Snooki admits she’s pregnant and engaged exclusively to US Weekly; freaked out about drinking during first trimester

The New York Post‘s report about Snooki lying about not being pregnant was dead-on. She reveals her baby bump on the cover of US Weekly this week, and admits that she’s pregnant and engaged (click here to see Snooki sporting her engagement ring!)

Snooki also told the magazine that she’s a changed Snooks, and that the Jersey Shore-style partying is in her past.

“I have different priorities now.I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

Baby daddy Jionni also added, “We are not going to screw this up.”

Snooki found out about the pregnancy right after she partied really hard in Vegas for New Year’s. She was upset about the drinking when she learned about the pregnancy, but she’s been a good girl ever since. Snooks even refused a beverage on Andy Cohen’s booze-fueled Watch What Happens Live (at the time she was denying a correct report from Star magazine that she was pregnant. She claimed she was dieting, but that was the same stunt Kim Zolciak pulled on the show while she was waiting for her Life & Style exclusive to break.

Snooki told US Weekly that she lied to her fans about the pregnancy because she didn’t want to break the cardinal rule of only telling your closest friends and relatives during the first three months in case something goes wrong. “It was my business, and I wasn’t ready to tell.” Snooki has a point there.

We’re excited to see Snooki on this new journey, and it will be fun to watch Snooki “grow up” on camera with her new show with Jwoww.
