Baby meatballs on board! With Jersey Shore co-stars and BFFs Deena Cortese and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi being pregnant at the same time, these mamas are already plotting how their little ones will meet.

Speaking exclusively with Life & Style magazine, Deena, who’s expecting a boy with hubby Christopher Buckner this month, shared her and Nicole’s sweet plans. “We’re hoping both are the same gender so they’ll be best friends — and if not, maybe they’ll date!” the 31-year-old gushed. OMG! Can you imagine? MTV would be set for years to come with the second generation of Jersey Shore stars.

Snooki is too early along in her third pregnancy to know the sex of her little one, but we’re holding out hope that it will be a girl. Speaking of which, Deena originally wanted her first to be a girl, but she’s beyond thrilled with how things turned out.

“Now I’m super happy that I’m having a boy,” she explained. “I think it’s great because I was able to name him after my dad and who knows? Maybe he’ll have some personality traits like my dad. We also have so many little boys in our family. So, it’ll be nice that he’ll be able to play with them,” Deena continued. “And if we had a little girl down the line, awesome, but now I’m like ‘do I want another boy so they can play together?’ Who knows? At the end of the day as long as they’re healthy, that’s all that matters to me.” Agreed!

The reality star has already revealed that she’ll be naming her son Christopher John and of course, we can’t wait to see pictures.

Be sure to catch new episodes of Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 every Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
