Snooki Says Pregnancy Has Made Her Grow Up

Is this the end of GTL for Snooki? Well, it is for the "T" part at least!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi tells People Magazine that she’s given up that part of the Shore regimen during her pregnancy. She and fiancée Jionni LaValle, both 24, are expecting their first baby later this year.

Impending motherhood has had quite an effect on the “Jersey Shore” star made infamous for her hard-partying ways and oft-parodied pouf hairstyle.

In New York City to promote her new MTV reality show spinoff, “Snooki & JWoww vs. the Word,” Polizzi shared the changes she’s made with reporters. "I guess [pregnancy] just made me more mature,” she said. “It's different because now I'm not drinking. I'm usually partying and going to clubs but pregnancy made me grow up a lot."

Cast mate, Jenni “JWoww” Farley concurs. "[Nicole] really came into her own being pregnant. Looking at your best friend and seeing that you feel proud.”

Polizzi and Farley’s new show will feature Snooki during her first trimester, which she reports didn’t include too much morning sickness. “I hardly threw up. I was just very tired and cranky.”

As for Snooki’s former favorite snack of pickles, which she was often shown munching on “Jersey Shore” before her pregnancy, the reality star says that craving is in the past. “[Now] it’s a lot of fruits and Italian icies … no pickles.”

“Snooki & JWoww” premieres June 21 on MTV.
