Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, has revealed that she's expecting a baby boy. The MTV reality star - who announced her pregnancy back in March - told In Touch magazine that she will be the proud mother of a son when the baby finally arrives in September.

Snooki - who is engaged to Jionni LaValle - said, "Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right! I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls. It's still my baby, no matter what. I'm excited either way!". The 24-year-old also shows off the growing baby-bump in the latest issue of the tabloid magazine and said her cravings are beginning to intensify, saying, "I love anything cold and juicy, like Italian ices". Shortly after Snooki announced her pregnancy, reports suggested Mtv bosses were scratching their heads as to how to continue with the hit series 'Jersey Shore' - on which Snooki is famed for her hard partying and drinking. The reality star admitted that she's ready to leave her childish behaviour behind, saying, "I'm not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born. Being a mom changes you".

As for names, Snooki says she has two possibilities already, though has not fully committed to either. Perhaps the boy will be named after his father Jionni, or even Snooki's Jersey Shore cast-mates MIKE SORRENTINO?
