Motherhood doesn’t always have to change everything.
Even though Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is positively smitten with her newborn son, Lorenzo, she’s not about to give up her pre-pregnancy ways entirely.
The Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWOWW star has been faithfully sharing her life as a mom with her Twitter followers, and today she revealed, “Omg just went tanning since like a year ago.” She credits her own brand of lotion with helping her reclaim her glow.
She also posted a shot of her feet in a pair of towering wedges with the caption “Back in the shoe game.” Other pics of her hands and feet shows that she’s made time in her schedule to keep her nails in photo-op shape – even adorning them with her son’s first initial.
While other new moms consider themselves lucky to be able to get out of pajamas sometime before 2 P.M., Snooki makes it a point to dress well (her signature leopard print figures prominently, of course), with her hair and makeup all in place.
Really, would you expect anything less?
Still, Snooki hasn’t entirely returned to her former lifestyle.
The once hard-partying girl is in no hurry to resume her nights of drinking till all hours. She’s breastfeeding – and pumping bottles – so she’s off the booze until Lorenzo’s older. To a fan who told her to enjoy a margarita for Labor Day, she said, “I’m not yet, I’m breast feeding. But have one for me!”
And rather than hanging out with her Shore housemates, Snooki’s idea of a great night is to hang at home with her baby and her fiance, Jionni LaValle. Her tweets this past week have included: “Ugh I love napping with my little man!”, “Movie time with Jionni! I love my man <3″, “Rockin Lorenzo’s cradle and rubbing Jionni’s back…putting both my boys back to sleep” and “Cuddle time with Lorenzo and Jionni!!!”
In a celeb world that has seen so many sad splits, it’s nice to see a happy family in the making.
Keep the tweets coming, Snooki!
