Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was so determined to keep her pregnancy secret until the time was right that she even managed to hide the news from her BFF Deena Cortese.
“I actually just found out when everybody else did. That’s when she decided to tell everyone,” Deena told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show today. “I think she was waiting because it’s bad luck, she was saying. I found out about when you guys did.”
But she doesn’t mind not being kept in the loop – in fact, she’s thrilled for her pal. “I actually think Nicole is going to be a great mom,” she says. “She’s a very genuine, nice person, her heart is always in the right place. She always puts people before her. So I think she’s going to be a great mom. She’s going to love that little meatball!”
Still, she must know a few secrets that the rest of us haven’t been privy to – like whether the baby will be a guido or guidette?
Nope. “I don’t know, actually,” Deena told Ryan. “I don’t think she can even tell yet – I don’t think she’s far enough along.”
But when Snooks and fiance Jionni LaValle do welcome their new addition this summer, “I’m going to spoil that little guy!”
The season finale of Jersey Shore airs next week, and Deena is hoping that at the reunion show that follows, “Nicole can maybe stop by and we can throw a baby shower.”
Has all this excitement put any ideas into Deena’s head? Not a chance. While she says that marriage and kids have always been Snooki’s dream and “I’m happy for her,” she’s in no rush to settle down herself.
“I’m a little older than Nicole, but I think I’d rather wait a couple more years until I pop out a meatball,” she quips. “I can’t even take care of myself – how can I take care of a baby right now?”
Maybe it’s just as well. We wouldn’t want the show to turn into Jersey Playdates anytime soon!
