Snooki and Jionni LaValle having a boy

Pint-sized Jersey Shore star Snooki is a few months away from giving birth, but she already knows what she's having: A boy! Read on to find out all the details on her upcoming baby guido.

Snooki and Jionni LaValle having a boy

Earlier this month, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi said she'd dress her child "like Pauly [D]" if she had a boy. Well, she better start investing in gel and baby spray tanner because that's exactly what she's having!

"Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!" she told InTouch Weekly in the new issue, admitting that she was disappointed at first. "I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls. It's still my baby, no matter what. I'm excited either way!"

The pickle-loving reality star seems to be taking well to her new role as expectant mom: She doesn't want to have sex as much (much to fiancé Jionni LaValle's chagrin) and is done with her partying days.

"#JerseyShore's @Snooki is having a..." with "Demon? Spawn? Giraffe? Iguana? Rhino?" one user tweeted — and she noticed.

"Iguana!" she wrote back. Awesome attitude.
