UPDATE: Snooki says she’s not pregnant with a tiny tan baby

World's tannest parents?

UPDATE: And now, an end to the most short-lived rumor in reality show history. Snooki and JWOWW were on the Opie & Anthony radio show this morning and said she is not pregnant and that she hates the news outlet that reported the rumor because she thinks it is calling her fat. This was a big concern for her. TMZ uploaded an audio clip from the interview. Check out the original story below.

Could Snooki have a case of GTB (gym, tan, baby time) on her hands? Rumor has it, the feisty self-proclaimed guidette could be pregnant.

Star magazine reports Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, is expecting her first child with equally tan boyfriend Jianni LaValle. The tabloid claims Snooki is only telling her closest friends and family about the pregnancy.

Typically an over-sharer, Snooki has yet to address the rumor on her frequently updated Twitter account. She did, however, post some comments that may be an indicator that the “Jersey Shore” starlet has the situation of situations on her hand.

“I feel sick,” she said on her Facebook account on January 25.

Later, she tweeted, “Late night craving…yogurt hits the fricken spot!”

Although Snooki has been heard more than once commenting about her desire to have Jianni’s babies, something tells us this pregnancy was likely accidental. She is set to co-star with fellow Jersey girl JWOWW in a spin-off show.  

A source tells Star, “They are having to redo the creative direction of her spin-off because of her pregnancy.”

But the possible pregnancy isn’t the only bump that show producers are encountering. MTV and 459 was recently banned from filming the reality series in Hoboken, due to Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s “public safety” and “quality of life” concerns.

If the pregnancy rumor is true, we predict Snooki’s well known penchant for pickles is about to go through the roof….
