Snooki is in labor, TMZ has confirmed, and the star is currently in the process of having her baby — expected to be a boy — at a New Jersey hospital.
Snooki’s labor was first made news to reality show fans everywhere via Twitter, where a friend of a patient at the hospital reported that Nicole Polizzi had been spotted there today, three days past her due date.
Gawker also was on the cusp of reporting Snooki’s labor, and has not yet updated the the Jersey Shore guidette has given birth to the baby. The site embedded a tweet, which has since been deleted along with the user’s Twitter account, from a person named Tiffy Willy, or @Tiff_Mae_Wilson.
The tweet originally read:
“Snooki is in labor y’all. My friends mom works at St. Barnabas in Livingston, NJ and Snooki is there having her baby lol”
Attempting to view the tweet that Gawker originally cited now returns a Twitter error message.
Snooki’s labor appears to have come at the time many moms reach when pregnancy has become more of a hassle than anything, and the Jersey Shore star’s most recent tweets have been in part complaining about being pregnant.
“Relaxing with my boo”
And also posted:
“I am a balloon ready to pop.”
The Jersey Shore star has been quiet since her last tweet a couple of hours ago, and no word on the mini-guido has yet hit the wires.
Snooki has said that she plans on naming the baby boy she’s expecting with fiance Jionni Lavalle “Lorenzo.”
