Snooki: I don’t drink anymore

Former Jersey Shore star Snooki has revealed she drunk enough for “10 people’s lifetimes” in her partying heyday.

The 27-year-old star found fame on hit MTV reality show Jersey Shore. During her time on the programme, Snooki was rarely seen without an alcoholic beverage in her hand.

But now she is mother to two young children with husband Jionni LaValle, drinking is the last thing on her mind.

“I'm not drinking, I don't have the urge to, because I drank so much from 13 to 24, so I kind of like drank for 10 people's lifetimes, but once in a while I do like to go out with my girlfriends,” Snooki told E! News on Thursday. “And it's mainly wine, it's not like chugging vodka anymore. But I love my wine…I can't drink like I used to. I don't know how I did it."

Snooki welcomed son Lorenzo in August 2012, and added to her family once again with the arrival of daughter Giovanna in September last year.

And while Snooki relishes being a mother, she admits that Lorenzo is going through a somewhat testing period.

"Lorenzo's a pain in the a**," she joked. "I mean I love him to death, but he's a pain in the a**, he's going through his terrible twos. He talks back to me, he doesn't listen, but the good thing is he's terrified of timeout…so if he ever acts up, I'm like ‘you're going in timeout' and then he stops."

Snooki’s life was turned upside down when she found out she was pregnant at the age of 24.

So to help her cope with the pregnancy, she wrote down all her feelings – and this was turned into a book, Baby Bumps: From Party Girl to Proud Mama, which was recently re-released.

"I wrote the book because when I was pregnant I kept a journal…I wasn't ready to be pregnant, I always wanted kids, but I just wasn't ready at 24, I wanted it at 26," she explained. "So with my journal I just kept writing everything that I was going through.”
