Jionni LaValle's unofficial baby name: ShortnTan
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has finally confirmed that she is expecting a baby with Jionni LaValle -- and the newly engaged couple is already brainstorming Shore-friendly nicknames.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi suddenly has a lot on her plate. Not only is the loud and adorable Jersey Shore personality newly engaged and happily pregnant, but she is also currently filming her spin-off reality series with Jenni "JWoww" Farley.
Since his pint-sized pickle lover will be plenty busy planning a wedding, decorating a nursery and sharing it all with America via MTV, fiance Jionni LaValle has apparently taken it upon himself to brainstorm baby names!
He took to Twitter to share his excitement for their big news, as well as a Shore-friendly nickname that stands up alongside the memorable and marketable names Snooki, JWoww and The Situation.
"Thank You everyone!! Sorry about that wait but glad everyone's happy!!" he wrote on Wednesday afternoon. "Nicole and I are real excited!! Our baby is going to be #ShortnTan."
LaValle, who began dating the Jersey Shore star a year and a half ago, also seized the opportunity to acknowledge the backlash he and his fiancee are experiencing.
"All u jealous, disrespectful haters out there, u see what u wana see on TV!" LaValle tweeted. "My fiance and I n JR are going to be so happy! #youllgeturs"
DJ Pauly D tweeted his congratulations to his castmate earlier today, complete with a high demand: "Congrats To My Girl @snooki So Happy For Her And Jionni!!" he wrote. " I Better Be The Godfather :) #UncleDJPaulyD"
