Washington: Reality star Nicole ‘Snooki' Polizzi has revealed that she was scared to tell her father, Andy that she was pregnant. When reality TV star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi found out she was pregnant last winter, she was nervous it would affect her plans for a Jersey Shore spinoff with castmate Jenni "JWOWW" Farley.
"Oh, I was scared to tell my dad, of course!" says the 24-year-old, whose pregnancy was unplanned.
But these days her family is behind her 100 percent. "[My dad] is excited now. I think [my parents] are more excited than we are," Polizzi tells PEOPLE. "I'm their only child and this is going to be their [first] grandchild."
For now, Polizzi, whose MTV spinoff Snooki & JWOWW premiered Thursday, is at the beach, filming the latest season of Jersey Shore. However, the one-time wild-child is showing a more relaxed, serious side as she focuses on the health of her baby boy and her engagement to student Jionni LaValle.
