Romeo and Juliet Act 4 scene 1

What is ironic about the conversation between Juliet and Paris? Juliet and Paris talk about love and confession of love to each other. Juliet actually confesses her love to Paris but Paris in unaware of her “confession” (loving Romeo) (This is an example of dramatic irony)
