It will be a boy for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and fiance Jionni LaValle.

"Can finally share the good news......we're havin' a BOY," Snooki posted on her Facebook page.

She first shared the news in the latest issue of In Touch magazine.  

"Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!" Polizzi, 24, told the magazine.

The "Jersey Shore" star admitted to the mag she was hoping for a girl, but she is still happy with the news.

"It's still my baby, no matter what," she said. "I'm excited either way!"

In a recent E! News interview, Snooki discussed her plans for dressing her future child.

"If it's a girl it will be animal print, if it's a boy, like Pauly D," she said in April.

The baby is due in September, according to MTV News. Polizzi and LaValle have been dating for a year and a half and are engaged.
