Baby on board at the Jersey Shore house!
Season six of Jersey Shore will go on -- and mom-to-be Snooki will be part of the cast, MTV confirmed in a Monday statement.
"MTV gets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps," the statement begins, adding that production is set to start this summer at the infamous abode in Seaside Heights, NJ. "America's favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory . . .as their lives outside the "Shore" take off in exciting new directions."
Teases a rep for the pint-sized reality star to Us: "There will be a big change, that's for 'shore,' " this season! Viewers will have to wait and see... "
It's doubtful that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, 22, will actually live with her six pals in the house. She first broke new exclusively to Us Weekly that she was pregnant with her first child -- and engaged to the daddy-to-be, Jionni LaValle.
Furthers a source: "She's not going to be staying in the house -- no way."
"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same," MTV added.
Snooki wasn't sure about filming the reality show that made her famous when speaking with Us.
"If anything, I'll visit the shore," she told Us. "I'm not living in that house pregnant. I don't want to be one of those moms who's pregnant in a club. It's disgusting."
