Snooki and Jionni’s relationship highs and lows were featured on Jersey Shore. Now, the couple share three children and a lot of history.
Snooki and her husband Jionni LaValle are the “it couple” of Jersey Shore, and we are ready to share a comprehensive timeline of the reality stars’ relationship. Snooki and Jionni had their share of ups and downs in the seasons of Jersey Shore that they were featured on as a couple, but their love has outlived the hit reality show that they met on. From their meeting at the infamous Karma club to Snooki’s son’s first communion celebration, there is plenty to learn about one of reality television’s greatest couples.
Although his relationship with Snooki became a focal point of the series, Jionni first appeared on Jersey Shore before meeting the meatball reality star. During Jersey Shore season 3, Jionni made a cameo at the Jersey shore house, when Snooki’s roommate Vinny Guadagnino took Jionni’s sister to the cast members; home after a night of clubbing. Jionni and his uncle stopped by the Jersey Shore house to pick up their sister. Later that year, in 2010, Snooki and Jionni first met at the aforementioned Seaside Heights nightclub, Karma. When they first met, Snooki was not a fan of her future husband. Regardless of her poor impression of Jionni, they went home together for what was meant to be a one-night stand. By October 2010, Jionni and new show Messiness star Snooki were officially dating.

Unfortunately, Snooki and Jionni’s relationship was rarely smooth sailing during their time on Jersey Shore. On the fourth season of the beloved MTV reality series, Snooki and her roommates traveled across the Atlantic to spend the summer in Italy. Aside from capturing the Italian-American casts’ return to their ancestors’ homeland, this season also contained the most brutal conflicts between Snooki and Jionni. Throughout their trip, Snooki anticipated her boyfriend’s visit to their Italian villa. Regrettably, Jionni’s brief vacation to Italy was inundated with drama between him and his then-girlfriend. The rift between Snooki and Jionni started when the couple went out and Snooki danced too provocatively for Jionni’s taste. Jionni stormed out of the club and Snooki drunkenly pursued him. Their intoxicated exchange resulted in a temporary break between the couple. It was during this break that Vinny slept with his roommate Snooki.
Snooki and Jionni’s relationship proved its resilience when the couple was back on track after a disastrous Italian vacation. In February 2012, Snooki confirmed she and her boyfriend had recovered from their breakup. Snooki and Jionni announced their engagement in March 2012. On top of their marriage plans, Snooki and Jionni revealed they were also pregnant with their first child. On August 26, 2012, Snooki gave birth to her son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle. A strong indication that Snooki and Jionni had their relationship all figured out came with the birth of their second child, who was born only a couple of years after Lorenzo. On September 26, 2014, Snooki and Jionni welcomed their first daughter, Giovanna Marie. Fans note how Lorenzo and Giovanna are identical to Snooki and her husband Jionni. On November 19, 2014, Snooki and Gionni got married in East Hanover, New Jersey.
The reality couple hit their first bump in their post-wedding relationship when Jionni was reported to have been using Ashley Madison, an online dating service. Snooki was not phased by this allegation and defended her husband in the face of a potential cheating scandal. In 2016, Snooki and Jionni returned to television for one season of their home-renovation series, Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip. In 2018, Snooki announced that she was starring in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Jionni opted to abstain from joining the series with his wife because of his tumultuous history starring on MTV. On May 30, 2019, Snooki and Jionni had their third child, Angelo James. Currently, the Jersey Shore star balances her work in reality television and her close relationship with her family as Snooki admittedly cries every time she leaves her children to film.
Snooki and Jionni have certainly faced relationship drama, but they have exceeded the low expectations of the critics who believed they wouldn’t last. From their one-night stand to their three lookalike children, Snooki and Jionni’s relationship may be meant to be. The formation of Snooki and Jionni’s relationship is a highlight of the MTV series Jersey Shore.
