While it seems like Paris Hilton may have finally found her forever man, this isn't the first time fans have watched a romance blossom for her. Notably, the heiress' romance with Carter Reum bloomed after one of her most devastating breakups.

Carter Reum is super supportive of Paris Hilton

While Paris Hilton posts about her man left and right, Carter Reum's social media pages are practically devoid of any trace of the heiress.

When The Simple Life Star released the This Is Paris documentary on September 14, 2020, Carter supported her all the way — even though Paris Hilton's documentary shows a different side of the star. He took to Instagram with a post praising her eye-opening film. "So proud of @parishilton and not only the success of her documentary #thisispsris but how she's using her platform for positive change," he wrote.

Carter is referring to the abuse Paris suffered as a teen at a Utah boarding school she attended, which she discussed in the documentary, as noted by People. By releasing the personal flick, Paris shared a new side of herself with the world. Even as fans saw the less-than-perfect parts of Paris, Carter stood by her side.

For as often as Paris' past relationships have made headlines time and time again, she's finally letting her past romance woes go. "I don't think I was ready for it before," she continued, adding that it took time to find the right fit. "I just always wanted what my mom and dad have. They're best friends, he's so loyal." She added that she'd been searching for that for a long time, but never in the right places.

Ultimately, that's exactly what Hilton found, and we're so happy for her. "Carter actually reminds me of my dad! He makes me feel safe and happy. I finally found the right one."
