The 24-year-old, also known as Nicole Polizzi, announced in March that she is expecting her first child
with Jionni LaValle.
She has now told Us Weekly
that LaValle is helping out a lot.
"He takes care of me like a parent, and that's what I need," she said. "The other day he told me to clean up around the house and I was like, 'OK, Dad'.
"This morning he made me a to-go oatmeal thing with a note: 'This is for Junior. Eat up. Love you'."
Snooki, who vowed to give up drinking
during her pregnancy, also revealed that she has no regrets about her former partying lifestyle, saying: "It was awesome! But now it's time to be a parent."
She recently admitted that she "hates" the effect pregnancy has had on her breasts
and confessed that she was nervous about telling her father
