Snooki Is Pregnant and Engaged


snooki-engaged.jpgThe Jersey Shore's biggest breakout star (and also technically the tiniest), Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is not only pregnant, she's engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle. In an interview with Good Morning America earlier this month, Snooki denied bun-in-the-oven rumors, saying, "I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant. Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I'm not."

Oh? Apparently the 24-year-old reality star is happy for the real thing now, because, in addition to expecting a child later this year, she and LaValle also plan to wed. "I know he's the one so I know the ring's gonna come soon," Snookie told People in January. "He knows it should be big, cuz if it's small I'm saying no. Like, 'Get another ring!'"

Aside from a much-needed crash course in decorum, it seems Snooki wants for a lesson in gracious proposal etiquette—because it's not okay to say you think the stone is too small! That's like saying, "You didn't spend enough money." Surely, whatever MTV is paying the self-described lil' meatball for her new spin-off series with fellow Shorester Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, Snooki can afford her own upgrade.
