The new year is kicking off with a bang for Paris Hilton, who announced on Tuesday that she's engaged to actor Chris Zylka. He told the magazine he feels like the luckiest man in the world.
People also has the photos of the proposal, with Zylka getting down on one knee on a snowy mountain to pop the question while the two were posing for photos after lunch.
Announcing her engagement on her Instagram account, which has almost eight million followers, she declared: "I said Yas!"
He held open a ring box, revealing a huge tear drop-shaped rock and the couple kissed when she said yes. Ideal for me in every way.
The couple met eight years ago at an Oscars party but became an item only two years ago. "So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted", she captioned the pictures. And I'm happy that I waited to find the right person.
The engagement wasn't the first time Zylka professed his love for Hilton.
Hilton told U.S. magazine People that the engagement ring is "so gorgeous and sparkling". "You are my dream come true!", she wrote. [I want to] show them that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and your confidence. "It is the most handsome ring that I have ever seen!" she said. Added Zylka, "Paris is the most handsome and incredible woman both inside and out", adding, "I feel like the luckiest man in the world to be marrying my dream girl".
"I know I have a lot of young fans, especially girls who are very impressionable and are growing up", the socialite explained.
Hilton, meanwhile, dated businessman Thomas Gross before beginning her relationship with Zylka.
