PHOTOS Snooki engaged, shows off engagement ring

Snooki wears her engagement ring out in Jersey City while filming for her new reality series

It appears as though Jersey Shore is going to have a shotgun wedding! Numerous sources are reporting that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s boyfriend Jionni LaValle has popped the question, which Snooki seemed to verify herself by flaunting a big diamond ring on her finger while out and about in Jersey City earlier today.

Here’s a bling zoom:

Snooki denied being pregnant for weeks before seemingly undeniable reports broke last week revealing she is indeed expecting a little meatball! The news didn’t go over well with her fame-obsessed ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella, who had some rather horrible things to say about Snooki and her baby.

The pregnancy and the wedding should be a huge part of Snooki and JWoww’s new reality series, which just began filming last week. I’m thinking it will sort of be a Bethenny Getting Married kind of thing with less entrepreneurship and more pickles. Either way, it should feature a lot less drinking and thus less Snooki sucker punches, peeing on the back deck, and careening into hedges.

No Snooki wedding date has been revealed yet, but you can all but rest assured it will be right around the time MTV wraps up filming season one.

Hoboken and Jersey City may be kicking themselves for refusing the Guidette duo filming permits if this turns into a funny, successful series about Snooki being forced to mature and become a mom! I wonder if maternity wear stores will be hanging “No Snooki Allowed” signs like the bars and liquor stores have reportedly been doing around Jersey City.

So who do you think will be the next Jersey Shore star that is DTW? Could Ronnie and Sammi finally tie the knot? Or perhaps JWoww and her man Roger will make it a two-fer wedding season finale!

All I know is they better update my “Snookify Me” app with some engagement bling!
