As Snooki's baby bump continues to grow, her clothes are beginning to get to tight as they do for all expecting mothers. The Insider caught up with Snooki as she went maternity shopping at Unbuttoned Maternity in New Jersey and found out her very specific pregnancy diet.
"Right now I like to eat pineapples and fruits and strawberries and watermelon," she revealed, adding that those foods are basically the only ones that she consumes. "I get hot really easily so I like to eat a lot of fruits that are cold or like ice cream or Italian ices."
The Jersey Shore reality star who has a spin-off, Snooki & JWoww, premiering soon added that although her diet has consisted mostly of fruits, she does plan to indulge a little and believes that her post-pregnancy weight loss will be easy.
"Indulging in brownies and cookies is actually really good for the baby—like the sugars are kind of good sometimes but not all the time," she said. "I'm going to try to eat healthy but also indulge a little bit. I'm not worried about the weight after because I was 100 pounds before I got pregnant. It'll bounce right back."
Although she was a maternity store and picked out a few things, Snooki said that she's trying to keep things "normal" and, in the event that her bump grows too big for her clothes, she plans to wear plus-size clothes.
As for her summer attire, Snooki plans to wear things that keep her cool but is adamant on keeping her pregnant body out of one particular item.
"There's no way in hell I'm wearing a bathing suit," she said of her summer clothing. "I am a whale right now and no one wants to see a pregnant lady in a bathing suit...I just gonna wear some nice maxi dresses or something that keeps me cool."
Snooki's new spin-off reality show, Snooki & JWoww, premieres June 21 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
