TV’s favorite pintsized guidette is not only expecting, she’s also getting hitched!
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is now engaged to her boyfriend Jionni LaValle, according to a source who spoke with PEOPLE on Monday.
Star magazine was first to report -- via RadarOnline.com -- on February 1 that Snooki, 24, was indeed pregnant with her first child and that LaValle was the father.
In the days after that report first hit RadarOnline.com, Snooki repeatedly denied she was expecting, but as the reports resurfaced last week, both she and her reps have not issued any comment.
The reality TV star was reportedly trying to keep the news mum so she can sell an exclusive to a magazine for a big payday.
Meanwhile, Snooki can be seen on Jersey Shore, which airs Thursdays on MTV at 10/9c.
She’s also currently shooting a spin-off reality show with Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, titled Snooki and JWOEWW Vs. The World, which will air later this year.
