Hollywood hardman Bruce Willis is to marry his BAYWATCH star girlfriend Brooke Burns, after she accepted his romantic proposal in a Paris limousine.

The Die Hard actor, 49, purchased a CARTIER diamond ring in the French capital last week (ends02APR04) and slipped it on the 26-year-old Texan beauty's finger as they were enjoying a chauffeur-driven ride through the city.

Burns has since been photographed proudly sporting the engagement trinket.

A pal says, "He asked the driver and his bodyguard to leave the vehicle when they were on the Champs-Elysees (famous Paris street).

"When they stepped out Brooke looked so happy, there was a tear in her eye."

News of Willis' impending marriage comes just days after Ashton Kutcher rubbished reports he's planning to wed the actor's former wife Demi Moore.
