On Tuesday, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi gave the world the very first glimpse of son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, who was born Sunday in Livingston, NJ.
Escorted in a wheelchair, the Jersey Shore star, 24, protectively held her drowsing baby boy (whose dad is her fiance, Jionni LaValle), currently sporting a full head of jet-black hair, just like his mom!
Snooki and Lorenzo (6 lbs, 5 oz. and measuring 18 3/4 inches at birth) then arrived home at Lavalle's East Hanover, NJ house -- where adorable, stork-themed welcome home decorations festooned the lawn!
Prior to her return home, Snooki kept her Twitter followers apprised of her first days as a mom. "I love nursing my little man!" she announced when asked if she's been breastfeeding. "All the pain and anxiety is so worth it. Xoxo. Lorenzo is even cuter today. I'm so lucky."
The former party girl doesn't even mind the brand-new rigors of parenthood. "We don't sleep anymore. We just take lots of naps," she tweeted. "[I don't care], as long as I'm staring at my handsome son."
