Snooki is reportedly pregnant.

The diminutive 'Jersey Shore' star - whose real name is Nicole Polizzi - and her boyfriend of just over a year, Jionni LaValle, are expecting their first child together and the pregnancy will feature in her new reality TV show, a spin-off with co-star Jenni 'J-Woww' Farley.

A source told America's Star magazine: "She is pregnant and has only told her closest friends and some family. She's been telling people that she has a big announcement coming.

"They are having to redo the creative direction of her spin-off because of her pregnancy."

Snooki recently revealed she is looking forward to leaving her partying ways behind to get married and have a baby with Jionni although she wasn't expecting it to happen so soon.

She said: "I'm still waiting for that ring, I swear to God. I've been telling him this for months now!'

"I live my life crazy partying whatever, but I'm ready to settle down and have a little baby.

"[I'm giving him] two years. I'm 24 now. He has until 26 to ask me. If he doesn't ask me, I'm asking him!'

Snooki has previously hooked up with 'Jersey Shore' co-star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino and Vinny Guadagnino on the show.
