It's unclear just how much money changed claws before Snooki and her baby-daddy Jionni LaValle "opened their home" to People magazine (some estimate a cool $250 grand), but the tabloid was ultimately granted exclusive access to the newest member of Casa d'Meatball, Lorenzo Dominic.

Born August 26th after 24 hours of labor, Lorenzo was named after a kid LaValle knew growing up. "We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo," the 25-year-old told People. "[Snooki] loved it."

Speaking of love, Snooki tells the gossip mag the way she feels about Lorenzo is "a different kind of love that I never felt before." Aw.

As for the kind of love that made her a household name, Snooki says that's over now. "When I got pregnant, everything changed," she said. "The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."

New Snooki can be seen on the upcoming final season of Jersey Shore, as well as the second season of her own spin-off show Snooki & JWoww, which is currently in production.
