Paris Hilton wants to settle down with her 21-year-old boyfriend.

The 32-year-old former reality TV star - who was jailed in 2007 after being caught driving with a suspended licence while on probation for driving under the influence - says she is no longer a party girl and hopes to have children in the near future with model River Viiperi.

The blonde heiress told 'The Wendy Williams Show': ''I'm staying out of trouble. I've grown up.''

Asked if she is ready to start a family, she said: ''I think that's every woman's dream. I think that's the meaning of life to have children and have a family one-day.

''I am so in love. I feel so lucky to have met him. He's one of the kindest, most loyal men I've ever met in my entire life, and he treats me like a princess.

''He's the most beautiful man I've ever seen in my life.''

The socialite met the Spanish hunk when she was attended the Marlon Gobel show last year at the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week with DT Model Management owner David Todd and the pair hit it off.

Paris, who previously dated DJ Afrojack, Benji Madden and Nick Carter, was engaged twice in the past to shipping heir Paris Latsis and to model Jason Shaw but plans to focus on her growing her own brand instead of putting pressure on River to propose soon.

She said: ''I just opened my 44th store in Colombia last week and we're expanding all around the world. I'm getting into the hotel business and following in my family's footsteps. I love it.''
