Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, says she was scared to tell her father that she was pregnant last winter. The reality star also said she was nervous that it would affect her plans for a Jersey Shore spin-off with Jenni Farley, which premieres on MTV on Thursday (June 29, 2012)
The pregnancy was a huge surprise to fans of the hard-partying star, and Snooki explained to People magazine, "Oh, I was scared to tell my dad, of course! [My dad] is excited now. I think [my parents] are more excited than we are.I'm their only child and this is going to be their [first] grandchild". A onetime wild-child, Snooki and her fiance Jionni LaValle have now settled down and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their first child saying, "When people find the one they love, they feel like their spouse is their best friend and their lover.That's how you know you've found your soul-mate, and I've never had that with anyone except Jionni, so I put two and two together and figured he's definitely the one". The couple are looking to tie the knot in 2013, with Polizzi recently telling US Weekly magazine, "We will focus on the baby first. I want to have the baby, lose weight and have the baby in the wedding".
New spin-off 'Snooki and JWoww' follows the friends as they live together in a former firehouse in Jersey City, New Jersey.
