Let’s be honest: Anyone who’s ever watched Jersey Shore can’t help but wonder what kind of mother Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will be.
Snooki, 24, said she’s always known she’d be a good mom. “I can’t wait to meet my kid!” she said in V‘s Americana Issue (on stands May 10). “Everyone will be surprised to see a different side of me. I’m loving, caring, sensitive, protective and very maternal, no matter what people might think.”
The MTV reality TV star says she’s used to people having low expectations of her. “I’ve been bullied my whole life. In high school, me and my girlfriends were freshmen and we were all pretty girls in cheerleading and stuff, so the older girls would bully us because all of their guys want to hang out with us.”
Snooki admits she has “a lot of haters” but their words mean nothing to her. “I mean, people used to say I was fat when I was the hottest thing ever. Imagine what they say now. I am probably the No. 1 most-bullied celebrity. I really don’t go with trends, I don’t try to fit in like everyone else does in Hollywood. I just like to be different and I don’t care.”
Snooki and fiance Jionni LaValle, 24, are expecting their first child, and the mom-to-be hopes to capitalize on motherhood. “My ideas are endless,” she said. “Who wouldn’t want a leopard-print rattle or a cheetah-print bib?”
Do you think Snooki’s experiences will enhance her ability to be a good mother?
