As you may know, Paris Hilton is now engaged to Carter Reum, after he popped the big question in a romantic private island proposal. That being said, the heiress opened up about the whole thing while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, revealing how he played it cool, surprising her at the time.
In other words, Paris was apparently taken by total surprise when it happened and nothing had prepared her for the special moment.
Paris explained that she actually suspected her man would get on one knee months before, while they were on another vacation together.
However, it obviously did not happen back then, which made her less likely to expect it the second time around.
‘We had gone on another trip to Bora Bora for our anniversary and he had a really romantic dinner set up, with all of these shells and things that said ‘I love you.’ Then the whole dinner I was just expecting a ring to come on. Then, at the end, dessert came, and I thought there would be a ring in the cake. So at the end I was like, ‘You know, I am a little bit bummed, I thought you were going to propose. This would be the perfect place.’ He said, ‘When I do it, it’s going to be incredible.”
And sure enough, he was right!
The proposal actually happened on her birthday, while the couple was on yet another island vacation.
That day, Paris and Carter had a photoshoot in their schedule, but that was really only a cover for his actual plans!
Paris shared that ‘I think to make me feel like it wasn’t going to happen, he was like, ‘If you’re not ready in time, we can chill, just do it another day.’ So then I did not think it was happening. He tricked me. We got down to the beach, and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was one of the most romantic moments of my life.’
