News Paris Hilton Got Engaged in the Most Fairytale-Worthy Way By Alexandra Whittaker Updated on January 2, 2018 @ 10:00AM Pin Share Tweet Email Paris Hilton is going from the Simple Life to married life: She is officially engaged. Hilton's beau, actor Chris Zylka, popped the question over the holidays during a ski trip in Aspen, Colorado, and the proposal sounds like a real-life fairytale. After hitting the slopes and grabbing lunch in a ski town, Zylka got down on one knee, much to Hilton's surprise. “I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!” Hilton told People. "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!"

He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales really do exist!” Gisela Schober/Getty Images Hilton first met Zylka at an Oscars party almost a decade ago, but they reconnected two years ago before Hilton made things Instagram official last February. “Ever since our first date I knew there was something special about him,” Hilton 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 seems to feel the same way. He even got a tattoo of Paris's name on his arm last July, so it isn't too surprising that a ring followed.

I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
