Snooki Pregnant: Star Confirms Baby Rumors

It's official: Snooki's going to be a mom!

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who became a household name thanks to her wild antics on MTV's "Jersey Shore," confirmed her pregnancy and engagement to boyfriend Jionni LaValle to Us Weekly.

"I have different priorities now," Snooki told the magazine. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."

The petite, often-ridiculed reality star's baby news comes after a week filled with rumors suggesting she was expecting, with anonymous sources spilling the beans to various outlets.

However, the rumors first popped up earlier this year, and though she was indeed pregnant at the time, she denied the stories because "she didn't want to jinx herself," a source told TMZ.

One thing Snooki does cop to in her Us Weekly exclusive: partying on New Year's Eve, just days before she found out she was pregnant.

"'S--t, I've been drinking!'" was Snooki's first thought when she found out about her baby news. "I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy."

After the pregnancy buzz came the engagement rumors. Snooki stayed mum on claims that her boyfriend of a year and a half had popped the question, but wasn't shy about flashing a rock on her ring finger while filming her "Jersey Shore" spin-off with pal, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, earlier this week in New Jersey.
