Happy birthday, Snooki!
Nicole Polizzi turns 25 Friday, celebrating with her “favorite birthday gift” – son Lorenzo Dominic, 3 months.
“Once a month, I go out with my girlfriends because if you don’t go out when you’re a new mom, you’re just going to freak out,” she said recently. “You need time for yourself. It’s always so busy with the baby. Sometimes you get stressed or frustrated, so you just need your own time.”
The family of three had plenty of time as a trio on Thursday, as evidenced by the documentation of “baby’s first Thanksgiving” on Polizzi’s Instagram account.
