“Shahs of Sunset” star Asa Soltan Rahmati is expecting her first baby with longtime boyfriend Jermaine Jackson II!
People.com exclusively confirmed the news about the Bravo reality star, who for six years has been dating the son of Jermaine Jackson, nephew of Michael and Janet.
“I feel amazing,” Rahmati, 40, said. “Being pregnant has been such a beautiful experience.”
The parents-to-be have praised each other about their upcoming roles. "We are so excited and Jermaine will be the absolute best father,” Rahmati gushed, while Jackson, 39, added, “Asa is an incredible person; she will be a wonderful mother.”
The couple has been private about their love life, but in announcing the baby news have brought up some of the cultural pressures that sometimes come up for Asa. “I’m Persian, so there’s always pressures about stuff like marriage or career,” Rahmati explained. “But my parents have been surprisingly super chill. Since Jermaine and I have been together, my parents see how much in love we are and, also, they trust there’s something very organic between us. They trust the flow and what it is, and if it’s in the cards for us and our destiny, it will be.”
Is the baby a boy or a girl? “We decided to wait a little longer to find out the gender,” Rahmati told People.com. “We have a few names in mind, but we’re waiting to meet the baby to actually name him or her!”
"Shahs of Sunset" is going into its 6th season on Bravo.
