When she found out she was pregnant, her first thought was "'S--t, I've been drinking!' It was just after the 'Jersey Shore' reality star fist-pumped her way into 2012 in Vegas for New Year's Eve. For over two months, she has denied pregnancy rumors but now Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is getting paid through a deal with proud to announce via cover story in Us Weekly that she is 15 weeks pregnant -- AND ENGAGED!

I had a feeling that Snooks was definitely preggers, but I have to admit, her engagement to the father/boyfriend of one and a half years, Jionni LaValle, was quite a surprise. In their exclusive with Us Weekly both 24-year-olds want everyone to know that they are ready for the haters.

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

Jionni adds "We are not going to screw this up" -- but I have a feeling that either way, America will have the opportunity to see this entire situation pan out on their flat screen TVs from the comfort of their living rooms. I'm no Ms. Cleo, but look for Snooki, and especially MTV to milk this for all it's worth -- literally.

Do you think Snooki will make a good mom? Will Snooki and Jionni last? Will they be good parents?
