The Truth About Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi's Husband

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi rose to fame with her outrageous antics on "Jersey Shore" and eventually met her husband Jionni LaValle at nightclub Karma in 2010, according to InTouch Weekly.

It apparently was not love at first sight, and it took some time for Polizzi to catch feelings for him. "She wasn't sure about him at first," a source told Us Weekly in March 2012. "She was hesitant because he isn't the typical gorilla. He's pretty quiet." Their romance quickly blossomed and the couple married in 2014, per People.

Polizzi is still heads over the moon for LaValle and credited him for his support during her third pregnancy. "He's helping me with the kids a lot, so me feeling this way and feeling disgusting and not in good moods, he usually takes the kids off my hands," she told Us Weekly in January 2019. "He's just really forgiving with my attitude, which is great, because usually if he's not, we have a full-blown fight."

Fans are familiar with the reality star, but little is known about her husband. Keep reading for more details on who he really is.

Snooki's husband is a successful businessman

Jionni LaValle isn't living off of his wife Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's fortune – he's involved in a few businesses.

He has his own ATM company, JNLFastCash, but it's not clear if the business is still running since it appears the Instagram account has not been updated since 2017. Before his AMT business, he had a t-shirt company called NJ Fatman, according to a December 2020 report from InTouch Weekly. He also ran LaValle's man cave, an Etsy shop where he created items designed around golf. It's safe to say he stays busy!

He's also a loving husband and never forgets his anniversary on social media. In November 2019 he wrote, "Happy Anniversary Nicole!!! I'm so lucky to have such an amazing wife and mother to our kids! #HappyAnniversary #ImGatsby." He followed up with a similar sentiment in November 2020 with, "Happy Anniversary biggg mommma!!!!! #WeDidIt"

When he's not tooling around with his boat on the Jersey shore or spending time with his wife, he's a devoted father to his three kids — Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo. He was clearly a proud dad during Lorenzo's first communion celebration: "Lorenzo making his communion!! So proud of him even with his How Ya Doinn pose!," he wrote.
