Sources close to Snooki, 24, confirm to the NY Post that she and beau Jionni LaValle are expecting their first child together, and she’s about three months along.
So why did she deny the pregnancy earlier? Well, it appears the Snooks was planning to cash in on her big news! The NY Post is reporting this morning that Snooki has struck a deal with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy on their cover, after shopping her pregnancy story to multiple magazines.
MTV is now reportedly worried about their cash cow, no pun intended, in regards to how this will resonate with fans, as let’s face it, Snooki is famous for being a drunken hot mess.
In fact, she just started filming a spinoff show with her Jersey Shore costar and BFF JWoww last week. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show,” says a source.
Star Magazine was the first to break news back on Feb 1, and on Feb 2, Snooki appeared on Good Morning America during which she denied being preggos. “I definitely do want kids, but I’m not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I’m not,” said Snooki to Lara Spencer.
No word yet on when Snooki’s announcement will appear on UsWeekly magazine. Snooki’s pregnancy will likely mark the end of the Jersey Shore series, at least for her cast, as it’s very doubtful the show can go on without her. A report also came out two weeks ago stating Snooki and Jionni were engaged.
