Lock and load your baby talk and “awwwws.” It’s time for the first look at Snooki’s new bundle of joy.
The first photos of the world’s number one guido family’s newest member have arrived in full flare. And, judging by this first look, Snooks’ little meatball takes after his parents: tiny, plenty of attitude, and – yes – adorable…
Lorenzo, or “Enzo” as he’ll likely go by from here on out, is one of the cutest infants to pop out of a celebrity’s nether regions for some time. His cheeks are chubby and his tiny body seems like it could fit neatly inside an average-sized teacup.
The baby sleeps peacefully in the photo on his mama’s lap as she sits on a rocking chair with her legs crossed. Jionni squats close by, squeezing one of Lorenzo’s porker thighs. Both parents beam with happiness and pride.
"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," Snooki says in the cover story.
The article goes into the nitty-gritty of Snooki’s birth – 24 hours of labor – while keeping some details exclusive for the second season of “Snooki & JWoww,” which will feature a birthing episode.
Snooki and Jionni also talk about landing on the name “Lorenzo,” and the meaning behind it.
“We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo," Jionni says, explaining that both of are thrilled with the happenstance choice.
The boy’s middle name is Dominic, after Snooki’s late uncle.
“When I got pregnant, everything changed," says Snooki. "The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."
