Watch ‘Jersey Shore’ Star Snooki Reveal the Gender of New Baby With Her Son’s Help
Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi just posted an adorable new video to her YouTube channel, revealing the sex of her new baby and chronicling her gender reveal party.
Snooki says she and her husband already knew the baby's sex but still wanted to have a party to reveal the big news. "We don't like surprises...but, I decided to still have a reveal party...it's more for the family," she tells us in the video's intro.
Snooki and husband, Jionni LaValle, already have two children together, six-year-old son Lorenzo and four-year-old daughter Giovanna. Snooki gave her son perhaps the most important job at the party – As her husband pitches him a special gender-reveal baseball, the six-year-old would swing and hit it, with either pink or blue powder exploding from within.
Before the party starts, Snooki asks her two kids, "what do you think we're having?" to which both children reply "A boy!" Try not to laugh when her son exclaims, "If it's a girl I'm gonna die!"
The anticipation grows as Snooki's family and friends gather, and her son practices his swing with his dad. Then the moment of truth comes! Lorenzo seems to get a bit nervous, but nails it on the first swing. The slow-motion footage reveals an explosion of blue powder – IT'S A BOY!
Snooki first announced she was pregnant with baby number three on Instagram this past Thanksgiving. In the post, her two kids hold a framed sonogram image of their future baby brother. Snooki captioned the post, "What I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving."
Congrats and well wishes to Nicole, Jionni, and the whole family, (and good job hitting that ball, Lorenzo!) We can't wait to meet the newest member of the bunch.
