Instead of opting for a private birth, Jersey Shore star Snooki invited MTV cameras into the labor room to film the intimate moment.
And while they were kicked out shortly before little Lorenzo made his first appearance, Snooki’s fiancé Jionni LaValle captured the entire birth on camera for an upcoming episode of Jersey Shore spin-off show Snooki & JWOWW.
A source told RadarOnline: “Viewers will see Snooki in labor and the camera crew was kicked out as she was about to give birth. However, Snooki’s fiance, Jionni LaValle, was using a personal camcorder and he carried on filming.
“Lorenzo was ready for his proud parents to show him off to the world and was filmed hours after the birth. It was done very tastefully and with respect to Snooki and other patients at the New Jersey hospital.”
Snooki, 24, was spotted leaving hospital yesterday – two days after giving birth to her son.
The star, wearing a bright pink spotted dress, was wheeled out of the St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, with her little bundle of joy in her arms.
The sighing came as Snooki today tweeted the first snap of herself since giving birth in the early hours of Sunday morning.
She was snuggled up in a leopard print blanket – and she also shared a picture inside her little man’s nursery, which features his name spelled out over his leopard print changing table, captioning it: “My world.”
Snooki added: “Lorenzo is even cuter today. I’m so lucky.”
It also seems Snooki has had a change of heart about breastfeeding.
After expressing her concerns about it just months before giving birth – she shared today how she loves nursing baby Lorenzo.
The revelation came after one fan asked her on Twitter: “Are you nursing? If so shout it out proud!”
Snooki duly replied: “I love nursing my little man!”
Back in June Snooki told Good Morning America that she was nervous about the idea of breastfeeding.
“I’m just scared. My friend did and she said it was so painful…but I definitely want to pump because it’s the best nutrients for the baby.”
But somewhat apprehensively she added: “It’s kind of like you’re a cow and you’re just milking.”
But since giving birth over the weekend to her son, Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, has had a change of heart.
“All the pain and anxiety is so worth it. Xoxo,” she went on.
Earlier Snooki shared a picture of herself on Twitter, writing: “Snuggled up in my leopard print robe. I’m legit an old lady. Rockin the diapers with that old lady gangsta lean.”
Snooki had managed to glue on her huge fake eyelashes, apply eye make-up and brush her hair into her trademark beehive, however.
“Hardly any sleep but SO worth it!” the diminutive Guidette added, although she has also found plenty of time to update her Twitter page since the birth.
She has not yet posted any photos of the newborn as she has probably negotiated a lucrative deal for a first look at the tot with a magazine.
“I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD!” Snooki said on Sunday
Nicole Polizzi and fiancé Jionni LaValle had their first child shortly before 3:00 a.m. on Sunday at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey.
A Snooki representative told MTV: “The world just got another Guido! Lorenzo Dominic LaValle has entered the world weighing 6 pounds, 5 ounces. Nicole, Jionni and Enzo are doing great!”
Snooki took a break from tweeting during the birth, but was soon back updating her fans saying: “Post birth isn’t so comfy and glamorous. But my son is FABULOUS.”
