Polizzi says they are 15 weeks along.

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

“We are not going to screw this up,” adds Jionni. The two also say they found out “right after New Year’s” and Snooki was a little concerned because she’d been drinking over the holidays.

ABC News is also reporting that Snooki won’t film “Jersey Shore” this summer. She doesn’t want to be a pregnant lady living in that house, going to the clubs and living that lifestyle.

As for whether the baby will eventually get to watch her mom’s antics on “Jersey Shore,” Snooki says, “It’s going to happen either way. They can Google it and watch behind
our backs. So I’m going to talk to them about it. I’ll say, ‘This is
what not to do.”

She also says that they are going to wait to get married, so that she can lose the baby weight and the little one can be part of the ceremony.

So, mazel tov to Snooki and Jionni.
