Before and after! Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Deena Nicole Cortese showed off different stages of motherhood in a new Instagram pic.

“Meatballs unite!” the Confessions of a Guidette author, 31, captioned the upload. “A skinny and a pregnant.”

In the photo, the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation costars were all smiles as Polizzi cradled her baby bump in a tight gray dress and Cortese, 32, showed off her post-baby weight loss in an all-black outfit.

“Love you!” the Couples Therapy alum commented on the post. “My face looks weird here bc of the lighting. Let’s get a picture tomm!”

She and her husband, Chris Buckner, became first-time parents in January when they welcomed their son.

“Our Little Man has finally arrived,” the reality star wrote on Instagram at the time. “Christopher John Buckner (CJ) born January 5th at 4:41 pm at a whopping 20.5 inches..6 Lb 8.5 ounces. Ugh mommy and daddy love you so much CJ .. you’re our everything!”

She added: “I never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did until i saw him hold CJ.”

Polizzi and her husband, Jionni LaValle, already share two kids — and they have a third on the way. Lorenzo was born in 2012, and he became a big brother when Giovanna arrived two years later. In November 2018, the Jersey Shore alum announced that she is expecting another.

“What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” she captioned a photo of her son and daughter holding an ultrasound shot.

She opened up about her pregnancy symptoms to Us Weekly exclusively in January. “I’m super nauseous, much more than I was with my other two,” she told Us at the time. “I just feel like every day I wake up and there’s something wrong with me. My stomach hurts or I’m cranky and I can’t move and just to need to lay down. It’s really annoying, the pregnancy. It’s not my favorite.”

That being said, the MTV personality is excited to welcome another boy to the family — and so are her kids. “They kiss my belly every single day,” she told Us. “They can’t wait for little brother.”
