Socialite Paris Hilton and businessman Carter Reum are taking their relationship to the next level!
Over the most romantic weekend of the year, Carter popped the question to Paris after a year of dating.
While celebrating her 40th birthday on a private island, Reum went down on one knee with a ring designed by Jean Dousset.
Paris told People magazine, “This past year with COVID has accelerated so many things. As someone who traveled constantly, I had a chance to stay home and reevaluate what was important to me. My relationship and the time I spent with Carter was a gift. I'm excited for our next chapter."
Carter added, “I have gotten the unique opportunity to get to know the real Paris on a daily basis just the two of us during these past 15 months and I couldn't be more excited and lucky to have her as my future wife and partner. She shines with her kindness, work ethic, authenticity and her voice in making the world a better place and she will do the same as a future mother and wife."
On Instagram, Hilton shared photos from the proposal. 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."
