Snooki is thanking her lucky stars for little Giovanna Marie and Lorenzo Dominic!
In a candid interview with SiriusXM podcast Wake Up! With Taylor, Snooks revealed she would be in rehab today if it weren't for the birth of her two kids. It isn't too much of a stretch considering the reality star was once arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct during her stint on the Jersey Shore.

Plus, who could forget these wild moments?
Yep… those were some times.
All jokes aside, the momma admitted to being initially apprehensive of motherhood when she first found out she was pregnant with her now three-year-old son at 24:
"I always wanted to have kids but I wanted to wait till like, I don't know, 27. But I got pregnant at 24 — so I was like: ‘S—, I'm not ready, what am I going to do? I don't even know how to hold a baby. I hate kids!' I wasn't ready to make that transition. People were like: ‘Do you want to hold my baby?' I was like: ‘No, I'm drinking a beer, go away'".
Ha! We can totally envision this!
Luckily for the beauty, she was able to get past her fears thanks to natural maternal instincts. The wife added that the transition into mommy inspired her to throw away her vices so she could "be a better person" for her baby.
"We have this switch that goes off. But it's before the baby popped out — it was right when I got pregnant."
Wow, good thing nature kicked in!
Summing up just how thankful she is to have her kiddos, Snooki admitted that she'd "be in rehab" today if things have turned out differently.
Well, we're glad to hear Snooksters came through the other side okay. Anyways, she can always get "black out" with Khloé Kardashian if she ever feels those urges popping up again… mommas are allowed to have some fun, after all!
