Nicky Hilton Rothschild has a wedding in the works!

The Hilton Hotels heiress is engaged to James Rothschild, heir to the famous European banking family. Nicky's sister Paris Hilton confirmed the news via Instagram Wednesday, writing, "Congratulations @NickyHilton on your engagement! I'm so happy for you! You will be the most beautiful bride!"

"Such a lovely couple!" the singer/DJ added. "Love you both so much!"

The couple began dating in 2011 after meeting at Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt's wedding in Italy. As such, James decided to propose in the same country. "They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend. He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything," a source told Us Weekly Tuesday. "It was incredibly romantic and beautiful."

Neither Nicky nor James has commented on their upcoming nuptials.

Since the engagement, Nicky and James have been touring Lake Como, Milan and Rome. In addition to wedding planning, Nicky has also been busy preparing for the Sept. 2 release of her book, 365 Style.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
