In an interview on ‘Live! With Kelly,’ Snooki talks baby with her BFF JWoww. The reality star opened up about denying it for so long, what her biggest fear during birth is, and why she definitely wants the drugs in the delivery room!

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, 24, and fiance Jionni LaValle, are expecting their first child together – a boy they plan to name Lorenzo – in September, and could not be more nervous and excited. She came on Live! With Kelly on July 17, and opened up about being pregnant, covering it up for so long, and what her biggest fear during birth is!

It was the 4-foot-9 reality star ‘s first TV interview since announcing her pregnancy in March.

“Gmoning tweedos! Lorenzo is popping out today mad hard @LiveKelly & Today Show this morning!” she Tweeted before going on the show.

The last time the pint-sized guidette visited Kelly in studio was in February, when she lied about being pregnant, despite all of the rumors. After Kelly Ripa replayed the clip of Snooki’s denial, the Jersey Shore star joked, “I’m a good liar.”

Now open about her pregnancy, Snooki, clad in a sparkle black dress with a big pink flower in her hair, bragged that she has only gained 20 pounds with most of the weight in her stomach.

Although excited, Nicole admitted, “I’m scared, I don’t think anyone is ever prepared.”

The star of Snooki & JWoww revealed that the birth will not be on TV, but the time leading up to it and the time after she will share with the world. Her man Jionni, however, will not be allowed to look, um, “down there.”

“I don’t want him seeing what’s going on down there, he would never touch me again,” she said. The star admitted that she is very sensitive to pain, so she does not want to feel what’s going on when she’s delivering her baby boy.

“I am getting drugs, I am getting an epidural,” Snooki confessed.

Not one for holding her tongue, Snooki asked Kelly, who has three kids with husband Mark Consuelos, if she had ever pooped while giving birth! No surprisingly, Kelly said she didn’t.

BFF, costar, and soon-to-be godmother J Woww joked that, “Nicole hungover and Nicole pregnant are the same person.”

At the end of the interview, Kelly presented an adorable gift to the mom-to-be — a onesie with a zebra print tie on it! How perfect!

who cares she’s not famous and epi’s are known to slow down labor so she’s an idiot if you have no complications during pregnancy then those drugs aren’t needed. it’s one thing if Lorenzo is breech so has to be delivered by c-section it’s another if she’s being a self richeous pig which is probably more likely

@ Courtney…. you are the idiot. If Snooki wasnt famous you wouldnt be commenting on hollywood life about her or referring to her baby by name like you know her…. She may not be famous for all of the right reasons but she is… And taking advantage of the advanced medication available to help pregnant woman deliver more comfortably doesnt make her a self RIGHTEOUS pig it makes her pretty freaking normal! A lot of woman would think you are crazy and selfish for not getting medicated while giving birth bc of the added stress being in so much pain adds to the delivery of baby.

Crunchy Mom Myth. Studies go both ways. An epidural can even speed up labor because pain and fear can slow the process down. Being relieved of that pain can help a woman relax and dilate quicker. This is why people need to choose what’s best for them and not feel pressured by “know it all” idiots.

I’ve had both a drug-free delivery and an epidural delivery. Good for Snooki for getting the epidural… my second birth was so much smoother and enjoyable because of it!

Epidurals were invented for a reason, The medicine is there so get one! I have nothing wrong with women getting them. Thay are the ones delivering not me.

Most women worry about the things that rarely happen. Good for her for taking the epidural. It’s makes the memory a nicer one.

Good for her. So many celebrities brag about how brave they are for not getting an epidural. Snooki is part of the 55% of American women that choose to take advantage of modern medicine.
