NEW YORK (AP) — Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi says she doesn't care what anyone says, she's ready to be a parent.
"I know I'm ready, I'm excited, I can't wait and this is gonna change my life and you know I'm totally 100 percent on board with everything that's going on," she said.
Polizzi is due in September with her first child with fiance Jionni LaValle. She was newly pregnant while filming her "Jersey Shore" spinoff with Jenni "JWoww" Farley, "Snooki and JWoww." It premieres Thursday on MTV at 10 p.m. EDT.
Polizzi, 24, and Farley, 26, sat down with AP to talk about critics, their friendship and babies.
AP: Snooki, what was it like filming your show while pregnant?
Polizzi: I was in my first trimester. Usually during that time you're very tired, you get sick a lot so I was just basically tired a lot and I was grumpy.
Farley: But, you've got to understand also this girl is used to sleeping until 3 o'clock in the afternoon from being hung over so it was just a different type of tired that I'm used to.
Polizzi: Yeah, instead of me being hung over I was just pregnant and resting.
AP: How do your boyfriend and fiance get along? (Farley is in a relationship with Roger Mathews.)
Farley: Roger and Jionni really like each other...
Polizzi: It's really easy that they get along because we're gonna be with them for the rest of our lives.
Farley: They have to get along because our babies are gonna have babies. We've decided. So I have to have a boy and she has to have a girl no matter how many kids we pop out so two end up together.
AP: What if they don't like each other in that way?
Farley: Just reproduce. Use a turkey baster...
