Snooki & Jionni LaValle Expecting Second Child

Little Lorenzo’s going to be a big brother!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her fiance Jionni LaValle confirmed today that their adorable family is growing.

“Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests,” Polizzi, 26, tells Us Weekly.

The former Jersey Shore star is due in the fall — which also happens to be around the same time as her nuptials. The pair have been engaged since March 2012.

“I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other,” she tells Us. “We’ve waited long enough and cannot wait.”

Polizzi, who gave birth to her first child Lorenzo in August 2012, also took to her personal blog to do some “pregnancy venting.”

“I want to thank everyone for their congratulations and we can feel how excited you are for us! Jionni and I wanted to clear the air by saying we only kept our second pregnancy to ourselves for the health of our child and until we reached a reasonable time to let the world know,” she writes. “No matter how annoying it is to have our 2nd baby announced without our consent and when the time is appropriate, we could not be happier! Big things are happening this year with the wedding, moving into our dream house and having our second bambino or bambina!”

The third season of MTV’s Snooki & JWoww wrapped in January.
