Barely a day old, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle is already the talk of New Jersey – and everywhere else, it seems.
“Thank you all for your love and support!! Lorenzo loves you guys already!” the baby boy’s mom, Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wrote on Twitter late Sunday after messages of congratulations came pouring in throughout the day.
Snooki’s MTV castmates were also stoked by the news. “I Love It This Time A Yearrr When Baby Lorenzo’s Here !!!!! Congrats @snooki And @JLaValle !!! #BabyBlowout,” Paul “DJ Pauly D.
Added Mike “The Situation: “Congrats to Nicole and jionni on their healthy baby boy! All the best!”
Jenni “JWoww” Farley, who stars with Snooki in the Jersey Shore spin-off show Snooki & JWoww, wrote: “So proud of @snooki and @JLaValle! Lorenzo is the cutest baby I ever seen. Love him already.” Snooki replied: “Aw thank you auntie!”
Meanwhile, Lorenzo’s dad, Jionni LaValle, reflected on the meaning of the day for him, likening it to glory days past.
“ill never forget old high school memories or the vacations I been on with my boys,” he wrote. “I will also never forget 8/26/12 the day my son was born!”
The love fest ended on a more contemplative note. “Post birth isn’t so comfy and glamorous,” writes Snooki. “But my son is FABULOUS.”
