SnookiFormer Jersey Shore star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi told attendees of an LGBTI community event she is praying to one day have a “gay little boy”, and wants to be a better role model.

Polizzi joined former co-star Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley at an event in New York City hosted by The Trevor Project, an organisation for the prevention of LGBTI youth suicide, where she said being a mother has changed her.

“’Me and Jenni weren’t exactly the best role models. But now that I’m a mom, I’m so grateful for The Trevor Project to support the LGBT youth so they have someone there for them because I’m praying I have a gay little boy one day,” she said.

Polizzi has a 10-month-old son with Jionni LaValle, who also appeared on Jersey Shore.
