Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi just welcomed her third child with husband Jionni LaValle!

This new baby meatball makes them a family of five.

The baby boy, Angelo James, was born at 2:30 a.m. on May 30, 2019. Snooki told People, “So thrilled to welcome baby Angelo into our little family! He is so sweet and a spitting image of Lorenzo as a baby. Jionni and I can’t wait to see how being outnumbered turns out!”

Snooki and Jionni got engaged in March 2012, a few months before they welcomed their son, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. Lorenzo was born on August 26, 2012.

Two years later, the happy parents had their second child, Giovanna Marie LaValle, who was born on September 26, 2014.

A few months later, on November 29, 2014, Snooki and Jionni finally tied the knot.

Snooki and Jionni absolutely loved being parents to their two little ones, but they always expressed that they wanted another child. On November 22, 2018, Snooki took to Instagram to announce that she was expecting her third baby.

Snooki announced that she was expecting her third baby on November 22, 2018, with this adorable photo of her children. “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” she wrote.

About a month later, the 31-year-old shared this photo, announcing that baby No. 3 would be a boy! Snooki and her kids were all very excited to welcome a baby brother to the family.

Of course, every pregnancy comes with its hardships. Snooki dealt with morning sickness throughout her first trimester (which is tough with two young kids in the house).

A few days after announcing the sex of her baby, Snooki shared her first bump picture of the pregnancy. She wrote “MAWMA” as the caption.

Snooki’s daughter, Giovanna, was so excited about becoming a big sister that she practiced with her stuffed animals.

She even made up songs and sang to the baby every morning! Giovanna is definitely going to be a great big sister.

As her pregnancy progressed, Snooki continued to share updates with her fans. Her family was not only excited about the new baby but also really supportive throughout her pregnancy.

Lorenzo and Giovanna even went out to buy their mama ice cream in the middle of winter (with an adult, of course).

And Snooki isn’t the only Jersey Shore star with young kids. Her BFF JWoww has two kids, Meilani and Greyson, and her fellow meatball Deena just welcomed her first baby, son CJ.

Some of the Jersey Shore guys are parents, too! Pauly D has a daughter named Amabella, and Ronnie has a daughter named Ariana with his on-again/off-again girlfriend Jen Harley.

Snooki’s new baby boy is the latest addition to the new generation of Jersey Shore.
