Paris Hilton has found her match in Carter Reum

Two years after the heiress and entrepreneur called off her engagement to Chris Zylka, Paris has found love again with a man she calls her "twin flame." 

Paris and the entrepreneur first went public with their budding romance at a 2020 Golden Globes after-party, but their bond actually formed a few months prior. In honor of their one-year anniversary on Nov. 29, Carter surprised Paris with a tropical escape to Bora Bora. 

The DJ shared a number of romantic snapshots from their escapade with E! News, also articulating why she's convinced Carter is her soulmate

"This is the first time in my life where I am with my equal," Paris explains. "He wants nothing from me but my love. It's such an incredible feeling to know that, and this is the first time in my life where I have let down my walls and opened my heart to someone."

Calling Bora Bora "one of my favorite places in the world," Paris gushes, "We had the best time together, going on adventures, water skiing, swimming with sharks, turtles and all the beautiful sea life, wakeboarding, jet skiing and swimming in the beautiful warm turquoise waters.

Feeling Grateful

Over the 2020 Thanksgiving holiday, Paris spends time with Carter's family at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, Calif.

"I love how close his family is," she says. "They are such kind and genuine people. We all always have the best time together and it's so nice to spend so much time together."

A Perfect Match

Mwah! 

A New Chapter

Paris' 2020 documentary explored her troubled childhood, an aspect of her personal life that she says impacted her romantic relationships. 

"After what I have been through in life, I was very protective of my heart and letting people in," she explains. "But with Carter it all just happened so naturally—like he was the one I had waited my whole life for. So I'm so happy that I was patient and waited for The One."

A Year They'll Never Forget

Despite such a "crazy and scary" year due to the pandemic, Paris says, "I always try and see the silver lining in everything, and I am so grateful to have had Carter in my life. I can't imagine being single and alone during all this."

"Plus, it brought us even closer being able to spend 24/7 together," she continues. "I'm used to traveling all around the world over 250 days a year, so this is the first time I've been in one place. Carter and I always say to each other that being together like this has literally been like being in a five-year relationship. I've never felt closer to a person in my life."
