The Jersey Shore star opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her “little nugget” 1-year-old son Lorenzo whom “loves music” and has just started to dance. Snooki goes on to say her life has been “completely” transformed by motherhood — and she “wouldn’t have it any other way.”
CBS: Tell us all about the Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi line of headphones and electronic accessories. What’s the inspiration behind it?
Snooki: “I’ve always wanted to have headphones that had style to it. So I decided to come up with my own and add a detachable headband on them. I also made my earbuds like earrings so were always ready to look good. Fashion that you can hear!”
CBS: How do you decide what kinds of products to develop for your Snooki Couture brand?
Snooki: “I want things that I love and that are important to me for my brand. I love having different things and being unique and that’s exactly how I try to make my brand.”
CBS: Did you listen to music when you were pregnant with Lorenzo? If so, what kind? Does he enjoy music now?
Snooki: “I played Lorenzo lots of music when I was pregnant, usually anything that played on the radio. And now, he loves music and is starting to dance. He’s so cool.”
CBS: Do you recommend expectant moms to listen to music?
Snooki: “Anything that makes them happy. When I was expecting, I listened to a lot of Christmas music because it always made me happy.”
CBS: Can you put these headphones on a baby bump?
Snooki: “Of course! I would love to see some pics of that.”
CBS: In our Readers’ Choice Awards, you were voted the celebrity mom most transformed by motherhood. How has motherhood changed you?
Snooki: “Motherhood has completely changed my life — from the way I view things to the way I live my life. Becoming a mom has just made me realize, ‘Grow the hell up.’ And just looking at my son everyday made me realize he’s my life now and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The best thing about being a mom is knowing that my little nugget is mine and will always be my baby. He’s my sunshine.”
CBS: Are you enjoying Dancing with the Stars? What have been the biggest surprises so far?
Snooki: “DWTS is amazing. I’m loving the experience and loving everyone on the cast. The biggest surprise is how hard it is! I knew it was going to be a challenge, but had no idea how big of a challenge. I love the fact that I push myself every week to learn a new ballroom dance that I never even imagined I would be doing.”
