Snooki shocked the world in March when she unveiled the news that she was pregnant. Now, after spending at least 11 hours in labor in a hospital in New Jersey, Snooki and fiance Jionni LaVelle have a huge announcement: It’s a boy!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, best known for her role on MTV’s hit reality show Jersey Shore, gave birth to Lorenzo Dominic LaValle just before 3AM Sunday (Aug. 26) morning. MTV News reports that the baby was delivered at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J.

“We couldn’t be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy,” MTV said in an official statement. “We look forward to Lorenzo’s first trip to the Jersey Shore and can’t wait to see his first animal print onesie.”

“The world just got another Guido!!!” a representative for Snooki told MTV. “Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!” According to the rep, Lorenzo Dominic came into this world weighing six pounds, five ounces.

Twitter has obviously exploded with reactions from everyone following the story. In fact, Snooki offered her own reaction to being in labor with a simple one-word Tweet followed by a photo of a lion, tiger and leopard: “Fierce.”

Around 9AM, Snooki hopped back on Twitter to share her thoughts on her new baby boy.
