The speculation has been going on for a little while now without official word from Snooki herself.  That has all changed with an interview with Us Weekly where the "Jersey Shore" star has confirmed that she's not only pregnant, but engaged to the baby-daddy Jionni LaValle, and is a changed woman,

"I have different priorities now. I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."

LaValle put a $55,000, 5 carat ring on her finger to seal the deal, and apparently Snooki had no idea it was coming. No word yet on a wedding date, but Snooki revealed that she is 15 weeks pregnant, finding out just after New Year's, admitting that the timing of the pregnancy scared her,

"'S---, I've been drinking!' I was worried. It was  New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy,"
