And baby makes three!

Shahs of Sunset‘s Asa Soltan Rahmati is six months pregnant with her first child with longtime boyfriend Jermaine Jackson II, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

“I feel amazing,” Rahmati, 40, tells PEOPLE. “Being pregnant has been such a beautiful experience.”

The Bravo star has been dating Jackson, who is the son of Jermaine Jackson and a nephew of Michael and Janet, for six years.

“We are so excited and Jermaine will be the absolute best father,” Rahmati says.

Adds Jackson, 39: “Asa is an incredible person; she will be a wonderful mother.”

Iranian designer Rahmati has been open about her love for her partner, as well as her desires for a future with him.

“I’m obsessed with Jermaine and anything and everything that comes with it,” she told The Daily Dish in June. “And I think that as we are very private in our relationship as I’ve always said, we’ve talked about all those things and we’re both really excited to experience everything together, including marriage and children.”

She continued, “And, I think, when the time is right for us, we’ll definitely [see what happens] … People are obsessed with us getting married and having kids. It’s [in the] ether.”

Turns out Rahmati’s culture has a lot to do with some of the opinions she’s been getting from her loved ones.

“I’m Persian, so there’s always pressures about stuff like marriage or career,” Rahmati added. “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.”

As for the little one’s sex, Mom and Dad don’t know — yet!

“We decided to wait a little longer to find out the gender,” Rahmati explains to PEOPLE. “We have a few names in mind, but we’re waiting to meet the baby to actually name him or her!”

Shahs of Sunset has been renewed for a sixth season.
