JWOWW, that's a big ring!

Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWOWW" Farley is engaged to boyfriend Roger Mathews, the reality star confirms.

Mathews, 37, asked for his girlfriend of two-and-a-half years' hand in marriage after the couple went skydiving, presenting Farley, 27, with a pink and white diamond engagement ring that boasts roughly 7.5 carats.

On Wednesday, Farley thanked fans on Twitter for their support. "Thank u everyone on the engagement wishes," she wrote.

Her Jersey Shore cast mates were next to offer their congratulations.

"Can't be any more happy for you both @RogerMathewsNJ @JENNIWOWW!!" Samantha "Sammi" Giancola Tweeted.

In July, Farley and Mathews spoke to PEOPLE about the future of their relationship.

"[Roger's] dad is dying for us to get married. He wants grandchildren. He texts me almost every day for that," Farley said at the time.

"There's no rush … no trophy for being first. But do we want to get married? Oh yeah. Absolutely," Mathews said.

"I just want a big ring. That's all I care about – a big ring," Farley said.

Wetpaint was first to report the news.
