catch her on the final season of "Jersey Shore," which premieres Oct. 4.
