Paris Hilton is getting hitched!
The heiress and DJ got engaged to boyfriend Carter Reum over the weekend while on a private island celebrating her 40th birthday, which is Wednesday.
Reum gave Hilton an emerald-cut ring and Hilton posed in a silver Retrofete dress and Loschy crown for the couple’s engagement photos. Reum was in a white suit, so they matched. Hilton’s sister Nicky and Reum’s brother Courtney celebrated the news with them later on the trip.
Hilton expressed her excitement about her impending nuptials to Vogue in an interview: “I am excited about this next chapter and having such a supportive partner. Our relationship is one of equals. We make each other better people. He was absolutely worth the wait!”
Reum had equally glowing words about his bride-to-be. “From our very first date, I was able to get to know the real Paris,” he said. “As people who have seen her documentary and recent advocacy work know, Paris is kind, smart, driven, authentic, and an amazing women, and I can’t wait to have her as a partner in life.”
Hilton also announced the news on her Instagram, sharing a video featuring more engagement photos. “When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it. 💫” she wrote. “My love & I have been together since our first date, and for my birthday, he arranged a special trip to tropical paradise. 🏝️ As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee. 💍 I said yes, yes to forever ❤️ There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with. ✨ To see more photos of my birthday dream come true, visit ParisHilton.com.
