Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi had major jitters before telling her dad about her unplanned pregnancy, People magazine reported.
"Oh, I was scared to tell my dad, of course!" says the 24-year-old reality star.
Polizzi, who found out she was pregnant with her first child last winter, was also anxious to break the news to her castmate Jenni "JWOWW" Farley.
She was nervous that her pregnancy would affect her plans for a “Jersey Shore” spinoff that she was scheduled to film with her best friend, according to People.
The MTV spinoff “Snooki & JWOWW” premiered Thursday.
Polizzi, who is due in September, is currently hard at work filming the sixth season of “Jersey Shore” in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. But don’t expect to see Snooki drinking heavily with her castmates or hitting the tanning salon.
The self-proclaimed guidette has toned down her partying ways this summer. She is focused on the health of her baby boy and her engagement to fiancé Jionni LaValle, she told People.
The pint-size star said that her family has been very supportive of her pregnancy.
"[My dad] is excited now. I think [my parents] are more excited than we are," Polizzi told People.
"I'm their only child and this is going to be their [first] grandchild."
