E-Online reported today that the Jersey Shore reality star is expecting a child with current boyfriend Jionni LaValle.
Apparently, she wanted to keep the reports ho-hum while she shopped the news around to popular tabloids, a la Kourtney Kardashian.
The news of Snooki’s pregnancy breaks just as MTV begins shooting a new series with J-Wow (Jenni Farley) and Snooki. Sources told the New York Post “MTV went into crisis mode after they found out. They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show.”
Snooki, 24, is unwed but is still dating Lavalle.
She had denied the pregnancy rumors earlier, but some believe it was because she wanted to pass the three-month threshold and not jinx it.
