Get ready for gym, tan, LABOR!!!!!

Sources close to Snooki tell TMZ the reality star has gone into labor. We're told she is at a hospital in New Jersey now and is expected to deliver her little meatball to the world some time in the near future.

The "Jersey Shore" star announced her pregnancy back in March and also announced that she is engaged to the baby daddy, Jionni LaVelle.

Snooki tweeted just yesterday about her pregnancy, saying, "I am a balloon ready to pop."
