A famous reality star is now opening up about being adopted as a child. Snooki, from Jersey Shore, discussed the topic in a recent interview.
The 30-year-old reality star was adopted by Helen and Andrew Polizzi from Santiago, Chile, when she was just 6 months old, reported ET Online.
"They flew all the way to Chile to come pick me up and they said that right when they saw me I was like, 'Mama. Dada,' so it was, like, meant to be. I could tell because, you know, things just work out that way. It's called fate," Snooki said on her vlog. "So I was always meant to be with my adoptive parents. Ew I hate saying 'adoptive parents' because they're my parents. It's weird. It doesn't affect me like that like other adopted kids feel, I guess. I'm just very content with it."
Snooki says she considers herself to be both an Italian and a Chilean. She even said she always knew she was adopted.
"I always knew, [my parents] didn't have to tell me. They didn't have to sit me down at 10 and be like, 'Nicole, you're adopted,'" the mom-of-two said. "Like, I knew. I'm like, 'We don't look alike. I'm brown, you're white. This doesn't make sense.' But I always knew in my heart I was adopted and I was totally fine with it."
Snooki continued on about her birth family. She said the reason she was given up for adoption as because her family couldn't afford to have another child.
