All the details on his secret proposal to Adam Neely—and how his family reacted.

on Feb 5 - The Dish0

He put a ring on it!

Reza Farahan and Adam Neely are engaged. The Shahs of Sunset star popped the question to his live-in boyfriend with a gorgeous Cartier ring, while surrounded by his Shahs pals.

"I finally met the love of my life," Reza tells the Dish, before revealing his decision to finally settle down: "My ass isn't getting any younger!"

Reza popped the question at his birthday dinner back in August and the momentous occasion will be featured on next week's episode (tune in at 9/8c). But he did give a few of his friends a heads-up about his intention beforehand. "I talked to Asa [Soltan] and MJ [Javid] about it, but I didn't want it getting back to Adam," he says. "I wanted him to really be surprised."

The same could be said about Reza's family, too. Though he proposed six months ago, he only informed his family of his engagement last week. How'd they react? "Not well," he says. "They adore Adam but they didn't appreciate the fact that I had kept such big news from them for so long."

Reza kept the engagement under wraps to avoid his family from voicing their opinions on the matter. "I didn't want to hear anything negative around such a joyous event," he says. "The first thing my mom asked was, 'It won't be on TV, will it?' And that's why I had waited."

Despite any drama with his family, Reza says he and Adam are happier than ever—and they just moved into a new condo together. "We're a family," he says. "A family of two, but a family nonetheless."

Now, he's excited to start the next chapter in his life: "I've lived my life with one foot in and the other out. This was the catalyst for me to shut the door on my whoreish ways for good!"

Are you happy for Reza and Adam? What do you think about his decision to keep the proposal a secret for so long? Tell us in the comments.

Congratulations Reza. Adam seems to be a very nice guy. He's not caught up in your drama and he has stayed with you through all your talking about yourself. He's polite and seems smart and He's good looking, and I think he has a heart - however its just a TV show so we really dont know how genuine it all is.

Reza, you did better than anyone expected. Lets face it dearie, its not that your getting older its that your breasts are getting bigger like all aging men and by the time this happens if you dont have someone on the back burner its time to start worrying.

You have some good qualities and I hope now that you are in Love [I hope its not a fake] the best parts of you and your personality can now flourish. All that bitchy anger you have will disappear or should now that you are in love.

Congratulations to Adam too, you seem like a sweet loving guy and your handsome too.
