Paris Hilton thinks Chris Zylka is ''the one''.

The 36-year-old DJ and socialite couldn't be happier with the 31-year-old actor and recently confessed just how much he means to her.

Speaking to TMZ cameramen at the airport on the way to Miami for Ultra Music festival, Paris was asked if he was ''the one'', to which she nodded in response, adding for people to ''stay tuned'' about their budding romance.

And despite her new found love, the blonde beauty recently insisted she doesn't need ''anyone to validate her happiness''.

She said: ''I love being single. Before, I could never be alone. I always needed a boyfriend. Now, I feel so independent and I am so happy with myself. I don't need anyone to validate my happiness.''

Whilst she rose to fame starring on 'The Simple Life' with Nicole Richie, Paris wants to turn her back on her reality star routes and would prefer to be known as a businesswoman.

She added: ''I want to be known as a businesswoman. I don't want to be known as a reality TV star. I don't like the way that sounds ...

''I have really grown past that ... spoiled, materialistic, bratty [persona]. Now I mostly focus on my empire and my brand, rather than everything else that comes with the reality star kind of life ... I spend my time working rather than just enjoying myself and being on vacation.''

And Paris is keen to be ''an inspiration'' to other women who might want to make it in the business world.

She said: ''I love that I can be a role model and inspiration to young women. I am all about girl power. I love being an inspiration to girls who want to be independent women and build their own brand and business and showing them that if you work hard and focus, dreams can come true.

''My advice would be to continue to work hard and surround yourself with good people and a great team who really want the best for you. Also, don't let it get to your head and always treat your fans with love and respect.''
