Is Paris Hilton Getting Ready to Wed?
By Christine Fenno Posted Feb 20th 2011 02:44PM
Paris Hilton marked a milestone birthday last week, turning 30 with boyfriend Cy Waits at her side. And when she called in to chat with Ryan Seacrest on her big day, she confided (to all Seacrest's listeners) that she was "sure" Waits would propose to her. "We love each other very much," she said, adding with a giggle, "We'll see what happens."
Engagement rumors escalated Friday when Hilton and Waits were spotted in a luxury jewelry store in Manhattan. A source tells People.com, "They shopped for engagement rings....They were really cute together. Paris was making comments about the rings, and joking that her ring has to be at least 24 carats."
While there's been no confirmation of an engagement-related purchase, Waits allegedly bought her a $25,000 "white gold and black diamond" ring, a gift which Hilton's rep has since called "something special for Paris' 30th birthday."
Bling wasn't the only gift Waits gave Hilton: The big-spender boyfriend also bought her a new white Lexus. "It's so sick," marveled Hilton, while chatting about the car on Seacrest's show.
The couple began dating in 2010, and weathered tumultuous times last year, with Hilton's felony cocaine bust and Waits' related DUI arrest. The incident led to him being fired by Vegas casino tycoon Steve Wynn. A friend told E! last year why the two are a perfect match: Unlike Hilton and some of her previous beaus, "He is very shy and doesn't crave media attention."
Hilton remains optimistic about both her romance with Waits, and the relaunch of her TV career, as she looks forward to starring (with her mother) on a new Oxygen reality series later this year.
