When Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi introduced her first child, Lorenzo Dominic, she probably did not see dollar signs. However, experts believe her new image could add to her overall net worth.

"By my estimates Snooki stands to make about two million now that the baby is born," "Celebrity Inc." author Joe Piazza told Wetpaint Entertainment. "She will likely get around $500,000 in total domestic and international for the first pictures of her son. She'll also be able to nab an extra million in endorsements, including product placements and Twitter mentions in the next few months. You can add to that an extra $500,000 for future magazine spreads or events with the baby, like his first birthday."
"Having a child is one of the most lucrative things a celebrity can do these days," Piazza said. "It's a guaranteed money maker and it bolsters your brand."
On Aug. 26, at 5:30 a.m., Snooki posted on her Twitter page, "I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6 lbs! HE'SMY WORLD! <3"
She later tweeted, "Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad."
The star later revealed she got hardly any sleep, but she wrote it was "SO worth it!"
A rep for the star released a statement saying, "The world just got another Guido!!!"
