(LOS ANGELES) — Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her little meatball bundle of joy Lorenzo Dominic grace the cover of People magazine this week.
In the exclusive interview, the Jersey Shore starlet not only shows off her newborn son with fiancee Jionni LaValle, but explains how her life is different since she found out they were expecting.
“When I got pregnant, everything changed,” Snooki says. “The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
The couple’s son arrived on Aug. 26, after 24 hours of labor, Snooki says, and after countless headlines about her pregnancy and how it would affect her career.
MTV answered some of those questions for her, by announcing Jersey Shore’s upcoming 6th season — which kicks off on Oct. 4 — would be its last, and by renewing Polizzi’s spin-off, Snooki & Jwoww.
