It’ll be a boy for Snooki and Jionni

Snooki Releases Her First Novel!

(CNN) — When Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi delivers her first child this fall, she and fiance Jionni LaValle will be the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy.

The reality star revealed the news in the new issue of In Touch Weekly, the cover for which she donned a blue dress, perhaps for the occasion.

The couple, who confirmed in March that they’re expecting, already have two names under consideration: Jionni Jr. and Lorenzo.

But while everyone else guessed that Snooki was going to welcome a boy, the 24-year-old herself was hoping for a girl.

“I thought it was going to be a girl,” she told In Touch. “I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls.”

While she may have been disappointed at first, “It’s still my baby no matter what,” she said. “I’m excited either way!”

But one thing she’s not excited for anymore is “smushing,” thanks to her pregnancy.

“Our sex life is hardly there!” she (over?) shared. “I just feel too icky and gross.”

The reality star is also passing on partying, and it sounds like that’ll extend even after her little one arrives.

As hard to believe as it may be that she’s no longer the fist-pumping hard drinker depicted on “Jersey Shore,” “Being a mom changes you,” Snooki explained.

Motherhood might also mean that she’s not interested in living in the “Jersey Shore” house, as TMZ reported Tuesday, but rather close by in her own place. MTV declined to comment on the rumors.
