The photo shoot for Snooki and baby Lorenzo’s cover image took place just six days after the 6 pound, 5 ounce bundle of joy arrived in the world.
“It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” the 24-year-old first-time mom told People, adding that she labored for a full 24 hours before Lorenzo Dominic LaValle was born.
As for baby’s name pick, new dad Jionni LaValle shared, “We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo. She loved it.”
Lorenzo’s middle name was chosen to honor the reality star’s late uncle. ”I did it for my dad,” she explained.
