'Snooki' Loses 42 Pounds After Having Baby Lorenzo

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.

The Snooki & JWoww star said that baby Lorenzo Dominic, to whom she gave birth last August, helped her transform not only her body, but her entire life.

"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.

Snooki and JWoww Talk Pregnancy, "Jersey Shore" and Spin-Off

Craig Barritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- MTV premieres its Jersey Shore spin-off Snooki & JWoww, starring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Thursday night at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

The Jersey Shore starlets stopped by Good Morning America on Wednesday to discuss their new show, which features the guidette BFFs moving in together in an apartment in Jersey City, N.J.

The series took a creative turn when Snooki got the surprise news she was expecting, and Polizzi admitted she hesitated telling her best friend as she knew the impact it could have on their relationship, and their show.

"I waited a little bit because I did want to move in with her, but I didn't want to scare her," Snooki said. "So at the last moment I'm like, 'I'm pregnant.  Okay, let's do this.'"

While Snooki is known for her booze-fueled Jersey Shore high-jinks, JWoww insists her little friend is on the straight and narrow.

"She definitely did a 180," JWoww told GMA.  "I don't want to say grew up the hard way, but kinda' did, just like overnight.  No more drinking, smoking, partying.  It was over with the day she found out she was pregnant...I've never seen someone embrace pregnancy the way that she has."

As for Jersey Shore, shooting on season six is currently underway in Jersey now that the girls' spin-off is in the can.  So what can fans expect?

"So far so good," JWoww said.  "But it's definitely a big wait and see."

Snooki added, "You never know, it's the shore."

Snooki: No Drinking, No Tanning, No Flats During Pregnancy

Craig Barritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is trading in GTL -- gym, tanning and laundry -- for breastfeeding and sobriety. The MTV reality star, who sat down with ABC's Juju Chang in an interview that aired on Monday's Good Morning America, is changing her ways as she prepares for the birth of her first child with fiancé Jionni Lavalle.

Snooki, who became notorious for her alcohol-fueled partying on the hit MTV show, said that she's sworn off drinking for the next few months.

"All of my friends are like, 'You can have a glass of wine.' I'm like, 'No. I refuse,'" Snooki told Chang. "Because, you know, I'm going to be that person that has a glass of wine and [the baby will] come out with three legs. I'm scared to even have caffeine."

The soon-to-be mom has also stayed away from the tanning booth and says that she's "embracing the paleness that's coming along with it." When asked if she plans to breastfeed, Snooki said, "It just looks so painful, but I definitely want to pump [my breast milk] because its the best nutrients for your baby."

But even though she has given up on dying her hair and partying while pregnant, she won't let go of her leopard prints, tight clothes and sky-high heels. "I'm only 24 and I'm pregnant. It doesn't mean I need to wear flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good," insisted Snooki.

MTV has yet to announce a premiere date for the sixth season of Jersey Shore.
