Paris Hilton will be busy planning the biggest party of her life after getting engaged to boyfriend Carter Reum.
The happy couple announced the news on Paris’ 40th birthday on Tuesday, just three days after Carter popped the question during their romantic Valentine’s getaway on an exotic island.
Fans are now hoping to get a closer glimpse at the man Paris will be calling her husband and, of course, we’ve got the lowdown…
Who is Carter Reum?
Carter, 40, is a venture capitalist and founder of M13, an investor firm.
He boasts an impressive portfolio of startups he’s invested in, including Snapchat, Pinterest, Lyft, Rothy’s and Daily Harvest.
The businessman has a close relationship with his brother Courtney and together, co-wrote and published the book, Shortcut Your Startup: 10 Ways To Speed Up Entrepreneurial Success, in 2018.
Clearly they work well together as they previously ran the natural alcohol brand Veev Spirits, but sold the company in 2016.
Although he’s not as accustomed to the spotlight as much as his fiancee, Carter has appeared on TV networks such as CBS and Fox News as a commentator.
Carter hails from Chicago and attended Columbia University. His father, Robert Reum, is the CEO of Amsted Industries, one of the largest private companies in the US.
How did Paris Hilton and Carter Reum meet?
Paris and Carter began dating in 2019 after meeting properly through mutual friends – they had run in the same social circles for years.
The couple made their debut at the Golden Globes and Warner Bros. after party in 2020 and have been inseparable since.
Their relationship developed even more in lockdown last year and Paris told Vogue Australia: ‘We both are business people, so we do our work during the day and then at night we cook together and watch movies and play with the puppy.
‘It’s just been an amazing time to be together and I’m really enjoying it.’
How many times has Paris Hilton been engaged?
Paris has been engaged three times before.
First to Jason Shaw between 2002 and 2003; to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis from 2004 until 2005; and then to actor Chris Zylka in 2018.
Opening up about her split from Chris, recently said it was the ‘best decision [she’s] ever made in [her] life’.
She added to Cosmopolitan UK: ‘I just don’t think [he] was the right person and I feel like I’m an incredible woman and I deserve someone so amazing.
‘It just didn’t feel right. I’ve worked way too hard to just give my life to someone. They have to be perfect.’
Does Paris Hilton have any children?
Paris doesn’t have any children just yet but she’s already started the journey to becoming a mother.
The former My Simple Life star has begun IVF in order to have children with Carter after previously freezing her eggs.
‘I really do believe that having a family and having children is the meaning of life. I haven’t got to experience that yet because I don’t feel that anyone really deserved that love from me and now I’ve finally found the person who does, so I cannot wait for that next step,’ she said on the Trend Report with Mara podcast.
‘We have been doing the IVF, so I can pick twins if I like. Kim [Kardashian] is actually the one who told me about that. I didn’t even know anything about it.’
