Despite rarely being out of party mode, Nicole Polizzi -aka Snooki- has spoken of her plans to put her yet to be born child before anything else. That means that she will abandon her residency at the Jersey Shore house, and instead appearing on the sixth series of Jersey Shore from her new living space next door. This is so that she can concentrate on her upcoming step up to motherhood as well as organise and have her wedding to the baby's father JIONNI LAVALLE.

Her and LaValle's child, a boy, is due in September, so in the meantime she want to concentrate on preparing for motherhood and occasionally planning for the wedding - which is said to be taking place after the child is born. After that the reality star will look to appear in her own spin off of the show with sidekick JENNI "JWoww" FARLEY, which is believed to be called simply Snooki and JWoww.

Faced with the move of Snooki as well as MIKE "The Situation" SORRENTINO's newfound sobriety following a stint in rehab, the upcoming season will be looking at different ways to entertain, with jokes about Snooki's pregnancy and Mike's abstinence at the centre.

The Shore returns for its sixth and rumoured to be final (with original cast at least) series later this year, after the fifth season ended in March.
