The self-described creator of the selfie is about to tie the knot.

Paris Hilton, the granddaughter of the Hilton Hotels founder who rose to fame in the early 2000s, made the announcement of her engagement on Twitter.

The 36-year-old described her engagement as "hot" before launching into a passionate proclamation of her love for beau Chris Zylka.

"I said Yas! So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kind-hearted.

"I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true!"

Zylka, a US actor best known for his starring role in critically panned Piranha 3DD, met Hilton at an Oscars party eight years ago - but the pair didn't start their relationship until February 2017.

He popped the question on the snowy slopes of Aspen, Colorado.

Hilton shared an image showing off the ginormous 20-carat diamond ring he gave her in all its glory.

"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 told People Magazine.
