Snooki planned to put high heels on as soon as her baby was born
The `Jersey Shore` star took the fashion accessory with her when she went into labour with baby boy Lorenzo - who she welcomed into the world with fiance Jionni LaValle in August - but she couldn-t bring herself to put the footwear on because her feet were swollen.
The brunette beauty - who has previously confessed to putting on make-up in the delivery room before giving birth - said: "I even brought heels just in case, but my feet just blew up - I couldn`t. I just want to look good when my baby first sees me!"
Snooki - whose real name is Nicole Polizzi - was known for her wild partying antics on MTV`s `Jersey Shore`, but she insists her life is "totally different" since becoming a mother.
She explained: "It`s crazy `cause, you know me, I always wanted to have a good time. `Where`s the next party? What am I going to do tonight?` And now it`s just like, you know, `I love my baby. What can we do with him?` It`s just totally different."
While the 24-year-old star admits she will "definitely" miss `Jersey Shore` - which is currently in its sixth and final season - she feels it is the "right time" for the reality show to come to an end.
Speaking on the `Today` show earlier on 24.10.12, she added: "It`s definitely bittersweet. But you know, me being pregnant, filming the last season, it was just like the right time - when we`re all growing up, going our separate ways - So I think this was the perfect time, but I`m definitely going to miss it."
