Paris Hilton made a surprise pregnancy announcement in January, and it turns out that not even her family was aware of it.
The socialite has finally spoken up about her decision to hold back the information until the birth of her child through a surrogate, which she had with her husband Carter Reum. “My entire life has been so public, I’ve never had anything for myself,” Hilton told Harper’s Bazaar.
Hilton said that extreme attempts were taken to conceal the delivery, including the use of a wig during labor, checking in using a false identity, and removing personnel for many days following the birth under the pretense of repainting. The company owner claimed that soon before posting the news on Instagram, she told her close family.
“I want to protect him and to be with him every second,” she said. “You have this mother instinct that kicks in, which I’ve never had before. I feel so complete now.”
The new mother has made the decision to keep her baby’s name a secret for the time being. We made the decision that we wanted the entire event to ourselves,” she said.
With the message “You are already loved beyond words,” Hilton, 41, shared a snapshot of her white-nail-polished hands cradling a baby boy’s hand to share the news.
Hilton revealed that she and Reum had had a boy in a statement to PEOPLE. It has always been my goal to have children, so I’m overjoyed that Carter and I connected. “Our hearts are bursting with love for our baby boy, and we are so eager to begin our family together.”
Several famous people, including Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Elle Fanning, Miranda Kerr (Net Worth), Chrissy Teigen, and Demi Lovato (Dating) left hundreds of comments on the post. Many appeared to be unaware that the family was about to add a new member.
“So happy for you guys!!!” Kardashian wrote.
“I am Sooooooo happy for you,” added Klum.
“Sending lots and lots of love.”
“A BABY!!!!! Congratulations so happy for you both!!” added Teigen.
Hilton and Reum were engaged in February 2021, and their three-day wedding took place in November of the same year.
Hilton revealed to PEOPLE last year that she and Reum, 41, had begun the IVF process at the height of the COVID pandemic because of how badly they wanted a child.
We only started attending and doing it a few months in, she remarked, “because the world was shut down.”
“We were aware of our desire to have children, and I thought, ‘Now is the ideal time. We have a ton of eggs waiting, and considering that I fly 250 days a year, let’s just stick and prepare all of the eggs. Following their engagement, Hilton gushed on Instagram about Reum.
“When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it,” she wrote.
“My love and I have been together since our first date and for my birthday, he arranged a special trip to tropical paradise.
“As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee.
“I said yes, yes to forever.
“There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with.”
After the wedding, Hilton told The Bellas Podcast that she had found her “perfect match.”
“I love being married,” she said.
“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 said that she and Reum had “been discussing having children from the start — since the first couple, like, months of dating.” The nine-year-old child of venture capitalist and author Reum is from a prior relationship.
