She's expecting — again! Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is pregnant with her second child, she tells Us Weekly exclusively. The "Jersey Shore" alum and fiance Jionni LaValle are already parents to 19-month-old son Lorenzo.
"Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests," the reality star, 26, tells Us, adding that they want their kids to be close in age. "I'm due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!"
Us exclusively broke news in March 2012 that Polizzi and Jionni, 26, were both engaged and expecting their first child. Snooki has her hands full with baby Lorenzo already, but reveals the couple's wedding won't be pushed back due to her second pregnancy.
"I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other," she gushes to Us. "We've waited long enough and cannot wait."
As for staying active during her pregnancy? "(I'm) still working out with my trainer, safely, obviously, and being more conscious of the bad foods I eat," she says. "I refuse to be in labor again for 27 hours, and being active definitely helps that."
"I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding," she adds. "So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!"
The mom-to-be isn't the only pregnant "Jersey Shore" alum. Polizzi's "Snooki & JWoww" costar and best friend Jenni "JWoww" Farley announced back in December 2013 she's expecting her first child with fiance Roger Mathews. Us exclusively confirmed that the 27-year-old is having a baby girl. "Jenni and I always talked about being pregnant together," Snooki tells Us. "I'm so excited to go through this experience with my best friend!"
