It must be pretty convenient to have a best friend before you are even born. It looks like Jenni “JWoww” Farley‘s and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi‘s daughters will have a built-in bestie when they enter the world.

Farley, 28, says she and best pal Polizzi’s offspring better learn to love each other no matter what.

“They f—ing better [get along],” Farley, who is due in early July, told PEOPLE Thursday at WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars premiere party in New York City. “They’re basically cousins. There’s no option. You’re sisters.”

And Polizzi, 26, shares Farley’s dream of a Jersey Shore next generation that’s attached at the hip.

“Me and Jenni see each other almost every single day,” says Polizzi. “I just feel like our kids are bound to be best friends and hang out all the time. They’re going to grow up and be like cousins. They’ll like each other, I hope.”
