Barron Hilton Engaged to Socialite Girlfriend


Paris Hilton’s younger brother Barron Hilton is engaged to socialite Tessa Grafin Von Walderdorff.

The 27-year-old popped the question last week (ends01Oct17) by a pond in New York’s Central Park.

Since then, Tessa has shared a picture of the pair kissing in front of the park’s Gapstow Bridge on her Instagram page, and captioned it: “Better than a fairytale… engaged to my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life. Forever and for always @barronhilton.”

According to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, Barron and Tessa are planning to wed next year, and the engagement news has been welcomed by his parents Rick and Kathy Hilton.

“They are 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,” a source told the outlet.

Barron has hit headlines in the past, such as when he was fined $4.6 million for a DUI charge stemming from a 2008 car accident. He also made the news in 2013, when he was reportedly attacked and punched in the face while partying with friends including Lindsay Lohan at the Art Basel Miami Beach festival.
