Wearing Italian flag booties and a onesie with a chain printed on it, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle and his mama, Snooki, grace the cover of this week’s People. Not that you’re really paying attention to his outfit at first, ’cause that mug of his is distractingly cute. Which makes up for the fact that most of the quotes Snooki gives about motherhood sound exactly like every other magazine interview with a first-time mother.
“It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” she told the magazine. But she also made a promise that pretty much explains why the Jersey Shore is ending at just the right time, following the upcoming season: “When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
Fiance Jionni LaValle and Snooki also explained the origins of their son’s name: Jionni knew a kid in his hometown named Lorenzo, and Dominic is the name of Snooki’s late uncle. “I did it for my dad,” she said.
Another adorable photo of the happy family is available on MTV News.
