5 Things You Didn't Know About Snooki's Fiance, Jionni LaValle

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has accomplished what many single women complain about not being able to accomplish: getting engaged and having a kid.

Jionni LaValle has been featured on Season 4 and Season 5 of ‘Jersey Shore’, but aside from the fact that he’s forgiving, we know very little about the kid. If you haven’t seen ‘Jersey Shore’--well first of all, let me congratulate you on your brain cells. But also, you probably know even less about him. So without further adieu, here are five things you might not know about Snooki’s fiancé, Jionni LaValle.

He’s an Aspiring Teacher: Jionni is studying to get a teaching degree, just like his two older brothers. If he becomes a teacher, I really hope Snooki comes in for Career Day. And for her Career Day speech, she just recites Tweets from her timeline:

“OMFG I hate fricken ‘emergency tests’ on tv with the scary alarm sounds. Makes me think of I Am Legend or War of the Worlds. BYE!”

“I love music.”

He’s Not a Gorilla: Blasphemy. Snooki’s fiancé is actually not a gorilla juicehead. If you’ve seen ‘Jersey Shore,’ that basically means a giant dude who looks like he’s ready to get kicked out of a bar for punching. A friend close to Snooki said: “She wasn't sure about him at first and kept asking her friends what they thought of him. She was hesitant because he isn't the typical gorilla."

He’s Family-Friendly: Jionni is a hit in the Polizzi household. “My dad and boo are bonding,” Snooki Tweeted when Jionni joined the family on a road trip.

He Coaches Kids: Despite not being a gorilla juicehead (I’m still trying to cope with that), Jionni coaches wrestling for little kids.

He’s a Dolphins fan: The Miami Dolphins, that is. But I’m sure he likes the animal too, because, well, who doesn’t? They’re adorable. “He’s obsessed with the Dolphins and Dan Marino,” Snooki told People.
