PEOPLE has just learned from a trusted source that the Jersey Shore star and her boyfriend Jionni LaValle are freshly engaged and hoping to become parents before the year is over.

This is the turn of events that was predicted by Polizzi in January – when she was talking to PEOPLE she said that she was sure LaValle was the man for her, and it would all end with a ring, if not very soon.

The other thing she was certain of is that the sparkler would be a big one, because her fiancé knew well that he might get it back if it wouldn’t be magnificent enough!

Later on, in February, she got to talking on Good Morning America about her year-and-a-half relationship and plans for the family. She asserted she was not pregnant, though admitted she wanted kids.

After that the habit to deny the pregnancy rumor grew on her, for she repeated her denial on Live! With Kelly show, complaining that she “gained weight again,” and did it for the third time on Watch What Happens Live in a talk with Andy Cohen.

There was no comment from either the actress’s rep or MTV.

The 24-year-old is currently busy with doing a Jersey Shore spinoff in Jersey City, where she and her fiancé were photographed as he was carting boxes to her home. As MTV’s rep informs PEOPLE, the work progresses smoothly, with Polizzi helped along by her best friend Jenni “JWoww” Farley; the latest news is that they moved into a new apartment “with animal print furniture in tow.” Good luck, girls, while the situation hasn’t yet changed!
