Snooki poses with her newborn for the PEOPLE cover shoot in New Jersey on September 1, 2012.
Look out, world: It’s the first “Jersey Shore” baby, and his generous head of hair is already primed for a blowout! (Cheers to a long life without comb-overs, kid.)
Along your Friday morning commute, you’ll want to make a brief stop at the newsstand to pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, which contains an oooh/aww-worthy photo album of Snooki‘s child, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. In the meantime, the magazine has graciously allowed us to provide you this sneak peek, and golly, it’s a beauty. Not since Maci Bookout‘s son Bentley was born on “16 and Pregnant” have we seen such adooowable cheeks! And will you just look at those wittle, itty-bitty fingers?…Er, sincerest apologies for the baby talk–our biological clock must’ve just taken us hostage.
Enzo has some work to do on his tan, but we can already see a strong resemblance to both of his blissed-out parents. On the one hand, he’s got Nicole’s pouty lips and skinny legs. But then again, that just-chillin’ demeanor comes direct from Jionni’s DNA. Watch out, mini-guidettes of the world! What this gorilla-in-training lacks in stature, he surely makes up for in handsomeness. And we hear his body fat percentage has already dropped after some intense bicep curls with his pacifier!
+ So, who do you think Enzo looks like more at this point: Mom or Pop? Take the poll, check out the MTV News video below and tune in Thursday at 6 p.m. for our “Jersey Shore” pre-VMA special, “Gym, Tan, Look Back,” which will include footage from the final season.
