Even though the rumors have been out there since mid-February, Snooki finally confirmed some BIG news: She's pregnant again!

The former "Jersey Shore" star and fiance Jionni LaValle are expecting their second child together -- and it sounds like she might have a big bump when she walks down the aisle.

"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," she posted in a lengthy blog this morning. "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," she continues. "It’s always certain media that decide to tell our wonderful news BEFORE we are ready. I get it, we are on a reality show and share 98% of our lives to our fans, but with this particular situation with expecting a child has to be announced from us personally, not by some tabloid headline trying to make a quick buck."

She also denied reports saying she hid her pregnancy so it wouldn't jeopardize public appearances -- saying that's "so far from the truth."

"What really bothers me is how people think I got pregnant to be 'selfish' and take the 'shine' away from JWoww," she adds, referencing her pregnant costar. "Are you out of your minds? If you knew Jenni & I personally, you would know we always wanted to be pregnant together."

Snooks says Baby #2 was always in the cards -- and the couple wanted their children to be close in age.

"We planned to have a second child before our wedding, and will indeed still be getting married in the fall of 2014. "We are getting there, just waiting for the right time. He is my best friend and trust me, we will be together until death do us part. The wedding is still on as scheduled and it will take the apocalypse to change that."

Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, has been busy keeping in shape during this pregnancy -- hitting the gym and posting videos and photos of her workouts on Instagram.

I refuse to be in labor again for 27 hours, and being active definitely helps that," she told Us Magazine. "I also want to look somewhat in shape for my wedding."

The 26-year-old mom, Jionni and Lorenzo did an adorable photo shoot together to help announce the pregnancy -- with little Enzo wearing a t-shirt reading "Big Brother." As for Snooks, who can be seen wearing a "Weird Is a Side Effect of Awesome," there's no baby bump yet!
