Make room for baby No. 3! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant as she announced that she and husband Jionni LaValle are expecting their third child together.
The Jersey Shore star, 30, shared the news on Instagram on Thursday, November 22. “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” she captioned photos of her 6-year-old son, Lorenzo, and her 4-year-old daughter, Giovanna, holding a sonogram.
In one pic, the siblings cuddle while looking lovingly at the baby. Their moods change entirely in the second shot, where the pair appear to freak out over the soon-to-be newest addition.
Polizzi has been open about her desire to have another child. “We’ve actually been trying for two months now and it’s not happening,” the reality star revealed exclusively to Us Weekly in October.
She also noted that stress could be a factor, adding: “So I’m just gonna relax. If it happens, it happens.”
The MTV personality got more intimate with the details of her baby-making plans that same month. “We get our wine, we order pizza and then we go into our spare room,” she said of the couple’s monthly date nights. “We stay up till 3 o’clock in the morning just watching Netflix and getting drunk and trying to have a baby.”
Deena Nicole Cortese, who is pregnant with her first child with husband Chris Buckner, reiterated her costar’s sentiment when she spoke to Us in September. “Nicole definitely has baby fever,” she admitted. “She wants another.”
Polizzi, who tied the knot with LaValle, 31, in November 2014, shut down divorce rumors in April. “I’m still proudly wearing my ring,” she told Us at the time. “I love him to death. I think people worry because we never take pictures together and post on Instagram. He hates pictures, he hates this fame life. He likes to be quiet and reserved, which humbles me. So, I think if I don’t take pictures with him or I don’t share my life with him, people are like, ‘Are you still with your husband?’ I don’t need to share with the world what me and my husband are going through. We are totally fine. We don’t post our life on social media, but I love him to death and he’s my best friend and he’s just a little shy so leave him alone.”
