It’s hard to imagine, but there used to be a time when the Kardashians were not so famous. Reality TV was ruled by another name. The now 36-year-old Paris Hilton used to be the it-girl before Kim came to the scene to become number one. Hilton was one of the first modern ‘celebrity socialites’ who became famous in her own special way. The star is the granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels. She began her career as a model at Donald Trump’s modelling agency and later made headlines for other reasons, including her own reality TV show, a failed music career, several cameos in movies and, the infamous sex tape 1 Night in Paris. Nowadays, the star is engaged! She announced it by a sweet post on her Instagram profile.
When the Kardashians came on the scene, Hilton’s fame quickly fell. It is interesting because Kim used to work as Paris’s stylist, but eventually released her own sex tape and became one of the most recognizable faces in the world.
Paris decided to take a step back from the public ey herself for the past few years. It seems like she is happier than ever after announcing that she is engaged to actor Chris Zylka two days ago. According to PEOPLE, Zylka popped the question while they were on a a skiing holiday in Colorado over the weekend.
“I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend,” Hilton tells PEOPLE. “I have never felt so happy, safe and loved. He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales really do exist!”
“I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!” The star also spoke about her ring. “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!”
Chris, on the other hand, said: “Paris is 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.”
A week ago, Hilton posted an emotional picture on Instagram and declared her love for Zylka.
Never in a million years did I think I would find someone so completely perfect for me. 😍Someone who would make me happier than I ever dreamed I could be. Someone that would touch my life so profoundly & give me a whole new reason to breathe. But then I found you & realized that everything I anticipated you to be doesn’t even compare to how incredibly amazing you are… 😍 #MyLove
