She may be preparing for impending motherhood, but Snooki clearly hasn't given up some of her childish habits.
The 24-year-old reality star, who is expecting her first child with fiance Jionni Lavalle, was snapped blowing bubblegum as she arrived at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studios ahead of her appearance on the chat show yesterday.
Wearing a black sequinned mini dress, the diminutive Jersey Shore star showcased her growing bump in all its glory and made sure to match her towering bubblegum pink platform heels to her choice of chewing snack.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the pint-sized star received a miniature Gym, Tan, Laundry set as a gift for her unborn baby.
The late night host presented the reality star with the kit, supposedly made by toy manufacturer Fisher-Price live on television.
Clapping her hands as she took in the 'GTL' set, Snooki seemed thrilled to be passing on a piece of her Jersey Shore legacy to her offspring.

'We are going in blind,' she admitted. 'So his parents, he has a huge family, and my parents, will help.'

While fans are used to watching Snooki get herself into all sorts of trouble during drunken nights out, she discussed having to stay sober as all her friends partied.
'I made my own fun, but it definitely sucked to see all my friends drinking, doing shots, and having fun, and I was like sitting there,' she admitted.
'Drunk people are so annoying – now I know why people get annoyed with me.'

At the same time, the couple also revealed that they had become engaged after 18 months together.
During the episode of Jersey Shore that aired this week, Snooki revealed her news to her co-stars, but it did not go as planned, with her housemates mocking her and criticising her decision.
