Entrepreneur and hotel heiress Paris Hilton has finally made her one-year relationship with Carter Reum Instagram official. On Thursday, the socialite posted a photo of herself with Reum to celebrate their one-year dating anniversary.
The photo featured Hilton and Reum sharing a kiss, and it was the first time HIlton has ever posted about her boyfriend on any social media platform.
“Happy Anniversary my love. My favorite thing to do is make memories with you. Your kisses are magical.⚡️ I love being yours and knowing you’re mine, 😍😍” wrote Hilton in the caption.
Hilton posted more pics with Reum on her Instagram Story, but he actually deleted his personal Instagram account earlier this year due to privacy concerns after rumors started swirling that he and Hilton were an item.
Many of Hilton’s famous friends and a number of her 11.9 million followers posted messages of support and congratulations. Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, and Larsa Pippen all commented with heart emojis, and Paris’ mom Kathy Hilton wrote: “So sweet!!!! Love this.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”
Even though they have been dating for a year, Hilton and Reum have kept their relationship under wraps and have made limited public appearances together. They were spotted together back in January at the Warner Bros. & InStyle party after the Golden Globes, marking their first public appearance as a couple.
According to People magazine, it was the first time Hilton was spotted out on a date since her split from fiance Chris Zylka in 2018. “They are dating and happy,” a source told the outlet at the time.
Hilton and Zylka were engaged for almost a year after he popped the question with a 20-carat, $2 million pear-shaped engagement ring during a New Year’s weekend ski trip in Aspen, Colorado. They announced their engagement on January 2, 2018, but called things off 11 months later.

After the split, an insider claimed that HIlton’s relationship with Zylka “moved very fast,” and she ultimately realized it wasn’t right for her. Before she started her relationship with Reum, Hilton said she was enjoying some “me time” after her breakup with Zylka.
“I just feel that when I fall in love, I fall in love fast and hard and it was this whirlwind romance…and I thought it was going to be my happy ending, and I just realized after time it wasn’t the right decision,” said HIlton on The Talk.
The 39-year-old went on to say that one day she would love to get married and have kids, but after the split she was focused on herself and her work.
As for Reum, he is a longtime Hilton family friend who is also an entrepreneur and author. He co-founded the VEEV Spirits liquor brand with his brother, Courtney Reum, and Inc. Magazine included the business on their list of 500 fastest growing private companies in America.
