Snooki, the diminutive reality TV show diva, said being a mother has forced her to give up her hard-partying ways.
"It definitely made me grow up and be mature," she told TheWrap Monday at a New York fundraiser for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender support group The Trevor Project. "It changed everything about my life."
Snooki, who strutted down the red carpet with her "Jersey Shore" cast-mate JWoww, gave birth last year to her first child, Lorenzo.
She also weighed in on the newest member of a certain camera-loving Calabasas clan.
"I think she'll do great," Snooki said of Kim Kardashian, who gave birth to a daughter on Sunday.
However, she stopped short of offering any parenting tips to the new mother.
"I'm sure she gets a lot of advice now because it's like the big topic right now," she said.
Snooki and JWoww also revealed that filming on the third season of their "Jersey Shore" spin-off, "Snooki & JWoww" will begin next month. The pair said they aren't sure what exactly is in store for fans, but it might include Lorenzo's first birthday party in August.
"It will probably be insane," Snooki said. "We never know what is going to happen, because [the cameras] just follow us."
The theme of the evening was gay rights and both women said they felt blessed to have attracted a gay following from their reality TV work, joking that the root of attraction was that they were both "drag queens."
"We're ourselves and I feel like whether they're coming out or just came out, [gay people] want to be themselves and they can kind of relate to us and we can relate to them that no matter what criticism we take or how many times we end up in wardrobe malfunctions, we're still fierce," JWoww said.
