Sources say 'Jersey Shore' guidette Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi is pregnant, even though she's denied reports.

The 24-year-old is carrying her first child by boyfriend Jionni LaValle, and is roughly three months along.

This pregnancy has a lot of upside for Snooki:

  • Faster Buzz
  • Easier to win fights, since its taboo to punch a pregnant girl
  • Now she is supposed to be that size
  • When the baby grows up, she'll have a new drinking buddy

According to the NY Post, Snooki has already brokered a deal to announce the news on the cover of Us Weekly after she shopped the story to several celebrity magazines.

MTV is worried about how to manage the news, given that Snooki's starring in a Jersey Shore spin-off with Jenni "JWoww" Farley, which has begun shooting in New Jersey.

Snooki went on 'GMA' on Feb. 2 and claimed, "I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I'm not."

I think Snooki will be a great mom, and will use her life experience to lead her child down the right road . . . I also think its OK to kiss your cousin if they are super hott.
