Paris Hilton reckons she’ll marry Doug Reinhardt.

The socialite started dating the baseball player, 23, in February.

‘We’re best friends,’ Paris tells E! Online. ‘It’s not like we just met. We’ve known each other over the past year.

‘I was in a relationship before and we reconnected. I’m really in love and really happy.’

Asked if they had any plans to get engaged, she giggled: ‘He’s going to be my husband.’

Paris, 28, split from Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden in November after a nine-month romance.

Last week, her mum Kathy played down reports of an engagement.
