Page Six is reporting that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is expecting her second child with Jionni LaValle.
Snooki and LaValle became the proud parents of Lorenzo Dominic in August 2012.
The couple revealed news of their engagement and first pregnancy back in March 2012.
Although many had doubts about the reality television star's ability to be a good mother, she appears to have embraced motherhood with aplomb.
She moved out of the wild and crazy Jersey Shore party house when she became pregnant with Lorenzo, saying at the time "I'm definitely taking this pregnancy seriously and with all the bacteria and everyone having sex in the smoosh room its just not where a pregnant person or a baby should be."
During an August 2013 appearance on The View Snooki said she wants a large family:
"Right when I get married I want to have my second kid right away. I want like three more. I want like the Brady Bunch. I think it’s cause I’m an only child and I never really had anyone to play around with so I want a big family."

In December 2013, Snooki released a book titled Baby Bumps: From Party Girl to Proud Mama, and all the Messy Milestones Along the Way.
The book description sums up the star's initiation into motherhood perfectly:
The greatest thing Nicole Polizzi, aka “Snooki,” ever did was by accident. But her son, Lorenzo, was never a mistake. When she and her boyfriend, Jionni, found out she was knocked up, they weren’t married or engaged. She was only twenty-four and living with her parents—and she had zero baby experience. With a reckless, party girl TV persona to deal with, she had a lot to learn and discover in becoming a mother.

Snooki recently revealed that her wedding will have a Great Gatsby theme and she'll be wearing an "elegant ball gown" when she and LaValle tie the knot.
Snooki left Jersey Shore in 2012 but has kept busy since. She and Jennifer "JWoww" Farley starred in three seasons of the MTV reality series Snooki & JWOWW. The final episode of Season Three aired in January. So far there is no word if the series will be renewed for another season.
Snooki also participated in the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars. She and partner Sasha Farber were eliminated in October 2013, coming in eighth place.
She recently launched a clothing line and sells footwear, glasses, jewelry, and perfume in her Snooki Shop.
