Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has a second meatball on the way!

The reality star and fiance Jionni LaValle announced the upcoming arrival of a new baby on her blog on Friday.

“Jionni and I are so excited to confirm that we are expecting our second child! Now knowing that our test results are good and our baby is healthy, we can finally talk about it!” she wrote.

The reality star vented about the media announcing her second pregnancy before she did.

“Unfortunately, like my first pregnancy, I decided to tell a select few people that we were expecting before the 3rd month mark, and it got leaked to certain media outlets. Again, it has happened with my second. I just want to say HOW THRILLED we are on expecting our second child and we couldn’t be any happier. But what sucks is how it’s never our business to tell anymore. It’s always certain media that decide to tell our wonderful news BEFORE we are ready,” she explained.

The 26-year-old, who also has 19-month-old son Lorenzo at home, takes issue with the idea that she can’t work while she’s expecting and warned the public that she will fiercely protect her family.

“Headlines reading that I’m hiding my pregnancy because I don’t want to jeopardize ‘appearances’ is so far from the truth. Who pulls this s**t out of their a** anyway? Just because I’m pregnant means I can’t work? Fail,” she wrote. “I’ve read a lot of negativity concerning my second pregnancy, and I NEVER comment on what strangers think about my life, but when it concerns my family, something needs to be said. I’m a momma bear and I will stick up for my family until the day I die, and even after that.”

Snooki also sounded off on people who think she should be married to Jionni by now.

“I’ve also seen how upset people are getting at the fact that Jionni and I aren’t married yet. I’m so glad you are all concerned about our life, but we are doing fine I assure you. We planned to have a second child before our wedding, and will indeed still be getting married in the fall of 2014. We are a committed family that will raise our children to be the best they can be and give them the best life we can give them,” she wrote in her blog.

Adding, “I would love to also mention that Jionni and I are VERY happy together. He’s my best friend and I’m his…we are very secure in our relationship and I know and trust my man, he wouldn’t hurt me or our family. He’s a real man. So we will pray for you and hope one day you can find happiness. The wedding is still on as scheduled and it will take the apocalypse to change that.”
