TORONTO – Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” fame says her pregnancy has been relatively smooth so far.
“The first trimester I was a little tired, I didn’t really get that sick, but just having the support of Jenni, she really helped me out,” the pint-sized, pouf-haired MTV reality star, who’s 5 1/2 months along with her first child, said Thursday in a phone interview.
“Aw, thanks, boo,” replied Jenni (JWoww) Farley, her “Jersey Shore” confidante with whom she co-stars in an upcoming spinoff series.
Polizzi, 24, confirmed in March she’s engaged and expecting her first child with Jionni LaValle.
On “Snooki and J-Woww,” slated to debut June 21 on MTV in Canada and the U.S., viewers will get to see her and Farley deal with Polizzi’s first trimester.
Polizzi said she’ll find out the baby’s gender in a few weeks, when season 6 of “Jersey Shore” starts filming.
Previous seasons have captured the group of Italian-American friends partying hard in Seaside Heights, N.J., and the group is trying to figure out how Polizzi will now fit into that lifestyle.
“We’re just figuring out how Nicole is going to be there, being pregnant and all, but she’ll definitely be by my side regardless,” said Farley, on the line from New York.
“When it comes to me being part of ‘Jersey Shore,’ I don’t know where I’m going to be staying or my involvement, but I really couldn’t imagine not being a part of it,” said Polizzi.
Polizzi also isn’t sure of when she and LaValle will tie the knot.
“I’m not even thinking about my wedding. The baby comes first, I don’t want to rush anything,” said the New York native, who’s about to publish her third novel.
“So have a healthy baby and be a good parent and then we’ll think about the wedding.”
