A new baby guido has joined the Jersey Shore family!
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her husband Jionni LaValle welcomed their third child early Thursday morning. The baby boy weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz and was given the name Angelo James LaValle. Nicole and Jionni are already parents to four-year-old daughter Giovanna and six-year-old Lorenzo
“So thrilled to welcome baby Angelo into our little family! He is so sweet and a spitting image of Lorenzo as a baby,” Nicole told People magazine. “Jionni and I can’t wait to see how being outnumbered turns out!”
Nicole announced her pregnancy back in November with a Thanksgiving-themed announcement. At the time, she stated that it took her longer to get pregnant with Angelo than it did with her previous two kids.
Nicole has been busy running her Snooki Store in New Jersey and hosting the MTV show How Far is Tattoo Far? She will also be appearing on the upcoming third season of ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation.’ Jionni has somewhat retreated from the spotlight, although he excitedly posted his new son’s photos to his Instagram account.
“Angelo LaValle welcome to the Family! #JustThe5OfUs,” he captioned the pics.
Nicole’s ‘Jersey Shore’ roommates seemed equally excited about the newest Baby Meatball’s arrival, especially her pal Deena Cortese, who gave birth to a little boy named CJ in January.
“So gorgeous!” Deanna wrote in the comment section of Nicole’s baby photos. “Love you so much !! CJ can’t wait to meet his bestie.”
“Aww he’s such a little cutie!! Congratulations!!” Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola wrote.
“He’s dope,” Vinny Guadagnino wrote. “Congratulations!”
Baby Angelo is the eighth child born to the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast members. Other than Nicole’s three kids and Deana’s son, Jenni “JWoww” Farley has two children with her (now estranged) husband Roger Mathews. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has one child with his on-and-off-again girlfriend Jen Harley, and DJ Pauly D has a five-year-old daughter named Amabella, who is the product of a one-night stand he had with a Vegas cocktail waitress.
