In Touch got a giant dose of Jersey at the recent “Restore the Shore” event, where we caught up with Snooki’s main squeeze Jionni LaValle.
The new dad dished about marrying America’s favorite meatball, and quickly dismissed the idea of a Jersey Shore wedding.
“It’s a nice place for dinners, maybe a little date, I don’t know… not for a wedding,” he says of Seaside nuptials. “We want a nice traditional wedding. We want to get married at least within the next year or year and a half. Not down on the shore.”
So how are Jionni and Snooki preparing for their big day?
“Well, we have Lorenzo,” he says of their 2-month-old son. “We’re trying to move out first. Right now we’re in the process of moving out. We’re definitely moving in Florham Park, which is right next to my town, so it’s where I grew up and we’re waiting for that. We both want to be out of my parents’ house before we get married. Just for our own sake and planning."
And while their big day is still a year and a half away, Jionni admits that he and Snooks have other priorities at the moment.
“We’re obviously not like planning, planning,” he tells In Touch. “She wants to go to her church and we have baby stuff to deal with before all that. We don’t have to worry about that just yet.”
But even though the gorilla and guidette have their hands full with baby Lorenzo, they’ve had time to discuss the idea of a televised wedding.
“You never know. Nicole never knows,” Jionni says of marrying on-camera. “I wouldn’t mind it, but we’ll see what happens.”
