The loveable “meatball” from MTV’s hit reality series Jersey Shore is pregnant, reports the New York Post.
Snooki (Nicole Polizzi), 24, is expecting her first child with steady boyfriend Jionni LaValle. The couple’s volatile relationship has been well documented throughout the five seasons of Jersey Shore. Though she has publicly denied being preggers, Page Six says their source isn’t lying.
“MTV went into crisis mode after they found out,” said a source. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show. ” The untitled new show has just begun taping and focuses on the ladies’ relationship as friends and roommates — and whatever adventures come their way.
The reality star has been spotted around Jersey City with cast-mate JWoww. However, a rep for MTV stated that the network “doesn’t comment on series in production.”
Snooki’s camp declined to comment at press time.
