MTV star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is currently in labor with her first child with fiancé Jionni LaValle.

A source close to the Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWoww star confirms to Celebuzz that the 24-year-old is at a New Jersey hospital, as first reported by TMZ. The couple are having a boy who they have said they're naming Lorenzo LaValle.

Polizzi and LaValle announced her pregnancy and engagement in March in a splashy US Weekly cover story.

"I have different priorities now," the star told the magazine. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."

LaValle, also 24-years-old, added, "We are not going to screw this up."

The couple met about two years ago during the third season of Jersey Shore. The pint-sized mom-to-be found out she was pregnant on New Year's Eve earlier this year. LaValle proposed to his pregnant girlfriend two months later on Valentine's Day when he gave her a 5-carat diamond ring.

Fans have been able to watch Snooki deal with the early days of her pregnancy on her MTV spinoff, Snooki & JWoww, which is currently airing. And they'll be able to see that experience continue on the upcoming sixth season of Jersey Shore premiering Thursday, Oct. 4 at 10 PM.

UPDATE 11:33 PM ET: Snooki's reps released a statement via MTV News: "Yes, Nicole has gone into labor," it reads. "While we understand she has fans everywhere - hospitals now included - we ask that her privacy be respected moving forward. We'll all get to meet her Italian Stallion newborn soon enough."

    I am a 45-year-old businessman. I own 2 businesses. Life is busy but I still feel lonely. I’ve been living alone since my wife passed away 2 years ago. Maybe I should get going. My friends suggest l take a try on ( rίch hοοk μρ cοm ) so I got a profile there under “denver45”. I would like to meet a quality woman to make my life more adventurous. If you are interested, maybe you can come to say hi.
