Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi's little meatball is a star already.
Just six days after his birth, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle posed with his mother for a People magazine cover photo shoot. The photo, which appeared online today, shows the newborn sleeping next to a smiling Snooki.
Polizzi, 24, told the magazine her life has changed drastically, and she is not the same MTV party girl that fans of the show have come to love.
“When I got pregnant, everything changed,” she said. “The partying is long gone. I'm a new person.”
In July, Snooki told Newsday Westchester she hoped Lorenzo would have a childhood like hers.
“I definitely want him to grow up and have a normal childhood like I did,” she said. “I'm not really sure if I'm going to have him grow up on reality TV yet.”
But whether Lorenzo grows up in the limelight, he is sure to be stylish along the way. For his public debut, the baby sported booties studded with the colors of the Italian flag, perhaps taking a style cue from his “Jersey Shore” uncle Pauly D.
In another photo of the newborn posted on MTV.com, Snooki and her fiance Jionni LaValle smiled holding little Lorenzo, who wore a checkered onesie.
