Paris Hilton is a new mom, announcing that she and husband Carter Reum welcomed a baby boy at the beginning of the year.
The heiress confirmed the happy news that their baby arrived via surrogate earlier this month to People, telling the outlet, “It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other. We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.” She also shared that there’s been a new addition to their family on social media, posting a photo of her hand holding her newborn son’s hand on Instagram and writing in the caption, “You are already loved beyond words,” with a blue heart emoji.
Since marrying Reum in November 2021, Hilton has been very vocal about her desire to become a mother. In December of last year, she also told the magazine that she and the venture capitalist had begun the process of in-vitro fertilization during the height of the pandemic in the hopes of getting pregnant. “We started going and doing it like a few months in because the world was shut down,” she said. “We knew we wanted to start a family, and I was like, ‘This is perfect timing. Usually, I’m on a plane 250 days out of the year, and let’s just get all of the eggs stocked and ready,’ and we have tons of them just waiting.”
And in an April 2022 episode of The Bellas Podcast, Hilton revealed that married life with Reum had been nothing short of wedded bliss so far and she couldn’t wait to grow their family together. The Simple Life star said of her new husband, “I love being married. I just feel like I finally found my perfect match and I just feel so safe. I finally have my home and I just can’t wait to start a family and have kids.” She added that having children has always been a part of the couple’s plan as they’d “been talking about kids since the beginning—since the first couple, like, months of dating,” and they “would love to have twins.” Ultimately, she noted, they’re hoping to have “three or four” children together.
Back in November, Hilton also dropped a hint that her baby was on his way via her Instagram Stories. She wrote, “I’m getting tons of messages of people asking me when I’m having a baby. The truth is my husband and I always wanted to enjoy our first year of marriage together as a couple and we we’re [sic] always planning on starting our family in 2023.” She continued, “IVF is always a journey for everyone but we’re so fortunate that we have lots of healthy embryos ready and waiting to be part of our Cutesy Crew! As everyone knows I have an extremely busy work and travel scheduled but nothing gets me more excited then [sic] becoming a mom in 2023! Thank you for all your kind messages!”
