(NEW YORK) — First Snooki, now her sidekick. After months of rumors and speculation, Jenni “JWoww” Farley announced on Wednesday that she’s engaged to her long-term boyfriend, Roger Mathews.
“We are happy to confirm that the In Touch Weekly news is true,” JWoww’s rep said in a statement to ABC News. “We are officially engaged and look forward to this next chapter in our lives! Thank you to all of our fans for their well wishes. We hope they find love at the Shore too!”
Mathews, who’s often featured on MTV’s Jersey Shore and the spin-off Snooki & JWoww, popped the question while the two were skydiving on Sept. 14.
“The whole time I’m screaming, ‘What are you doing? What’s going on?’” she told In Touch of the proposal. “He’s like, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you! Will you allow me to?’”
The larger-than-life reality star got an engagement ring to match her personality.
“Roger’s not an average-looking guy, he’s huge: his personality, his size,” said JWoww. “So I always said, ‘I want my ring like you — big! The bigger the better!’”
In a statement, MTV said, “We offer our best wishes and a huge congratulations to Jenni and Roger on the news of their engagement. After seeing the ring, all we can say is ‘JWOWW.’”
