Congratulations are in order for Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka! The actor popped the question on a ski trip in Aspen, Colorado over the weekend, the socialite's rep confirmed to People.
"I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend," Hilton shared in a statement. "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!" The heiress revealed that she and Zylka were posing for a photo on the snowy slopes when he got down on one knee. "I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!" said Hilton.
Hilton's newest accessory—a major 20-carat pear-cut engagement ring—was even more epic than the picture-perfect proposal. "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!" she continued.
Zylka and Hilton first crossed paths at an Oscars party eight years ago and began dating in 2016. Hilton waited before making their relationship public on Instagram, but claimed that she knew Zylka was the one immediately. "Ever since our first date I knew there was something special about him," she said. "I have never in my life met a man so loyal, dedicated, and loving. I knew right from the start that I wanted to be with him forever."
Zylka feels just as lucky. "Paris is the most beautiful and incredible woman both inside and out," Zylka shared. "I feel like the luckiest man in the world to be marrying my dream girl. I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together."
