Snooki won't get married until she has her own home.
The 'Jersey Shore' star and her fiance Jionni LaValle are currently living in his parents' basement and Snooki insists they won't tie the knot until their own home is completed.
She told MTV: "Me and Jionni want to have a house first, 'cause we don't want to get married and go back in his parent's basement. So right now we're in the process of building our home, so until that's ready we're just waiting on the wedding, not rushing it."
The couple became parents to Lorenzo last year and Snooki loves motherhood because he is such a good baby.
She said: "Oh, it's been a blast. Being a mom is definitely more easier than I thought it would be just because Lorenzo's amazing," she shared with MTV News. "He's a happy baby. He hardly cries...everything has been smooth sailing and it's been so fun."
While she is best known for her wild ways on 'Jersey Shore', Snooki, 25, has no regrets about her former party-filled lifestyle.
She explained: "I let it all out and everyone seen anything from starting the show, I was 21 just being able to drink, so that's when I went crazy -- to boyfriends, to fights, to getting arrested -- I basically did everything. And to now -- 25 years old, engaged with a 3-month-old -- I mean this is kind of where I wanted to be at this age. So I'm happy it all worked out."
