Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Snooki is back to her pint-size figure thanks to her post-baby diet and workout.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi shed 42 pounds and is showing off her slimmer frame in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

"When you have a baby, everything changes," Snooki tells Us Weekly, while also admitting that she now weighs 102 pounds.

"I lost it for me," she tells the magazine, "but I also wanted Jionni to know that I can be hot as a mom."

The 25-year-old reality star got engaged last year to Jionni LaValle.  The two still haven't announced a date for the wedding.

The new issue of Us Weekly hits newsstands on Friday.

Snooki Shows Off Her Baby Boy Lorenzo

Craig Barritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her little meatball bundle of joy Lorenzo Dominic grace the cover of People magazine this week.

In the exclusive interview, the Jersey Shore starlet not only shows off her newborn son with fiancee Jionni LaValle, but explains how her life is different since she found out they were expecting.

"When I got pregnant, everything changed," Snooki says.  "The partying is long gone.  I'm a new person."

The couple's son arrived on Aug. 26, after 24 hours of labor, Snooki says, and after countless headlines about her pregnancy and how it would affect her career.

MTV answered some of those questions for her, by announcing Jersey Shore's upcoming 6th season -- which kicks off on Oct. 4 -- would be its last, and by renewing Polizzi's spin-off, Snooki & Jwoww.

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.
