LOS ANGELES — Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of the hit reality television show “Jersey Shore” is in labor with her first child, a source close to the star said on Saturday.
Snooki, a pint-sized television personality, in March announced her pregnancy and her engagement to boyfriend Jionni LaValle.
The 24-year-old Chilean-born Snooki’s hard-partying antics on “Jersey Shore” were a major factor in making it a hit show.
As a result, she has become one of television’s most well-known reality stars. She authored a novel and was given a spinoff show with her “Jersey Shore” co-star Jennifer “Jwoww” Farley.
