TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A rep for reality TV celeb Snooki confirms she has gone into labor with her first child.

The MTV "Jersey Shore" star Nicole Polizzi and her fiance Jionni LaValle confirmed her pregnancy in March. They are expecting a boy and plan to name him Lorenzo. MTV did not say where Snooki was hospitalized or when she went into labor.

MTV has said it's bringing "Jersey Shore" back for a sixth season, with Snooki as part of the action, but has declined to offer specifics on how big a part Snooki will play in the show about hard-partying Italian-American friends.
