She’s almost ready! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi plans to get back to the gym five weeks after giving birth to her third child, son Angelo.
“Let’s do this,” the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star, 31, captioned an Instagram Story video of her post-baby body on Thursday, June 20. “4 weeks postpartum. Gonna start working out next week!” Polizzi wore a sports bra and high-waisted leggings in the post.
The reality star faced backlash on June 3 after announcing her eagerness to get fit days after Angelo arrived. “4 days postpartum & body is feeling good besides the fact that my cramps still feel like contractions!” she wrote of an Instagram mirror selfie. “Still healing but can’t wait to jump back into the gym hardcore this summer! Time to be a fit mawma again for my nuggets.”
Polizzi later added to her caption in defense of her intentions. “Receiving backlash because I can’t wait to get in the gym and get fit again? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don’t attack me for wanting to become strong and fit again after my pregnancy,” she noted. “My boobs are leaking and pulsating, my butthole is sore and my cramps are unbearable & I’m still wearing a diaper the size of Texas. Postpartum is a bitch. But I’m allowed to look on the bright side of things and want to get back into shape. Don’t punish me for that.”
The How Far Is Tattoo Far? cohost and her husband, Jionni LaValle, welcomed Angelo on May 30. The couple, who tied the knot in November 2014, are also parents of son Lorenzo, 6, and daughter Giovanna, 4.
Polizzi proudly showed off her bikini body two weeks after her delivery. However, she kept it real, captioning her Instagram post, “If you zoom in I’m still wearing my diaper.”
