Hilton, 36, and Zylka, 32, have been dating for about two years now, though they first met long before that -- eight years ago at an Oscars party.

"Ever since our first date I knew there was something special about him," Hilton said about Zylka. "I have never in my life met a man so loyal, dedicated, and loving. I knew right from the start that I wanted to be with him forever."

Zylka echoed Hilton's sentiments in a statement of his own.

"Paris is the most beautiful and incredible woman both inside and out," Zylka told People of his fiancée. "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."

As for her ring, the couple didn't share many details, but Hilton called it "so gorgeous and sparkling."

"I was shaking as I put it on," Hilton said. "It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!"

Congrats to Paris and Chris!

UPDATE: Paris Hilton took to Twitter after her engagement announcement to share the news with her followers in the most Paris Hilton way possible.
