Snooki Shows Off Her Baby Boy: 'It's a Different Kind of Love'

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.

Snooki Shows Off Her Baby Boy: 'It's a Different Kind of Love'

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.
