The "Jersey Shore" star gave birth on Aug. 26 at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J. and gushed over her son, who was delivered weighing in at 6 lbs., 5 oz. She showed the world her son in the latest issue of People magazine.
"It's a different kind of love that I never felt before," Polizzi, who is currently filming the second season of her MTV spin-off "Snooki & JWOWW," told People.com.
The 24-year-old is currently engaged to her baby's father Jionni LaValle, who explained how the pair came up with their first child's name. He was inspired by a child that he knew from his hometown.
"We were going back and forth, and I just happened to think of Lorenzo [and] she loved it!" LaValle said.
Lorenzo's middle name, Dominic, is said to be in memory of Polizzi's late uncle.
"I did it for my dad," she revealed.
Polizzi is renowned for her hard partying and heavy drinking, which is often seen on the hit MTV reality show "Jersey Shore," but the new mom insists that having a baby has changed her life and helped her curb her wild antics.
"When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I'm a new person," she said.
Although Polizzi admitted to accidentally consuming alcohol in the initial stages of her pregnancy, she allegedly resisted the urge to drink throughout her pregnancy.
"Pregnant people shouldn't be in a bar, I feel. All my friends are like, 'You can have a glass of wine.' I'm like 'No.' I refuse because I'm going to be that person that has a glass of wine and [the] baby comes out with three legs," she previously said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America."
"I just don't like to be around people who drink because then I'll be like, 'Cool, I miss it,'" she added.
