Snooki Shows Off New Baby Boy In People Magazine

The baby’s here!

In the new issue of People magazine, Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi showed off her new bundle of joy on the cover.

“It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” she said of her baby boy Lorenzo Dominic LaValle with boyfriend Jionni Lavalle. The happy couple welcomed their first child on August 26.

When asked why they chose the name Lorenzo, Jionni said: “We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo … She loved it.” According to People Magazine, they chose the baby’s middle name, Dominic, after Polizzi’s late uncle.
