Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, Carter Reum, are Instagram official. On April 29, Paris posted an adorable photo of them sharing a kiss in celebration of their first anniversary. The Instagram post marked the first time she publicly referred to him as her boyfriend. 

The heiress and the business mogul have been dating for over a year. They aimed to keep the relationship a private affair up until now, and they were only spotted together a few times. 

So, who exactly is Carter Reum? 

Paris Hilton and Carter Reum have been together for a year.

The first time rumors about Paris and Carter got out was in December 2019, when the business mogul posted a Christmas family photo on Instagram that saw Paris sitting on his lap. 

The photo kick-started a great deal of social media frenzy. Carter deleted his personal Instagram account a few days later, Page Six reports. Since then, the couple tried to keep a low profile.

They were only spotted together on a few occasions, like the InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes 2020 afterparty.  As an insider told The Daily Mail, Paris was seen stroking the back of Carter's neck and holding her hands around his shoulders throughout the night. 

On Feb. 24, Paris and Carter were seen at the Los Angeles International Airport, where they exchanged a passionate kiss while passing through one of the terminals.
