Little Lorenzo is almost here!
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her love of two years, Jionni LaValle, have checked into a hospital after Polizzi, 24, went into labor Saturday, her reps confirm to Us Weekly.
"Yes, Nicole has gone into labor," they said in a statement Saturday evening. "While we understand she has fans everywhere - hospitals now included - we ask that her privacy be respected moving forward. We'll all get to meet her Italian Stallion newborn soon enough."
The Jersey Shore star and her fiance first shared their happy news -- that they are engaged and expecting their first child together -- with Us back in March.
The reformed party girl admitted she knew their announcement would cause a bit of a stir among her critics.
"I have different priorities now," Polizzi assured Us. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."
Added LaValle, "We are not going to screw this up."
