As a follow-up to the GossipCenter’s previous report, Nicky Hilton is confirmed to be engaged to James Rothschild thanks to her sister Paris Hilton’s penchant for social media.

The “Simple Life” lady tweeted, "Congratulations @NickyHilton on your engagement! I'm so happy for you! You will be the most beautiful bride!"

According to an Us Weekly source, James popped the question to his heiress hottie while on holiday in Lake Como, Italy last weekend.

The insider explained, "They are both really excited and incredibly happy. They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend. 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."

And it sounds like James took extra measures to make sure the proposal was perfect. "Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!"
