Everyone's fave hotel heiress is getting ready to walk down the aisle, y'all. And even though Paris Hilton and Carter Reum's relationship timeline has been a total whirlwind, it seems to me the heiress and the entrepreneur are the real deal. Soon after Hilton announced their Feb. 13 engagement, she told the story of how the proposal went down, and it's incredibly sweet.
As Hilton explained on the Feb. 22 episode of her new podcast, This Is Paris, Reum popped the question while they were celebrating her 40th birthday on a private island. The big moment happened on their second night in paradise. "We walked down to the beach and... as soon as we got on the sand, all of the sudden he got down on one knee and started saying this whole speech," she recalled. "It was just, like, really, really sweet and then I just started shaking and crying because I was so excited and so happy." Cute!
Though Hilton has dated her fair share of models, rockstars, actors, and shipping heirs over the years (and has even called off three engagements), she and Reum seem like they're in it for the long haul. Here's their love story from the very beginning.
