According to The New York Post, Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is pregnant. The 24-year-old denied reports earlier in the month, but is said to be "roughly a few months along." The father of the child is believed to be her boyfriend Jionni LaVal.

Snooki apparently wanted to delay the announcement until she snagged an exclusive deal with a celebrity magazine. Word is that she has done just that, inking a deal with Us Weekly.

The MTV folks aren't commenting but according to the Post, execs at the network are in panick mode because a pregnancy means big changes in the already in-production Jersey Shore spin-off that stars Snooki and JWoww.
