The second least controversial Hilton — Barron Hilton II — is engaged to be married. OK!
Page Six reports that the Hilton heir — younger brother to Paris and Nicky, older brother to the very troubled Conrad — proposed to his longtime girlfriend last week by the pond in Central Park because of course he did. She is a socialite, and her name is Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff. Which is frankly more “Gossip Girl” than “Gossip Girl” was. And you thought Serena Van der Woodsen was pure tomfoolery.
The couple plans to marry next year, and will likely continue to post inane pictures of each other on their respective Instagrams in the meantime. Barron’s parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, are reportedly “delighted about the engagement, as are his sisters, Paris and Nicky. They think Tessa is a great influence on Barron and she has calmed down his partying ways.”
Partying ways, of course, refers to the time he was hit with a $4.6 million DUI fine stemming from a car accident in 2008. Or, perhaps it refers to the time in 2013 when Barron, now 27, made headlines for being punched in the face while partying at Art Basel. Lindsay Lohan was there!
And that concludes your bi-monthly update on the Hilton family. You’re welcome.
