LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Ubiquitous socialite Paris Hilton is engaged to marry her boyfriend of five months, Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, People magazine reported on its Web site on Monday.
"They are happy and excited," Hilton's spokesman, Rob Shuter, was quoted as telling the magazine. It said that Latsis proposed last Wednesday and that no date has been set for the wedding.
This will be the first marriage for both. Hilton, 24, was beaten to the altar last August by her younger sister, Nicky, but the union was annulled after less than three months. Latsis is 27, according to People.
Paris Hilton, an heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune, is a magnet for drama, whether inadvertently starring in a popular sex tape or having her electronic organizer stolen and its contents posted on the Internet.
She currently co-stars in the movie "House of Wax," eliciting audience cheers when her character is killed off. She also features in a sexy TV commercial for a burger chain.
