Paris Hilton is a mom!
The “Simple Life” alum revealed Tuesday that she and husband Carter Reum secretly welcomed their first child together — a son — via surrogate.
Posting a sweet photo on Instagram in which she held her newborn’s hand, she wrote, “You are already loved beyond words 💙.”
Hilton, 41, also confirmed the news to People, saying, “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.”
The heiress, however, did not reveal when they welcomed their bundle of joy or what his name is.
The reality star married Reum, also 41, in November 2021 and has been vocal about their plans to use IVF to start a family.
“[We’ve] been talking about kids since the beginning — since the first couple, like, months of dating,” the DJ said on “The Bellas Podcast” in April 2022.
When the businesswoman’s mom, Kathy Hilton, told “E! News” viewers seven months later that getting pregnant had been a “struggle” for her eldest daughter, Paris subsequently set the record straight to TMZ.
“I don’t know where she got that,” she told the outlet in November, claiming to “have tons of embryos … stocked up” and “waiting.”
Paris later took to Instagram Stories, writing, “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.”
The “Paris in Love” star shot down Kathy’s claims for the third time the following month, explaining to E! that she and Reum were “getting the eggs all ready.”
Nicky Hilton was the first of Paris’ siblings to become a parent. She shares Lily-Grace, 6, Teddy, 5, and a 6-month-old son with her husband, James Rothschild.
Their brother Barron Hilton II, meanwhile, shares Milou, 2, and Caspian, 4 months, with his wife, Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff.
As for Reum, the venture capitalist fathered a daughter named Evie with “Secrets of Aspen” star Laura Bellizzi in 2011.
When Page Six broke the news in November 2021, Reum’s rep told us that he “supports” the preteen despite not having “a traditional father-daughter relationship” with her.
