Snooki tells Us Weekly that she is 15 weeks pregnant and she learned the news "right after New Year's."

So what was her first thought? "'S***, I've been drinking!' I was worried," she tells the mag. "It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy."

"I have different priorities now," Snooki adds. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready." LaValle chimed in, "We are not going to screw this up."
