The reality star, who will appear in a spinoff series with fellow Jersey Shore member JWoww, is expecting her first child with fiancé Jionni Lavalle.
"I can't wait to meet my kid!" she told V magazine for its Americana issue. "Everyone will be surprised to see a different side of me.
"I'm loving, caring, sensitive, protective, and very maternal, no matter what people might think."
Snooki admitted that she is "probably the number one most-bullied celebrity" since she likes to be different and doesn't "try to fit in like everyone else does in Hollywood".
She also revealed that she has been bullied all her life, recalling a time "older girls" would pick on her and her friends in high school because "all of their guys wanted to hang out" with them.
"I think even haters love us. And I have a lot of haters," Snooki said of her critics now. "If you're being bullied, you can't let it phase you. Stick up for yourself and they'll get bored of you."
