Paris Hilton is now a mom! The heiress and media personality announced on January 24 that she and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed their first child together. Taking to Instagram, Hilton shared a close-up photo of her newborn baby gripping her thumb. “You are already loved beyond words,” she captioned the adorable shot. Later, Hilton confirmed to People that she and Reum welcomed their son via surrogate. “It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other,” she said. “We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”
Per the outlet, Hilton and Reum kicked off their IVF journey in 2020, after the COVID-19 Pandemic put a pause on the reality star’s busy schedule. “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,” she explained of her ambitions. However, Hilton and Reum made the most out of their time together before jumping into parenthood, saying, “We really wanted to enjoy our first year of marriage together as a couple, you know, before bringing kids into the mix.” She adds, “So, now that we just had our year anniversary, I can’t wait for 2023.” Congratulations to Paris and Carter on their new bundle of joy!
