(NEW YORK) — Jersey Shore‘s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is trading in GTL — gym, tanning and laundry — for breastfeeding and sobriety. The MTV reality star, who sat down with ABC’s Juju Chang in an interview that aired on Monday’s Good Morning America, is changing her ways as she prepares for the birth of her first child with fiancé Jionni Lavalle.
Snooki, who became notorious for her alcohol-fueled partying on the hit MTV show, said that she’s sworn off drinking for the next few months.
“All of my friends are like, ‘You can have a glass of wine.’ I’m like, ‘No. I refuse,'” Snooki told Chang. “Because, you know, I’m going to be that person that has a glass of wine and [the baby will] come out with three legs. I’m scared to even have caffeine.”
The soon-to-be mom has also stayed away from the tanning booth and says that she’s “embracing the paleness that’s coming along with it.” When asked if she plans to breastfeed, Snooki said, “It just looks so painful, but I definitely want to pump [my breast milk] because its the best nutrients for your baby.”
But even though she has given up on dying her hair and partying while pregnant, she won’t let go of her leopard prints, tight clothes and sky-high heels. “I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant. It doesn’t mean I need to wear flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good,” insisted Snooki.
MTV has yet to announce a premiere date for the sixth season of Jersey Shore.
