Yesterday, we were all eagerly awaiting Arie and Lauren’s baby, but there was another new arrival being delivered into the world of reality TV. This morning, Snooki revealed that she has given birth to her third baby, thoroughly stealing the spotlight from the Luyendyk’s. Sorry Arie, but I didn’t get a breaking news notification on my phone when you announced your baby. Who knows, maybe Angelo and Alessi will be friends someday, stranger things have happened.
Snooki first announced her latest pregnancy back in November, and shared that the baby was a boy in December. She joins a group of recent celebrity pregnancies that seemed like they went on forever, including Meghan Markle, Amy Schumer, and obviously Lauren Burnham. But now Snooks can finally put away her maternity swimsuits, because her little baby is here:
Snooki announced the arrival of baby #3 via a People exclusive, where she confirmed that she gave birth at 2:30am on May 30. I respect the dedication to having the People exclusive posted less than 12 hours after your middle of the night delivery. In the article, Snooki said that her new son Angelo looks just like her oldest, Lorenzo, did when he was a baby. She also shared that her Jersey Shore castmate Deena sent over some thoughtful gifts, including a blanket that says Angelo about 100 times. It’s not my personal taste, but I’m sure the baby will love it.
Check out our interview with Snooki from last month on the When’s Happy Hour podcast, where she talks about how she balances being a mom with running successful businesses:
Having a third baby in the mix will definitely make things a bit more challenging, but it seems like Snooki has a good system in place. In the interview with People, she said that she and Jionni “can’t wait to see how being outnumbered turns out,” so hopefully we can look forward to some more Snooki shenanigans on the upcoming third season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
Congratulations to Snooki and Jionni, and all the best wishes for their new family addition!
