The new year is kicking off with a bang for Paris Hilton, who announced on Tuesday that she's engaged to actor Chris Zylka.

Later, Hilton told PEOPLE that she'd had a good feeling about him from the very beginning. Hilton said in her Instagram caption that she feels "like the luckiest girl in the world". Flawless for me in every way.

Hilton said herself that the entire proposal was a surprise, but it turns out that the surprise included the ring's design. He's my everything. I'm so happy and excited to have someone who is my best friend, who I trust. Ideal for me in every way. "So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted", she captioned the pictures.

Speaking to People Magazine, Zylka described Hilton as "the most lovely and incredible woman both inside and out", and said: "I feel like the luckiest man in the world to be marrying my dream girl. You are my dream come true!", she wrote. And said cause I'm his most magical place on Earth & he finally found his fairytale princess.

People Magazine reported the pair first met at an Oscars party eight years ago, but the duo didn't reconnect until two years later. "I knew right from the start that I wanted to be with him forever".

The hotel heiress is now sporting the giant ring thanks to Zylka, but with her net worth, it's something she could've afforded herself quite a few times over. "I loved it", Kim recalled on Watch What Happens Live.

Once the news broke, a source told Page Six, "They have never been happier and they make the ideal couple". "So in my private time, I would much rather be at home in bed watching TV with my boyfriend and puppies than out at a club".
