Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is in for a pretty busy year.
On top of planning for her wedding, the former "Jersey Shore" star also has a new nursery to decorate. The reality star announced Friday on her website that she and fiance Jionni LaValle are expecting their second child. The couple already has a 19-month-old son, Lorenzo.
"Jionni and I are so excited to confirm that we are expecting our second child! Now knowing that our test results are good and our baby is healthy, we can finally talk about it!" she posted on her website.
"I want to thank everyone for their congratulations and we can feel how excited you are for us!" she added. "We could not be happier! Big things are happening this year with the wedding, moving into our dream house and having our second bambino or bambina!"
Polizzi said the health of her baby, not her relationship with her family, prompted her to keep the pregnancy quiet until now.
"Jionni and I are VERY happy together. He's my best friend and I'm his," she said. "Jionni and I wanted to clear the air by saying we only kept our second pregnancy to ourselves for the health of our child and until we reached a reasonable time to let the world know."
