Paris Hilton says ‘Yas!’ to boyfriend’s proposal

Chris Zylka popped the question in the snows of Aspen

“I said Yas!” With those three little words, hotel heiress Paris Hilton announced her engagement on her Instagram account, which has nearly eight million followers. She shared: “So happy and excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist.”

It was a pretty dreamy proposal as beau Chris Zylka went down on one knee in the snow while the couple were on holiday in the swish US ski resort of Aspen, in Colorado. The ring box he held contained a huge tear drop-shaped rock, costing a bomb price of $2 Million, and the couple kissed when Parissaid yes.


Hilton, 36, and Zylka, 32, have been dating for about two years after meeting eight years ago. They had made their relationship official in February last year. She often posts on Instagram about her partner, who had starred in the US drama series ‘The Leftovers’ as well as animal attack movies Shark Night and Piranha 3DD. Chris also bagged roles in The Amazing Spider Man and TV shows including ‘90210’ and ‘Twisted’.

Zylka sounds smitten by his famous fiancée, whom he has described as “the most beautiful and incredible woman both inside and out.” “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,” he said of the heiress, who became a household name after starring in the reality show ‘The Simple Life’.
Chris Zylka is of Ukrainian descent and was raised in Youngstown, Ohio. He had dropped out of the University of Toledo and moved to California to follow his acting career. He has revealed in the past that he was homeless during that time until his manager discovered him while he was working an odd job at a restaurant. He had got Paris’s name tattooed on his arm just months after they started dating.
