Ah, to think that at the beginning of 2012, no one knew that Snooki was pregnant, engaged or about to film the last-ever season of “Jersey Shore.” Here’s a nice pic of Snooks as we knew her before all these life-altering revelations, snapped in February. Of course, she already knew she was pregnant and engaged (we didn’t find out till March), and possibly even about the last season of “Jersey Shore” but no one had told us yet. Ignorance is bliss!
Yes, that’s a purple poodle. We’ve heard they help to deal with the stress that comes from filming a spin-off of a wildly popular reality show (“Snooki & JWoww”) while balancing an unexpected pregnancy. Here, Snooki was on her way to visit a psychic in Jersey City. Hopefully the psychic saw only good things ahead, otherwise, she’s quite obviously a giant fraud.
Here, a six-months pregnant Snooki and fiance Jionni LaValle pose with their new car. Just kidding! Here, Snooki and Jionni prep for parenthood at Apple Seeds NYC, a giant play space for little meatballs and their friends.
Maternity leave just doesn’t exist when you are a pint-size entertainment icon. Case in point: In June, Snooki trekked back to the shore house in Seaside Heights, NJ for one more summer of filming what was one of MTV’s biggest hits of all time. After a short time in the now-infamous house, she wisely moved to her own space next door so she could be healthy and the rest of the gang would not have to edit themselves. In August, MTV announced that the sixth season would be the show’s last.
While the Shore gang was up to their usual antics, Snooki was sometimes feeling left out. So, she made a new friend in this penguin balloon. Here, they go for a stroll on the boardwalk. It wasn’t exactly an earth-shattering event, but it was a very Snooki moment we thought you wouldn’t mind reliving.
Snooki gave birth to her son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle on August 25 (and posted this adorable pic in November). She Tweeted: “I am SO IN LOVE with Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, a healthy 6lbs. HE’S MY WORLD!”
Snooki is back in her pre-pregnancy leather pants and four-inch (or maybe more) platform heels! She’s pictured here at the launch of her fragrance, Snooki Couture, at Perfumania in NYC. We’re definitely impressed with how she got her body back so quickly, but we’re even more proud of her for the way she has embraced motherhood and the next phase of her life! Here’s to more good things for Snooki in 2013!
