The rumors are now confirmed: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is indeed pregnant, and she’s also engaged to her boyfriend, Jionni LaValle.

Her rep tells CNN, “Nicole is thrilled to finally be able to share her happy news with her fans.”

Snooki, 24, tells Us Weekly that she’s 15 weeks along, having found out about the pregnancy after the New Year’s holiday.

The reality star admits to the magazine that her initial thought when she learned the news was “‘S***, I’ve been drinking!’ I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.”

But for those who are concerned about how Snooki will reconcile being pregnant with her partying lifestyle, she says that she’s prepared to make some changes.

“I have different priorities now,” she says. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

Her fiance sounds like he is, as he tells Us Weekly, “We are not going to screw this up.”
