Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi has introduced her son Lorenzo Dominic to the world, with the new mum and her little meatball gracing the cover of People magazine.
Speaking to the magazine with her fiancé Jionni LaValle, Snooki said: "It's a different kind of love that I never felt before."
Polizzi also claimed that having a baby has made her grow-up, explaining: "When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I'm a new person."
The 24-year old also previously said of motherhood: "Being a mum is an amazing feeling! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad."
