Is Snooki's Baby Daddy Cheating?

Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's fiance Jionni LaValle is secretly hooking up behind the pregnant Jersey Shore star's back with his ex, according to The National Enquirer.

The tabloid reports "blockbuster candid photos" that will blow LaValle's cover and "will break Snooki's heart."  The pics purportedly show 24-year-old LaValle with his ex Erica Wecksler, a Jersey-born fashion merchandiser.

"Poor little Snooki is caught up in a love triangle that she knows nothing about!" a "close source" told The Enquirer

Wecksler reportedly told a friend, "We were seriously hooking up all sum­mer and Jionni considered me to be his girlfriend -- not Snooki!"

As Jersey Shore fans know, Snooki was seen cheating on LaValle with cast mates Deena Cortese and Vinnie Guadagnino -- and was rumored to have hooked up with The Situation -- all while seeing LaValle.

However, Snooki's rep and the star herself are denying the Enquirer report.  Via Twitter, Snooki said, "Tabloids are so desperate and disgusting," and repeatedly praised her man via the microblogging service Wednesday.

Snooki Confirms Pregnancy, Engagement to Jionni LaValle

Kotinsky/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It’s official.  Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant and engaged, and the breakout star of MTV’s Jersey Shore is vowing that her days of peeing on porches are over.

She also said she won’t film any Jersey Shore this summer.

In an interview with Us Weekly magazine, Polizzi said, “If anything, I’ll visit the shore.  I’m not living in that house being pregnant.  I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club.  It’s disgusting.”

Polizzi, 24, and the unborn baby’s father, Jionni LaValle, also 24, ended weeks of speculation by opening up to the magazine about their news, discussing the baby’s gender, Polizzi’s morning sickness and weird food cravings, and how they plan to parent.

Polizzi had been denying the pregnancy rumors for weeks, and told the magazine she didn’t want to share the news before the end of her first trimester.

“I wanted to make sure the baby is OK.  Things can go wrong, like a miscarriage.  It was my business, and I wasn’t ready to tell,” she said.

Even though the baby wasn’t planned, she and LaValle said they were ecstatic when they found out, and went through five pregnancy tests to be sure.

But not everyone was as happy about her impending motherhood, she revealed.

“My dad was upset.  He said, ‘You have your whole life ahead of you.’  We didn’t talk for a week.  He came around eventually, and now he can’t wait for the baby.  My mom is so happy for me,” Polizzi told Us.

The pair are split on the gender of the baby -- he apparently wants a boy and she wants a girl.

“She wants a cheerleader, and I want an athlete,” LaValle said, according to the article.  “If it’s a girl, she is not dating until she is 18.”

To which Polizzi replied: “I’m letting her date.  I started dating at 13.”

The pair don’t plan to wed for at least another year to give Polizzi time to lose weight and for the baby to be part of the wedding.
