Nicky Hilton Engaged to Banking Heir Boyfriend James Rothschild

Nicky Hilton, James RothschildHilton Hotels heiress Nicky Hilton (and Paris Hilton's little sister) is engaged to long-time boyfriend James Rothschild, a source confirmed to Us Weekly. The fashion designer has been dating the heir to the famous European banking business since 2011, after meeting at supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt's wedding in Italy.

The proposal was apparently well planned and perfect and of course in Italy, at Lake Como, because that's the country where they met, and hey, we are talking about heirs here. It only seems natural.

The source told the mag, "They are both really excited and incredibly happy ... they went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend." The insider continued, "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 was ever the gentleman and even did the old-fashioned asking-for-her-hand thing with her dad. Us got the scoop that he made a special trip recently to meet with Nicky's dad. They revealed, "Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!"

It was a resounding "yes" all around apparently, and now the newly engaged couple is celebrating with a road trip through Europe.

Aww, congrats to the happy couple!

Do you think this proposal sounds romantic?
