Jersey Shore has a new fist-pumper in town as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave birth to her first child — a boy — early Sunday morning, Celebuzz can confirm.

The pint-sized Guidette welcomed her new baby with fiance Jionni LaValle just a little before 3 AM on Aug. 26 at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J.

Lorenzo Dominic LaValle has entered the world weighing 6lbs, 5oz,” a rep for Snooki tells Celebuzz. “Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!”

Snooki also took time to tweet about her son, writing to fans:

Snooki, 24, went in to  labor Saturday night.

“I have different priorities now,” she said when she first announced her pregnancy in the March issue of Us Weekly. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

LaValle, 24, added, “We are not going to screw this up.”

The couple met about two years ago during the third season of Jersey Shore. The first-time mom found out she was pregnant on New Year’s Eve earlier this year and LaValle proposed to his girlfriend two months later on Valentine’s Day, surprising her with a 5-carat diamond ring.

Back in May, Snooki told Celebuzz that her new baby boy will not be joining the rest of her Jersey Shore castmates at their famous Seaside Shore home.

“Oh, hell no!” Snooki quipped. “If anything, I’ll get my own place. That place is for partying and single people.”
