According to People, James secretly visited the US before their trip to Italy in order to ask Nicky's parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, for permission.

Nicky and James are still on holiday in Europe and Nicky, 30, has been keeping fans updated on their travels via Instagram.

So far she hasn't referenced the engagement or given us a glimpse at her (sure to be gorgeous) engagement ring. Come on, Nicky!
