Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi said that she’s hoping she has a gay son at some point in the future.
Snooki has connections in the LGBT community, and has long supported causes like marriage equality. Though she used to be known for her partying, arrests, excessive drinking and being punched in the face, the 25-year-old has recently turned her reality TV stardom into support for a number of good causes.
Additionally, she has settled down with a 9-month-old son, Lorenzo.
Both Snooki and her Jersey Shore gal pal Jenni “JWoww” Farley have been frequent supporters and contributors to the Trevor Project, a group that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBT youth.
Just in case there was any doubt that Snooki is a friend to the LGBT community, a comment she made at the Trevor Project’s New York City event Tuesday should erase all doubt.
She revealed that she would be proud to have a gay son someday.
“Me and Jenni weren’t exactly the best role models. But now that I’m a mom, I’m so grateful for The Trevor Project to support the LGBT youth so they have someone there for them because I’m praying I have a gay little boy one day.”
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, JWoww added a bit more to Snooki’s comments:
“We’re huge supporters of the LGBT community … so we would do anything to help them and to protect them. We feel like moms when it comes to our gays. We really do,” he said.
I wonder if Lorenzo is gay?
What do you think of Snooki’s involvement in the LBGT community, and her attempts to reform her party girl image?
