Paris Hilton has announced she is engaged to her partner Carter Reum.

The 40-year-old shared photographs of the proposal on social media.

The couple, both dressed in white, can be seen embracing after Reum had popped the question.

Hilton tweeted: "When you find your soulmate, you don't just know it. You feel it.

"This weekend, Carter dropped to one knee. & I said yes, yes to forever.

"There's no one I'd rather spend forever with."

Hilton has been dating the 40-year-old venture capitalist since 2019.

She wrote of the proposal on her website: "A peaceful pre-dinner walk on the beach turned into much more when Carter dropped to one knee.

"It was the kind of proposal I had always dreamed of, followed by a special celebration with family and close friends."

She added: "With Carter by my side, I know that anything is possible. He accepts me for who I am and encourages me to show my true self. I'm eternally grateful to have him in my life."

Hilton is a great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton - the founder of Hilton Hotels.

She featured in the reality TV series The Simple Life between 2003 and 2007 - and has cultivated a career as a businesswoman, a model, a singer and an actress.
