Congratulations are in order for Nicky Hilton and her fiance James Rothschild as the two have just announced that they are engaged to be married! A source has confirmed that the hotel heiress is set to tie the knot with the banking heir.
“They are both really excited and incredibly happy,” the insider tells Us of the pair.
Hilton, 30, and Rothschild (the heir to the famous European banking family) started dating in 2011 after meeting at supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt’s wedding in Italy. The sentimental spot was the ideal setting for Rothschild to propose.
“They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend,” the source reveals. “He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything. It was incredibly romantic and beautiful.”
Rothschild, it turns out, went to great lengths to make sure all the details were secured before he popped the question. The insider tells Us: “Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!”
Now that she’s said “yes,” the newly-engaged couple are celebrating with an engagement-moon of sorts. “They are going on a road trip now throughout Europe and celebrating,” the pal tells Us.
Congratulations to them on their happy news!
