The Hilton heiress shared the romantic moment when Chris Zylka got down on one knee and presented her with a box containing her huge engagement ring.
Chris, 32, asked her to marry him on a snowy mountainside in Aspen, Colorado, and arranged for a pal to film the special occasion, which she shared on social media.
She captioned the moment: “The most romantic moment of my life!”
And although the setting and Chris’ efforts certainly appeared romantic, fans commented on the reality TV star’s hilarious reaction to his question.
Immediately after Paris, 36, realised what Chris was doing, she lunged at him and grabbed the box with the ring inside and slipped on the huge pear shaped rock, starring at it in glee.
Her were in hysterics at her enthusiasm, with one writing: “She put the ring on herself lmaoooo”

Another said, “I felt bad for him lmaooo” while another pondered, “The fact that you were more focused on the ring, does not bode well for a marriage.”
However, others disagreed, saying she was simply caught up in the moment and was excited.
Meanwhile, Chris chose the huge pear shaped rock because it is inspired by Paris’ mother’s own jewellery.
Diamond expert and celebrity jeweler Michael Greene told People magazine: “Paris at one point in time told Chris she really loved her mother’s pear-shaped diamond, and when Chris came to me that was his request.
“The pear-shaped really jumped out for him and ultimately for her. He did some fishing, but in the end it was all him. He’s a smart guy, and hangs out a lot with the family, and I think she realised how much she liked her mom’s ring.”
Paris and Chris confirmed their engagement earlier on Tuesday, with Paris admitting she “immediately said yes” when he popped the question on the ski slopes.
“I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend. I have never felt so happy, safe and loved.
“He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales really do exist. I was so excited and surprised. I immediately said yes. The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen,” she said in a statement.
Whilst Chris added: “Paris is the most beautiful and incredible woman both inside and out. 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.”
