Snooki In High School: New Mom Performs As Cheerleader (PHOTO)

She may have her hands full with a newborn now, but long before she was a mom, she was just a teenage cheerleader in New York.

Snooki, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed son Lorenzo Dominic on August 26, officially becoming the first of the "Jersey Shore" cast to venture into parenthood. However, our friends over at Snakkle.com have uncovered a flashback photo of Snooks from her cheerleading days at Marlboro High School in Marlboro, N.Y., in 2006.

Oh, how times have changed. Now Snooki's world revolves around her bundle of joy, Enzo.

"Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad," Snooki tweeted on August 26.

Check out one flashback photo of Snooki below. For more photos, head over to Snakkle.com.
