  • Paris Hilton has announced on social media that she is engaged to her boyfriend Chris Zylka, after he proposed over the holidays.

    The reality TV star took to Twitter to share the happy news with her 17.5m followers that she said ‘yes’ and has accepted her boyfriend, actor Chris Zylka’s proposal.

    She started off by announcing her engagement saying: ‘I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend. I have never felt so happy, safe and loved. He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales really do exist!’

    She continued to spread the word of her exciting news by including a photo of her other half, Chris, bent down on one knee holding out a ring.

    ‘I said Yas! So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true!’, she wrote.

    The Hilton Hotel heiress was on holiday with her beau in Aspen, Colorado over New Year’s weekend. They were having lunch in the ski town when he popped the question.

    Paris told People magazine: ‘I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!’

    When she saw the ring she got an even bigger shock: ‘The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!’

    The huge tear drop-shaped rock is reportedly worth $2 million.

    Paris and Chris have known each other for the past eight years, having first met at an Oscars party.

    The pair didn’t get together until two years ago however, and kept their relationship out of the public eye for some time.

    The two only made it ‘official’ in February 2016, when Paris posted a Instagram picture confirming that the two were an item.

    Congratulations to the happy couple!
