Jersey Shore mascot Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has officially announced to In Touch Weekly that her long-promised child will be a male-gendered human being. “Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!” said the reality TV star, whose pregnancy will no doubt form a key subplot to both season six of Jersey Shore and her vanity spin-off Snooki & J-Woww. (Rumors are circulating that Snooki, fearing for her unborn child’s safety, has decided to live in a separate house from the rest of the gang on the upcoming Shore season.)

At this point, Snooki and fiancé/baby daddy Jionni LaValle have settled on two possible names: Lorenzo and Jionni Jr. So, hopefully, Lorenzo. Snooki also noted that pregnancy has severely impacted her sex drive, before concluding with some thoughts about maternity. “I’m not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born… Being a mom changes you.” I give it five years before she’s a co-host on The View.
