Add JWoww to the list of Jersey Shorers leaving drunken nights in Seaside Heights in the rearview in favor of more grown-up things…like marriage!
Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 27, accepted a marriage proposal from beau Roger Matthew during a weekend skydiving lesson. The star of MTV’s Snooki and JWoww tells In Touch Weekly she was stunned when Matthews — who she’s been dating for two-and-a-half years — chose an unusual way to pop the question.
“I look over and see a hand-written sign: ‘Jenni, will you … ‘ and then I turned to him and freaked out.The whole time I’m screaming, ‘What are you doing? What’s going on? He’s like, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you! Will you allow me to?’”
Naturally, she said yes. And Jenni couldn’t be more pleased with her impressive cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.
Roger, 37, says he spent months planning the proposal and worked with jeweler Layna Friedman to design the five-carat ring surrounded by 2.5 carats of pink and white diamonds in a white-gold setting.
“Roger’s not an average-looking guy, he’s huge: his personality, his size [6ft 4in]. So I always said, ‘I want my ring like you — big! The bigger the better!’”
Farley says her BFF, new mom Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, will stand in as a bridesmaid or maid of honor when she walks down the aisle.
No word on a wedding date.
