Less than a week after giving birth to son Lorenzo Dominic at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is ready to introduce her baby boy to the world.
Snooki dons a huge smile as she holds her adorable son for the cover of the upcoming issue of People magazine hitting newsstands on Friday.
Sporting a leopard dress, Snooki appears to have already lost the baby weight gained during her pregnancy as she poses, alongside Lorenzo and fiance Jionni LaVelle for a family portrait for the full spread.
In the issue, the first time mom gushes about her son and talks about why she chose the name Lorenzo.
On having a child: “It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before.”
On the name Lorenzo: ”We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo,” says LaValle, 25, who adds that he was inspired by a child he knew from his hometown, where he and Polizzi now live with his parents. “She loved it.”
On her days of partying: “When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
