Snooki posed next to her daughter after she competed in a cheer dance competition.

She put her arms around her daughter, Giovanna, 9, who was dressed in a cheerleading uniform with a varsity jacket on top.

Giovanna had a face full of heavy makeup, completed with a bold red lip.

Snooki wore a back jacket over a black top and stood just behind her daughter as she smiled at the camera.

She finished the look with a black baseball cap with her daughter’s cheer logo on the front.

The post was captioned: “Such a good weekend for my kids! Congrats to my daughter @sissygiovanna for her National Champ win at her first comp!

“& my son Lorenzo for being the best wrestler I know! So proud of these kids!! #raisingathletes.”

She followed with other photos of her daughter celebrating, as well as her son, Lorenzo, 11, wrestling.

Some fans noticed a strange detail in the photo and commented with criticism for Snooki.

One fan mentioned: “Don’t put makeup on child.”

PREGNANT?

That same photo fuelled pregnancy rumors after the star could be seen strategically hiding her stomach behind Giovanna.

Nicole currently has three children with her husband, Jionni LaValle: Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo.

The Jersey Shore star sparked pregnancy rumors last week after she took to her Instagram Stories to share a clip of her walking with her dog.

It began with Nicole, 36, filming herself strolling down the sidewalk with her pooch.

She pointed the camera at the ground below, capturing a glimpse of what looked like a baby bump beneath her baggy black jacket.

The MTV star ignored the supposed bump and posed a question for her followers in her caption.

“Anyone else walk their dog and listen to UFO encounters or is it just me?” she asked.

FAN SPECULATION

She also recently appeared in a Wawa pizza ad with her co-star and BFF, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 37, and their kids.

Nicole shared a video on Instagram of the group ordering a bunch of pies from the convenience store chain.

But her oversized sweater made fans suspicious that she could be hiding a baby bump.

The star’s greasy meal didn’t help quell rumors, with many thinking she also might have hinted at a pregnancy craving.

“Is she pregnant? Did I miss something?” one person asked in the comments.

“I was asking myself the same question!” someone else replied.

“She has to be pregnant!!” assured a third, while a fourth said: “She definitely looks it.”
