Snooki welcomes baby girl Giovanna Marie

2014-09-29 09:31

Los Angeles - Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi has given birth to a baby girl.

The former Jersey Shore star and fiancé Jionni LaValle - with who she already has two-year-old son Lorenzo - welcomed "perfect" daughter Giovanna Marie into the world on Friday.

Snooki shared the happy news on her Twitter page, posting: "So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect (sic)"

Snooki also sharad a photo on Instagram of all the flowers she received. "Love all of my flowers from my family and friends ???? Giovanna says thank you!!"

The 26-year-old star's best friend, Jenni 'JWoww' Farley - who welcomed her daughter Meilani into the world two months ago - has already been to visit her pal and the new arrival.

Posting a picture on her website of her visit to the hospital, with Snooki cradling the baby in her arms, she wrote: "My best friend gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl ... Giovanna is a stunning 6.7lb perfect angel!(sic)"

JWoww recently admitted Snooki had been acting like a character in The Exorcist during her second pregnancy.

She said: "I hated my pregnancy. They say [baby girls] take your estrogen so your hormones are more depleted.

"I don't know if that's true or not because I never had a boy, but I'm looking at Nicole - she loved the pregnancy with Lorenzo. This one, I'm scared of her. It's like The Exorcist."
