The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star has addressed rumors she and husband Jionni LaValle are headed for a split after more than three years of marriage.
"I'm still proudly wearing my ring. I love him to death. I think people worry because we never take pictures together and post on Instagram. He hates pictures, he hates this fame life. He likes to be quiet and reserved, which humbles me," Nicole toldUs Weekly.
"So, I think if I don't take pictures with him or I don't share my life with him, people are like, 'Are you still with your husband?' I don't need to share with the world what me and my husband are going through. We are totally fine."
Nicole reiterated, "We don't post our life on social media, but I love him to death and he's my best friend and he's just a little shy so leave him alone."
After two-and-a-half years of being engaged, Nicole and Jionni tied the knot in New Jersey in late November 2014. The pair have two children together, son Lorenzo Dominic, 5, and daughter Giovanna Marie, 3.
In fact, Nicole said she's ready to welcome a third child soon with the love of her life.
"We are planning to have kids at the end of July," the reality TV star told Us. "So hopefully I will have another baby by August [or] September. I want two more babies. I'm super excited. We will see."
Nicole starred onJersey Shore from 2009 to 2012 and later co-starred in the Snooki & JWoww spinoff with her best friend and castmate Jenni "JWoww" Farley. In 2017, she competed on The New Celebrity Apprentice and finished in thirteenth place.
Nicole became famous for her wild personality, partying lifestyle and signature hair poof, but a lot has changed in the last five years or so.
"It's definitely different because I have two kids now. So I kind of have that mom guilt of leaving... I have responsibilities now," Nicole said ahead of the April 5 premiere of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on MTV.
"The whole time I was thinking, 'What are my kids doing?' The hardest part was being a mom and trying to enjoy it -- knowing that my kids were fine, but the mom guilt was serious."
Nicole said children have humbled her to the point where she no longer worries or cares about "high school drama." She has also made an effort to stop holding grudges. For example, she wiped the slate clean with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, whom she previously thought was "the worst" person.
In addition, Nicole said she has learned to dress better, or at least more appropriately for her figure.
"I never regretted my fashion," she told the magazine. "I just wish I wore it better to my body. I was so fat. It's like. 'That doesn't fit you, stop!' I just wish I got better sizes."
