Nicole LaValle, formerly Polizzi, is better known by her nickname, Snooki. The Chilean-born reality TV personality first rose to fame on MTV’s Jersey Shore, and in ten years has maintained her popularity through talk show appearances, Jersey Shore spin-offs and wrestling. Her 13 million Instagram followers saw her agree to marry Jionni LaValle in 2012 and welcome three children over the next seven years. The couple got hitched in late 2014.
With such an established social media presence, it’s inevitable that some followers will have something to say about Snooki’s life choices. In particular, her style of parenting has sometimes been criticized. For instance, in May 2018 she posted a selfie showing her eldest son, Lorenzo, having a meltdown behind her. Some fans were apparently unimpressed with her choice to disregard tantrums.
