Even better than the real thing?
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi appears to be practicing for her baby's arrival by borrowing a page from Home Economics 101.
Snooki and her BFF Jenni "JWoww" Farley, who are co-starring in a Jersey Shore spinoff
, were seen out and about in Jersey City, N.J., this week – each with a doll in tow. The roommates purchased strollers for their practice infants and later went to a children's clothing store to buy outfits.
Snooki was later photographed holding her doll, which was draped in a cheetah-print blanket, and pushing it around the city in the new stroller.
No word on whether her fiancé, Jionni LaValle
, has also acquired a doll to prep with. – Liz Raftery
