Break out the champagne! Heiress/DJ/Perfume mogul/Boarding school reformer Paris Hilton announced via Instagram that she and her entrepreneur BF, Carter Reum, got engaged over the weekend on a private island.
She was there, celebrating her milestone birthday – 40! Can you believe it? – when Carter proposed with a ring reportedly designed by Jean Dousset … the great-grandson of Louis Cartier.
She posted a video showing Carter decked out in an all-white suit and down on one knee. She said, “When you find your soulmate you don’t just know it. You feel it.
“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. Here’s to Love – the Forever Kind 💋”
Paris and Carter, a Chicago native and venture capitalist, have been dating for a little over a year now but have known each other for 15 years. He’s a longtime family friend … so it makes sense why Paris’ sister, Nicky, and Carter’s brother, Courtney, were also on the island to celebrate the occasion. PEOPLE was first to report the engagement news.
This is Paris’ fourth engagement. Before Carter was model Jason Shaw in 2002, Greek shipping heir Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis in 2005 and actor Chris Zylka in 2018.
