Snooki – real name Nicole – shared her baby news via Twitter, telling fans: "So happy to let you all know we had our beautiful daughter this morning. Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7lbs. Full head of black hair and perfect."


This is the second child for Snooki and Jionni. They are also parents to son Lorenzo, born in 2012.

Just last night, Snooki posted a lengthy message to her official website explaining all the ways she'd tried to bring on labour because she was in discomfort and felt like she'd been "pregnant forever".

Snooki said she was feeling "super pregnant" on 15 August.

A frustrated Snooki said she'd tried going to the gym, being active, eating spicy food – which was a struggle as she hates spice – everything she'd heard might help, but none of it did.

"I'm doing a lot of stuff to get this labour process started and I'm Googing it on the internet and half of that s**t doesn't work because I already tried it a hundred million times and it's not working… I'm still pregnant and I feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever."

The star also lamented: "I'm at that point where I can't move, I can't sleep, I'm waking up 20 times throughout the night, rolling out of bed, waddling to the bathroom and prayng that my mucus plug falls out and my water breaks and I'm just ready to go at this point. I don't care, I just wanna go!"

Looks like Baby Giovanna heard!

Congrats to Snooki and Jionni!

Snooki's happy baby news comes two months after her best friend Jenni 'Jwoww' Farley gave birth to her first child, also a baby girl.

Jwoww and fiancé Roger Mathews welcomed their daughter Meilani on 14 July - and, of course, bestie Snooki has been spending plenty of time with the newborn. No doubt Meilani and Giovanna will grow up to be firm friends!
