Jersey Shore's Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi poses in rare photo with husband Jionni LaValle & all three kids at church

JERSEY SHORE'S Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi posed in a rare photo with her husband, Jionni LaValle, and their three young children over the weekend.

The reality star shared the family photo on Instagram as they all celebrated her eldest son Lorenzo's First Communion in church.

The photo featured Nicole 'Snooki' and her husband, Jionni, attempting to capture the family moment in front of a backdrop of flowers and white and blue balloons.

The MTV reality star captioned the photo: "Happy Communion Day to my first born nugget, Lorenzo! I love you so much, my baby! ( This was the best pic we could get. Welp. )"

Fans seldom see photos of the 33-year-old's family as the Jersey Shore star has kept her personal life out of the spotlight.

Fans speculated that The Snooki Shop owner had quietly split from her husband of seven years due to his absence on her social media accounts.

In March, the Snooki + JWoww star squashed the rumors by posting a selfie of the happy couple on Instagram.

Both Snooki and Jionni wore face masks in the snap, while the MTV star rocked a full face of makeup and completed the look with a white baseball cap that featured Mickey Mouse on it.

The TV personality wrote in the caption, joking about her beloved stuffed animal from Jersey Shore: '“He’s like crocadilly, but alive. '?❤️"

This isn't the first time the reality star has had to defend her relationship with the 34-year-old entrepreneur.

Back in January, Snooki took to her Instagram Stories to set the record straight about her marital status.

In a black and white selfie video, Snooki said: “I just read some conspiracy theories about myself from fans noticing that I don’t wear my wedding rings anymore.

“I do this all day. I’m a mother of three. I don’t need to be wearing the ring around the house or to run and go get Starbucks."

She added with a serious tone: “It’s just not my thing."

Snooki continued: “Jionni hardly wears his ring either. Obviously I have my rings, they’re here – they’re in the bathroom. 

“I’ll wear it if we go on a date or we go to a family event or something cool, but other than that, I’m not wearing my ring b****es.

“Now you know, if I’m not wearing my ring, it’s okay."

Snooki and Jionni share Giovanna, six, Lorenzo, eight, and Angelo James, one.

In December 2020, Snooki first revealed to fans on her podcast that she wasn't signing on for a fourth season of the series revival.

In a interview with Entertainment Tonight, she explained that her kids played a role in her decision.

She told the publication: "I just feel like people move on sometimes. And having three kids and leaving and doing all of it is just really, really hard for me."

"I truly missed everyone and the show.

"I don't regret leaving, because I truly needed a break for my soul and to just be a mom.

One year after announcing her hiatus from the show, MTV revealed Snooki will be returning for the spinoff series.

In the trailer for the upcoming season, Snooki is seen popping out of a cake surprising the roommates with champagne bottles.

"But coming back has shown me how much I love this show and my besties."

She continued: "I appreciate all of your support and understanding.

"Mawma needed a break, but now Mawma is back to bring the party for you & all the good vibes."

The fifth season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation premieres Thursday, June 3rd at 8:00pm on MTV.
