The couple is ecstatic about their new daughter. Back in May, the Snooki & Jwoww stars announced they were expecting a little girl. She also told ABC News about Jionni's comical reaction to having a daughter!
"I was so excited. I looked at Jionni's face and he turned white," she told ABC News at the time. "He's very excited but, of course, nervous like every father having a daughter is. They're more complicated!"
Although the couple jokingly expressed little girls are a bit more complicated, they're looking forward to the challenge! Back in March of 2012, the famed pint-sized reality star spoke with US Weekly about how her priorities had changed with her new domesticated lifestyle.
"I have different priorities now," she told the publication before the arrival of her first child. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and Jionni's ready.
