Pregnant Snooki Says She and Jionni LaValle Want Second Baby to Be a Boy, “Not Ready” for Daughter

Snooki has a thing for mama’s boys! After confirming her second pregnancy exclusively to Us Weekly last Friday, Nicole Polizzi, 26, opened up about her and fiancé Jionni LaValle‘s desire for a little brother to join son Lorenzo, 19 months. 

Polizzi and LaValle, who met while the pint-sized partier was still filming Jersey Shore, welcomed their first child, Lorenzo Dominc LaValle, in August of 2012.

In an interview with Extra, Polizzi said she and LaValle are “definitely” going to find out the gender of the child, explaining, “If it’s a boy or it’s a girl, as long as the baby’s healthy we’re gonna be very, very happy, but me and Jionni would like to have two boys, you know, another boy.”

As to why she was hoping for a son rather than a daughter, Snooki dished, “Everybody in our family has a boy and then a girl, or a girl and a boy, so we kind of want two boys to switch it up and make it different.”

“Plus, I’m not ready to have a miniature me,” she continued. “I don’t need a diva telling me what to do. I’m not ready for that.”

Polizzi spoke to Us last week about her family, saying that the couple wanted their children to be close in age, “Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests.”

Expecting her second child this fall, Snooki said that she is planning to keep working out during her pregnancy in the hopes of maintaining her fit figure. The Jersey Shore alum is due around the time of her upcoming wedding, motivating her to want to fit into her wedding dress and “look good” for her nuptials.

Polizzi, who said she’s been craving salt and vinegar chips and strawberries lately, is doing things differently this time around by continuing work with her trainer and eating healthy.
