We couldn't help but notice the 24-year-old Princess of Poughkeepsie is looking extremely rested (despite having a 3-month-old infant at home!) - something she credits to fiance Jionni LaValle.

"Well, me and Jionni, we take shifts," she told Access, when asked how she's managing to appear refreshed while caring for little Lorenzo. "So, it balances out good."

As for the Sandy fundraiser, Snooki said the storm's victims are especially close to her heart, as a house belonging to her fiance's family was destroyed.

"He had a house in Toms River, which is right by Seaside [Heights, New Jersey], they have to knock it down," she said. "Water, the winds, there was just crazy damage."
