"I look over and see a hand-written sign: 'Jenni, will you ...' and then I turned to him and freaked out," she said. "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?'"
Farley has been with Mathews for more than two years. He appears on "Jersey Shore" and her and co-star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's spin-off series, "Snooki & JWoww."

"Big news !!! @JENNIWOWW and I are excited to announce that very soon we are gonna be raising a baby," he Tweeted on Wednesday, adding: "Sorry got cut off. ..... a baby carrot garden and our back yard. She's quite a green thumb. lol. 'IN' our back yard I meant. Haaaa. Got you tweeters."
"Rogers an ass lmao," JWoww replied.
Mathews gave her a white gold engagement ring that contains a more than 5-carat cushion cut diamond that is "surrounded by 2.5 carats of pink and white diamonds in a white-gold setting," according to In Touch. The price was not revealed, but such pieces would typically cost at least $60,000.
"Roger's not an average-looking guy, he's huge: his personality, his size [6'4"]," Farley told the magazine. "So I always said, 'I want my ring like you - big! The bigger the better!'"
The outlet added that the ring was designed by Layna Silvagni Friedman of Barbie Rocks, one of Farley's favorite jewelry companies. Its celebrity clients include Denise Richards, Selena Gomez, Gabrielle Union, Leighton Meester and Teri Hatcher.
