In case you missed the big news, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and fiance Jionni LaValle welcomed a baby boy into the world in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The child’s name is very Italian and normal: Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. Contrary to previous theories, the arrival of Snooki’s offspring did not immediately bring on the apocalypse. Indeed, little Lorenzo arrived at a weight of 6 pounds, 5 ounces without the accompaniment of four horsemen. And, per the tweet below, Snooki is clearly very proud of her little boy. Maybe, dare we say it, she might wind up being a good mom? (Associated Press)

Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad. @jlavalle
