Not only is Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi expecting her first child with Jionni LaValle, but the happy couple are also engaged, People reports.

The "Jersey Shore" star, 24, and her now husband-to-be will welcome a baby later this year, a source confirms.

"I know he's the one, so I know the ring's gonna come soon," Polizzi told People on Jan. 12 -- although at the time, she had no idea a proposal was coming.

"Well, not soon-soon. He knows it should be big, cuz if it's small I'm saying no. Like, 'Get another ring!' "

A few weeks later, she also talked about her hopes for a family with her beau of a year and a half.

"I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant," Snooki said on "Good Morning America" on Feb. 2. She also denied being with child on her "Live! With Kelly" appearance, demurring: "Everyone thought I was pregnant. I'm like cool, I gained weight again."

To make it a three-peat, she also denied the news to Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live."

Polizzi's rep and MTV have not commented. The couple were photographed in Jersey City over the weekend, where LaValle moved boxes into Polizzi's home where she's filming a "Jersey Shore" spinoff.
