Snooki is expecting a baby boy.

The 'Jersey Shore' star is pregnant with her first child with fiance Jionni LaVelle and although they are looking forward to welcoming a son, Snooki admitted she was hoping for a little girl.

She told In Touch Weekly magazine: ''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!''

Snooki - real name Nicole Polizzi - also revealed the couple are considering calling their son Lorenzo or Jionni Jr.

Although she is famous for her hard-partying ways, Snooki has vowed to settle down when she becomes a mother.

She said: ''I'm not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born. Being a mom changes you.''

Meanwhile, the diminutive reality TV star plans to remain on the MTV show but has moved out of the 'Jersey Shore' house in Seaside Heights, New Jersey to live with Jionni.

A source close to Snooki - who is due to give birth in September- told the party loving house is ''certainly not comfortable for someone well into her pregnancy''.
