Jionni LaValle might be a father if his girlfriend, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant, but there’s evidence that suggests. However, he seems more than just her boyfriend because now she is wearing an engagement ring.
Not only did a source tell People that Jionni LaValle and Snooki were engaged, just hours after that story broke, Polizzi was photographed and images showed her wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. It certainly was on the right finger and the “right size.”
Earlier, Snooki said that although she felt LaValle was “the one,” he had better give her a ring of the appropriate size. On Jan. 12, she told People, “I know he’s the one so I know the ring’s gonna come soon. Well, not soon-soon. He knows it should be big, cuz if it’s small I’m saying no. Like, ‘Get another ring!’ ”
A source told People that LaValle picked out the ring himself.
Snooki and her BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley were seen filming their spinoff show in Jersey City, N.J. The two took their dogs to the K9dergarten as part of the episode, and it was reported that Snooki removed the heavy finger bling as the day wore on. It’s unclear if that was to hide it.
LaValle is, of course, a lot more under the radar than his reported fiancee, but according to People, he’s not in it for the fame. That comes straight from Snooki herself, who told People a year ago that LaValle “doesn’t give a [expletive] about [celebrities]. He said, ‘I don’t want to be in that world’ … He’s trying to be a teacher.” It’s interesting, then, that he would choose to select Polizzi, 24, as his life will be in the limelight no matter what HE wants.
So, why no announcement over a) the pregnancy, b) the engagement? It was reported earlier that Snooki had brokered a deal to announce the news on the cover of Us Weekly. That headline may announce both an engagement and the pregnancy in one fell swoop.
