The world has just met its youngest guido.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave birth to a baby boy shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 26, at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J.

“The world just got another guido!!! Lorenzo Dominic LaValle has entered the world weighing 6 lbs, 5 oz. Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!” MTV reports.

The new mom announced the news via her Twitter: “I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD!”

News that the Jersey Shore star, 24, and her fiancé Jionni LaValle were expecting was officially announced in March. Polizzi revealed in May that she was having a boy.

Impending motherhood seemed to mellow the reality star, who slowed down her fast-paced lifestyle after learning she was pregnant.

“I guess [pregnancy] just made me more mature,” the Snooki & JWOWW star told reporters in April. “It’s different because now I’m not drinking. I’m usually partying and going to clubs, but pregnancy made me grow up a lot.”

In June, Snooki confessed to PEOPLE that she’d been afraid to tell her father she was pregnant, but once she broke the news, her family was thrilled.

“[My dad] is excited now. I think [my parents] are more excited than we are,” she said at the time. “I’m their only child and this is going to be their [first] grandchild.”
