In news that is sure to annoy MJ Javid, Lilly Ghalichi is off the market!
The “Shahs of Sunset” star is set to wed boyfriend Dhar Mann, an entrepreneur, who she’s been dating for two months.
She announced the news on Instagram, with a photo of a giant diamond ring captioned, “Engaged!!!!!!”
However, since her relationship with Dhar is so new, and she posted the pic on April Fools’ Day, many fans thought it was a prank.
The 30-year-old swimwear designer explained the timing to E!, saying, “My boyfriend, Dhar, actually proposed to me two weeks ago when we were on vacation in the Maldives. He rented this tiny island for us to have dinner at. There was a chef and a waiter and the only thing on this island is a little table for two. It was super romantic.
“He proposed to me there, but he didn’t have a ring. I was like, ‘Then it doesn’t count. I want a ring,’” she continued. “We didn’t tell anyone else about the proposal – we just kept it to ourselves.”
Despite her quick engagement, she believes she and Dhar will make it down the aisle though they’ve only been together for eight weeks.
“I’m not worried. When you know, you know,” she said. “On our first date, he looked at me and told me we’re going to get married. I thought he was crazy, but he was right!”
