Snooki & Jionni LaValle

Snooki & Jionni LaValle

2010 - current

 

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jionni LaValle began their occasionally tumultuous relationship in either November or December 2010. Jionni made his reality show debut as Nicole’s boyfriend of six months on the first episode of Jersey Shore’s fourth season – which was filmed in early May 2011.

Moving forward, their on again, off again relationship became a featured storyline throughout the fourth and fifth season of the hit MTV reality show – with Jionni making sporadic appearances at filming locations in Florence, Italy and Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

As production began on her Shore spin-off Snooki & JWoww in February 2012, rumors of Snooki’s first pregnancy began circulating quite heavily. In early March, it seemed MTV’s production crew had switched gears when they began seeking permission to film in Jersey City baby stores in lieu of local bars and party hot spots. Despite the evidence to the contrary, Snooki denied being pregnant in interviews with both Good Morning America and The Opie & Anthony Radio Show.

The script flipped completely when, on March 7th, 2012, Snooki confirmed her pregnancy and revealed her engagement to Jionni. In a cover story with Us Weekly, she admitted that she was three months along and had lied in previous interviews because she wanted to make sure the baby was ok. She said, “things can go wrong. It was my business and I wasn’t ready to tell.”

Immediately following the pregnancy revelation, the self-proclaimed meatball and her baby daddy filmed the first season of the aforementioned spin-off before returning to the Jersey Shore for its sixth and final season.

Nicole gave birth to a baby boy in Livingston, New Jersey on August 26th, 2012. She revealed his name on Twitter, saying, “I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD! ❤”

Rumors of Snooki’s second pregnancy hit the web via Page Six on February 21st, 2014. The reality star, much like her first pregnancy, kept quiet despite strong sources having seemingly confirmed the news for her. She made the announcement herself on April 4th, 2014, and revealed she was due to deliver the following fall – around the time she and Jionni had scheduled their long awaited nuptials.

Exactly a month after Lorenzo’s second birthday, Snooki gave birth to her second child, a daughter, on September 26th, 2014. And just like the first time around, she revealed the news, and the name of her newest rugrat, on Twitter. “So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect.”

Snooki officially became Nicole LaValle on November 29th, 2014 when she and Jionni tied the knot – two and a half years after first announcing their engagement. The Great Gatsby-themed ceremony was held at St. Rose of Lima, a Catholic church in East Hanover, New Jersey.
