Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi knows how to party – even when it's for a christening.
The Snooki & JWoww star celebrated her 7-month-old son Lorenzo's baptism on Sunday and let all of her fans in on the big day via social media.
Polizzi – who recently lost 44 lbs. – showed off her svelte figure in a royal blue floor-length dress. "Proud parents today," she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo with her fiancé, Jionni LaValle.

It was just four short months ago that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi gave birth to a baby boy, Lorenzo, revealing her maternal side to world.
But the pint-sized reality star says she's already thinking about giving the little meatball a sibling.

Add one more thing to Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's signature collection: her own personalized meal.
The pregnant Jersey Shore star recently took part in the grand opening of the Earl of Sandwich at the Showboat Atlantic City Hotel & Casino, where she cut the ribbon and unveiled "Gorilla Beach," her own monstrous sandwich consisting of grilled chicken strips, mozzarella cheese, seasoned bread crumbs, Roma tomatoes, Italian dressing and, of course, pickles.
Joined by fiancé Jionni LaValle, the reality starlet seemed to be "in a great mood," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was taking pictures with some of her fans."
Adds the source, "There was a really cute moment where Jionni was holding her tummy while she was also holding her tummy when she was signing copies of her book, Gorilla Beach."

Who knew Jionni LaValle would be the man of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's dreams.
When Snooki started out on Jersey Shore, she said her "ultimate dream is to move to Jersey, find a nice, juiced hot tan guy and live my life" – and as the show's seasons have gone on, she has been able to do just that.
But it wasn't until August 2010 that she met LaValle, the guy who stood out from the others, and the one who has stuck around the longest.
"I'm like, 'I want to marry you!' " Polizzi, 24, giddily told PEOPLE a year ago about her man. "I know he's the one."
And now the two are engaged and expecting – certainly connecting the two for life.

Newly engaged Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is still in the early stages of her pregnancy, but she already has a list of names in mind for her baby.
For a girl, the Jersey Shore star told PEOPLE in 2011 that she loves the names Gia and Isabella. In November, she told GQ she also likes the name Giana.
If her bundle of joy is a boy, Polizzi told PEOPLE that she would consider the names Tony and Frankie, but told the men's magazine that she'd also think about honoring her new fiancé, Jionni LaValle, by naming the child Jionni Jr.
