Gym, Tanning, Laundry.. and Parenting? Is Snooki's daily regime about to change? Earlier this month, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi denied reports that she was preggers. Now, according to sources, the reality starlet is 3 months pregnant and has brokered a deal to break the baby news on the cover of Us Weekly, after shopping the story to numerous other celeb mags.

But why would she have lied to us if the truth was inevitable? Well, it's actually quite simple; Snooki plans on becoming "the next Kourtney Kardashian" and bankrolling the hell out of her mommy-to-be status. According to the New York Post, the baby in question is for Snooki's on again-off again boyfriend Jionni LaValle.

Not everyone is excited by the idea of Snooki being "with child." Sources say that MTV is up in arms on how to handle the news being that Snooki's entire brand is based off of her binge drinking, go-hard-or-go-home, party animal ways, which have recently been spun off into a new MTV reality show featuring Polizzi and 'Jersey Shore' cast mate, Jenni "JWoww" Farley.

MTV went into crisis mode after they found out,” said a source. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show. ” The untitled new show has just begun taping and focuses on the ladies’ relationship as friends and roommates — and whatever adventures come their way.

Snooki recently made headlines for dropping 20lbs from working out and taking a weight-loss supplement, and since she has begun filming her new show, all photos on set have shown her carrying large bags to hide her belly. Both MTV and Polizzi's rep have declined comment... for now.

An official announcement is expected at any time now.
