Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi revealed she is expecting her third child with husband Jionni LaValle.
The reality tv star used Instagram to share the good news with her almost 12 million followers on Thanksgiving Day. In a heartfelt photo her son, Lorenzo Dominic age 6, and daughter Giovanna Marie age 4 are holding a picture of the sonogram of their little brother or sister. The siblings have their arms around each other as they stare lovingly at the picture. Snooki captioned the black and white photograph by merely stating that her children are what she is thankful for these days.
Fans of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will recall on the most current season Snooki thought she was pregnant. She shared on camera that she and her husband of four years were trying for baby number three. In the episode, Snooki was not pregnant. But it looks like all that trying paid off, and her family is expanding.
Jionni LaValle chose a different tactic for sharing the news on his social media feed. He snuck in the news their family is expanding in a happy birthday post to his wife. The 31-year-old added #JustThe5OfUs in his birthday wish to Snooki. It was a subtle reveal, but enough that his followers noticed, and the comments were flooded with congratulations for the couple.
Neither Polizzi nor LaValle has spilled the beans on the sex of their third child. Now that doesn't mean there won't be some extravagant gender reveal announcement, it is after all Snooki, and she tends to be over the top. If the reality TV star gets her wish, the little one will be a boy. She said a couple of years ago that she was thrilled to have a daughter, but one was enough.
There is also no word on how her pregnancy will impact future seasons of the mega-hit revival Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. The show had been a massive success since its return last year but with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino headed for prison soon, season 3 has not been confirmed yet. Sorrentino will begin his eight-month prison sentence in January 2019.
Congrats to Snooki, Jionni, Lorenzo, and Giovanna on the wonderful news that their family is expanding next year.
