Paris Hilton has new bragging rights as a proud mother of one!
The real-life barbie doll needs no introduction as one of the celebrities who popularised the phrase “famous for being famous.” With her model-worthy figure and DJ skills, the blonde bombshell frequently made headlines for her luxurious lifestyle.
Now, the 41-year-old is sharing her spotlight with a new member of the family, her first child. Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, recently welcomed their bundle of joy, and the spouses could not have done it without Kim Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian Kicks Off The Congratulations Following The Announcement Of Paris Hilton’s First Child
The new year comes with new goals, and the “House of Wax” actress is on the right track with motherhood on her plate. After ticking off marriage in 2021, the New Yorker finally added parent to her ever-growing list of accolades.
The Blast shared the exciting news after the proud mother surprised fans with an adorable snap of her newborn on January 24. Taking to her Instagram page, the businesswoman uploaded a picture of her child holding her hand.
In the heartwarming image, the hotel heiress rocked perfectly manicured nails with a light pale blue paint while the baby’s tiny fingers were tightly wrapped around his mother’s thumb. Although the DJ did not reveal her child’s face, the blue nail polish hinted at the baby’s male gender.
Additionally, Hilton and Reum shared no details about the newborn’s arrival, and the boy presumably arrived via surrogacy. The socialite did not debut any baby bump or pregnancy updates before her son’s birth. Nonetheless, the 41-year-old’s excitement shone brightly in the accompanying caption.
“You are already loved beyond words,” the model gushed, adding a blue heart emoji to show her child’s male gender. Naturally shocked by the big news, fans and friends flooded the comment section congratulating the happy parents.
The star-studded list included Elle Fanning, Carmella Rose, Olivia Culpo, Morgan Stewart, and Chrissy Teigen, who recently welcomed her third child. Among these positive messages came Kim Kardashian, an essential player in Hilton’s motherhood journey and a close friend.
The reality TV star captured her delight at the news with a heart emoticon alongside the simple statement, “so happy for you guys!!!” Per reports, the California native has been a crucial part of the “This is Paris” star’s journey to motherhood. From attending the couple’s lavish Bel-Air wedding to introducing them to a fertility specialist.
Hilton previously revealed her plans to welcome her first child via surrogacy and embarked on the IVF journey months before the Coronavirus pandemic swept the world. In 2021, the entrepreneur discussed her fertility process with the journalist Mara Schiavocampo on her podcast “The Trend Reporter.”
During their conversation, the “Paris in Love” star credited the KKW Beauty founder for helping her through the IVF process by recommending her fertility specialist, Dr. Andy Huang. “I didn’t even know anything about it,” the New Yorker confessed, “I’m happy that she told me that advice and introduced me to her doctor.”
The TV personality also revealed that she and Reum underwent the egg extraction procedure a few times in hopes of getting twins. In the socialite’s words,
“We have been doing IVF, so I can pick twins if I like. I’ve already undergone the egg extraction procedure. It was tough, but I knew it would be worth it. I did it a couple of times.”
A Timeline Of The Reality TV Queens’ On-And-Off Friendship
Hilton and Kardashian have been through a rollercoaster of emotions from best friends to adversaries and friends again. Their relationship dates back to preschool, where the young stars met while growing up in sunny Los Angeles. Their friendship was first documented on the reality TV series “The Simple Life,” which began airing in 2003.
At the time, the show’s celebrities Hilton and Nicole Richie patronized the SKIMS founder’s closet organizing business. However, after Kardashian found fame on “KUWTK,” her BFF status with the hotel heiress sizzled out.
Things got worse in 2008 when the “Confessions of an Heiress” author dissed the 42-year-old’s famous derrière by comparing it to “cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.” Although Hilton apologized, her words presumably ended their weakened friendship.
After years of barely speaking to each other, the former BFFs rekindled their love in 2016 at Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve party. Following the event, the pair have remained on amicable terms.
