Today, at the beginning of the year 2018, we can officially declare the 2000s over. Paris Hilton is engaged to the American actor and model Chris Zylka.
Zylka popped the question during a ski trip in Colorado over the New Year‘s weekend. One of the photos in her slideshow – the same one up the top there – shows off the ring, and it is indeed exceptionally large. Too large? That’s for you to judge. I’m simply a humble content farmer.
“I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend,” Hilton told 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!”
Zylka’s best known for appearing in that show The Leftovers as Tom Garvey from 2014 – 2017, though he’s popped up in a bunch of things – including playing bully Flash Thompson in the Amazing Spider-Man films. His scenes were cut from the second one, though. Sad!
“Paris is the most beautiful and incredible woman both inside and out,” Zylka told PEOPLE, in a statement presumably engineered in a secret laboratory by PR experts. “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.”
True love: it’s hot.
