After what seems like nine months of speculation, Nicole Snooki Polizzi has confirmed to Us Weekly magazine that she is pregnant and engaged.

If anything, I'll visit the shore. I'm not living in that house being pregnant. I don't want to be one of those moms who's pregnant in a club. It's disgusting, said the 24-year-old reality star to the magazine.

Snooki and her unborn baby-daddy, Jionni LaValle, 24, are said to have wanted to wait to share the news until the end of her first trimester.

I wanted to make sure the baby is OK. Things can go wrong, like a miscarriage. It was my business, and I wasn't ready to tell, she said.

According to Albert Lee, executive editor of Us, Snooki first thought she was pregnant shortly after New Year's Eve, where she partied in Las Vegas with LaValle.

The week after that Snooki noticed she was a week late and she actually told us that she always carries a pregnancy test with her, and whenever she's late, she does a test just to make sure, Lee on Good Morning America.

Snooki and LaValle were so surprised by her pregnancy that they told the magazine she took five pregnancy tests to be sure.

Snooki relayed back to Us that her father couldn't even believe the news of her pregnancy. My dad was upset, said Snooki. He said, 'You have your whole life ahead of you.' Even though her father came around, the two didn't talk for a week.

The two don't plan to wed before the baby comes. The reality star revealed it won't be until at least another year, saying she needs time to lose weight after delivery and wants to give the baby a chance to be part of the wedding.
