There will be another baby coming to the Jersey Shore. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi made a surprise announcement on Thanksgiving that she and her husband Jionni LaValle are expecting their third child.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, the news follows the couple's marital drama that led to divorce rumors that began a year ago. On Thursday, November 22, however, MTV's Jersey Shore star, 30, wrote on Instagram, “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” as a caption of a photo of their son, Lorenzo, 6, and her daughter, Giovanna, 4, holding a sonogram.
In the first shot, the siblings look happily at the sonogram but in a second picture Snooki shared, the two appear rattled about the coming new member of their family. The joyous pregnancy announcement comes after some alleged marriage problems, as Radar exclusively reported last December.
The speculation started when Snooki stopped posting photos of her husband, 31, on social media. He was even absent from the family’s Christmas card shoot last year. He also hadn't attended her co-star Deena Cortese's October wedding to Chris Buckner.
At the time, a source added to Radar, “Jionni never goes out with her and she seems to be going out a lot.” Also, LaValle raised eyebrows by going on a heated rant about her stint on the reunion show Jersey Shore Family Vacation, writing on Instagram, "I am choosing not to be on TV because I simply do not like it. “I own my own business and work hard at it, that’s what I do,” he said. “My wife is a reality star and works hard at that, that’s what she does.”
Back then, LaValle clarified that they were “not divorced.”
However, Snooki shot down split rumors in April, telling Us Weekly, “I’m still proudly wearing my ring. I love him to death. I think people worry because we never take pictures together and post on Instagram. He hates pictures, he hates this fame life. He likes to be quiet and reserved, which humbles me."
Then in October, she told Us that she and LaValle, whom she wed in November 2014, had been trying for two months to have another baby. “We stay up till 3 o’clock in the morning just watching Netflix and getting drunk and trying to have a baby.
"I’m just gonna relax. If it happens, it happens," she said.
And now it has!
