“Jersey Shore” star Snooki pregnant and engaged — It’s official! Despite previous, repeated lies that she was not pregnant, “Jersey Shore” star Snooki has finally confessed that she is indeed knocked up. In a cover story with Us Weekly, Snooki also finally admits she is engaged to the baby daddy, boyfriend Jionni LaValle.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has been repeatedly asked if she was pregnant over the past few months, but has denied she was knocked up every time. The New York Post proclaimed the Snooki pregnancy as official in February, despite Snooki still refusing to confess. Even while sporting a belly that looked like she’d swallowed a basketball, Snooki  appeared to take a sip of beer during a talk show interview recently when the hosts dared her to disprove she was pregnant.

The latest issue of Us Weekly features Snooki pregnant, showing off her baby bump in a pink dress. “A newly engaged Snooki opens up about her panic after drinking in the first month, how she nearly ruined Jionni’s sweet proposal and her doubtful future on the ‘Shore’,” the magazine cover proclaims. “Why I lied. OMG! I’m Pregnant!”

Snooki tells Us Weekly that her pregnancy has reformed her. “I have different priorities now,” the “Jersey Shore” star says. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready … We are not going to screw this up.”

In the interview, Snooki also admits that she drank a lot during the first month of her pregnancy, unaware that she was carrying. Her first thought on finding out was: “‘S–t, I’ve been drinking!’I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.”

The Snooki pregnant Us Weekly cover issue hits newsstands on Friday.
