Snooki announces she’s pregnant—and thankful for it


Nicole “Snooki’ Polizzi might not have a turkey in the stove this Thanksgiving, but she definitely has a bun in the oven.

The Jersey Shore star announced on social media that she is expecting her third child with husband Jionni LaValle.

She shared a sweet Insta-pic of her two children, 4-year-old Giovanna and 6-year-old Lorenzo, holding a framed ultrasound in their hands.

“What I’m thankful for this thanksgiving,” she captioned the shot.

The baby isn’t a complete surprise considering the reality star told E! Back in March that she and her husband are ready to have another kid.

“We’re ready for another one, just not like tomorrow,” she told E! News.

“I don’t want any more girls. If I have a girl, I’m just going to be really upset about it,” she added.

She also said she’d like to name her future son something Italian like Frankie, Rocco, or Dino.

This is some news we can really pump our fist about.
