Paris Hilton is officially dating HBO actor Chris Zylka and looks really, really happy
After two straight seasons of painful Hilton-Richards family feuding on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we’re legitimately thrilled to see one member of that famous clan actually looking happy: Paris Hilton, who is officially dating Chris Zylka from The Leftovers. (Which you should definitely binge-watch before it returns for its third and final season on HBO this spring, btw.)
Hilton announced her big “news” via a stream of photos on Instagram Sunday night. She captioned the photos with words like “#valentine” and “live love sparkle” — including plenty of heart emojis for good measure, of course — and looked super, super happy to be spending her weekend in Zylka’s arms.
Hilton, who turned 36 on Friday, previously dated Greek shipping heir-slash-socialite Paris Latsis, Greek shipping heir Stavros Nicharos (notice a theme?), ex-baseball star Doug Reinhardt, Cy Waits, and — most recently — Thomas Gross.
Zylka, who is 31, has famously dated Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and model Hanna Beth Merjos.
A source told E! News that Hilton and Zylka “really like each other” and are “taking it slow,” which sounds like a pretty solid strategy.
However, “slow” for Hilton and Zylka does apparently include bi-coastal couple trips. They were spotted together at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Sunday, after spending Thursday night living it up in NYC for Hilton’s celeb-studded birthday bash.
We hope these two crazy kids can make it work!
