Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi admits she planned to have two children before getting married.

The 26-year-old star and her fiancé Jionni LaValle, who already have 20-month-old son Lorenzo, will welcome their second child into the world around the same time they are set to tie the knot, but the brunette beauty insists she had every intention to fall pregnant before getting hitched.

Taking to her blog last night (04.04.14), she wrote: ''We planned to have a second child before our wedding, and will indeed still be getting married in the fall of 2014. We are a committed family that will raise our children to be the best they can be and give them the best life we can give them. I would love to also mention that Jionni and I are very happy together. He's my best friend and I'm his.''

The former 'Jersey Shore' beauty also hit back at claims that she deliberately fell pregnant to take the ''shine'' away from her friend Jenni 'JWoww' Farley, who announced in December she and her fiancé Roger Mathews are expecting their first child together.

Snooki said: ''Are you out of your minds? If you knew Jenni & I personally, you would know we always wanted to be pregnant together. I love Jenni like my big sister, she is everything to me, not fame. I would never try to 'outshine' her and, like real women, we support each other and always want the best for each other, not beat each other down to see who can be more 'famous'. (sic)''.
