She hit the jackpot when she was plucked from that Chilean orphanage. Good for her!

Snookie certainly has blossomed in the past few years…she looks beautiful. Congrats.

heather on

Awe, she looks just like her brother!

Brandi on

Congrats to Snooki and Jionni on their new addition to the family:) She has really blossomed since having children…motherhood looks really good on her and it’s great to see how she has matured 💜

Guest on

I like her much better as a mother. She has never looked better and her kids are pretty adorable.

Tammy on

I think it’s so amazing what a 180 she did when she became a mom. I wish more people would grow up when they bring a new life into this world.

Leah on

I was never a fan of hers and I’m still not, however, motherhood seems to agree with her. Her daughter is beautiful!

Gramma2three on

Absolutely gorgeous!!

Lisy on

Beautiful. Congrats

Tiffanysue2 on

It’s hard to imagine this is the same woman from the show Jersey Shore!!! She looks so glamorous and seems to be a great mom.

Ru on

What a beautiful baby bundle of joy! Glad snooki has matured and settled down, but please STOP with the plastic surgery. Not a good look, and she doesn’t need it.

Momof3 on

Beautiful

tiff on

She seems like a really good mom. And the baby has a beautiful head of hair!

She is beautiful. Looks so much nicer than with the tanning. Beautiful little girl, lovely name. Congrats to the family!

Jay on

Adorable baby. She looks just like her big brother. I don’t know why people are so surprised about how Snooki is now. She grew up! If a camera followed us around in our late teens or early twenties most of us would look like clowns drinking and partying too much. Congrats to the family!!

Angelica on

Cute baby.

Karys on

Giovanna is BEAUTIFUL and Nicole looks great!!!!!!!!!

sharon on

%Though, I never watched the Jersey Shore. Nor, do I feel that Snookie has any talent, I must concede that she and her husband produce some of the “CUTEST” little ones on the planet! Gorgeous, dark hair, eyes, skin..Gorgeous!

Cricket2.0 on

Motherhood really agrees with her. It’s nice that she went the right way instead of more wrong once she got pregnant. She’s a Hollywood success story…who’d have thunk it.

postathread on

Congrats. She seems to be a good Mother. She was a young, single party girl on MTV, something MOST of us have done in our younger days. Only difference was it wasn’t documented, nor were we paid millions of dollars for it…Good for her and her beautiful family. Congrats. Nicole!

Sarah on

She is precious! I just love that name Giovanna, so elegant.

Lala on

She looks beautiful! So glad she ditched that awful hair, clothes, and makeup! Motherhood suits her very well!

Silvia on

Congratulations! Both look fantastic, and I love they chose real names for their kids.

rita on

Good for Nicole… She has a beautiful family..gorgeous children.. God Bless them.

Denise Erkeneff on

That pod looks clueless. Unfortunately, in 15 years will be clueless and no sustaining brain value .

templar on

she came long way

templar on

“That pod looks clueless”…you didn’t make it too far either

Jess on

She looks good!!

Ginger on

I watched Jersey Shore once for about 10 minutes. It was gross. At least she has appeared to have moved on.

Marky on

Whether YOU as an individual, like Nicole or not, she does have fans that care for her and her family. many of us are just impressed at what a turnaround she made from crazy party girl to loving mother, who is ready to get married. She has 2 lovely children, is taking good care of herself and her children, and she seems to really care about her fiance and be happy. I’m impressed with how much she has blossomed, and I’d rather hear about Nicole than many others being written about these days. Lovely baby and pretty mama! And for those talking about her MTV millions, she likely didn’t make nearly as much as you think. The only ones making the big bucks are people like the stars of BBT, reality “stars” actually make very small salaries, comparatively. As the mother of a child adopted from another country, Nicole is American, and likely identifies with the culture she was raised in–Italian. My child loves the food from her country of origin, but doesn’t think of herself as any different from the rest of the family she has had since she was a baby. Let it go, it’s obnoxious to make stupid comments about her being adopted.

peppy on

cute baby, cute mom, stupid HEADGEAR!

Nikki on

awwwwwwwwwww what chubby cheeks…

angie on

She looks great. Congrats to her and the family!

nc on

Congrats on such a beautiful baby girl, she looks just like her brother. I love the name Giavanna, it is such a nice Italian name. Many happy wishes to mom, dad and babies.

Diana on

I believe a congratulations are in order for you Nicole, and Jionni! There will always be people who will bring you down and call you hurtful things for being who you are. What they fail to realize is that you are a responsible mother of two, you are happy with your fiance, and you are a successful person with a bright future. I am very happy for you, and wish you all the best. Giovanni and Lorenzo are two very lucky children!

Traci on

She’s adorable

Loreene on

Adorable baby! Congratulations!

Anonymous on

Adorable baby! I wish Snooki would have shared a picture of her with her big brother, too!:)

mimi on

I am pleasantly suprised, that they children actually have normal, very pretty names. I did’nt expected that, but this is a good sign:)

Peggy Smith on

Such a cutie – and Snookie looks really pretty in this photo, too!

Ann on

Cute baby and mom looks fabulous also…..

Bella on

Mary on

She has 2 very cute kids. Glad she turned her life around.

R on

Congrats, she is beautiful!

Denise on

That baby is gorgeous. Love her hair. Snooki is looking wonderful these days.

SMSinTX on

Why continue having kids before you’re married?

Louise Sawyer on

Seems to be quite a few “fiance”s-post-baby…thankfully little Giovanna has a few years before she is face-down in a trash can inhaling her own vomit while the cameras roll…

cds on

@Tack-e; that baby is cute — she’s adorable! You must be on drugs.

Lila on

So precious! Congratulations!!

Dawn on

She is beautiful!

Kristina on

She is absolutely beautiful!

charlotte on

Baby is not really that cute, IMO, but Snooki seems to be embracing motherhood and happy and that is all that matters!

boohoobytch on

she’s a cockroach but her babies are precious

messiejessy on

I must say, Snooki seems to be one of those people who changed for the better once motherhood became part of her title. It’s a pleasant surprise that I hope she keeps up. I hope hers continues to be a story of proof, that sometimes people really can grow up and become wiser. She seems like she loves her children dearly and is trying to do right by them. Good for her!

Giovanna V on

What a beautiful name!😉

ann on

cute little on, they make cute kids. I like Snooky, she has grown up a lot

Louise Sawyer on

I must confess that:

–I never thought Madonna would become a parent
–I never thought Michael Jackson would become a parent
–I never thought Kim Kartrashian would become a parent
…and…
–I never thought The Snookster would become a parent [a tiny Chilean Bronxster who found TV fame face-down in a trash can of her own beer bile and vomit, yes; envisioning her as a sober mother who can orate her thoughts into coherent sentences, no]

I guess the moral of the story is: Sometimes life can surprise you…

Beth on

Aww, look at the cheeks on that baby. Love them! And Snooki looks very happy and really pretty. Motherhood suits her. You can always see it in the eyes in a picture when a new mom is happy and healthy and all is well. I know that in pictures of me with my daughter early on when she was a baby, I would always be smiling and to others, the pictures looked fine. But I could see in my own eyes, exhaustion, fear, and a bunch of other things. I had a rough time when my daughter was young. PPD for me, colic for her. Not a good combo. Anyway, it’s nice to see a young mother in photos looking so well. I know that’s a good sign!

Intheknow on

I always though this woman was a total ho.

Gemini on

Motherhood has brought out the best in her. Best Wishes.

Mul on

Congrats to Snooki. The baby is so cute!
