Fans were shocked on Tuesday when Paris Hilton announced that she and her husband Carter Reum had given birth to a boy through surrogacy. In a recent interview, Paris acknowledged the baby was conceived through a surrogate.

The reality TV star and socialite also shared the good news about their newborn on Instagram. The first picture of Paris with her kid showed the new mother grasping the child’s hand. “You are already loved beyond words,” Paris stated in her caption.

In the comments section of Paris’ post, celebrities including model Chrissy Teigen and reality TV star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian thanked the newlyweds.

Chrissy remarked: “A BABY!!!!! Many congratulations to you both!” Congratulations, sis! Wrote singer Demi Lovato. Kim, who has known Paris for a long time, left a comment on her Instagram baby announcement saying, “So thrilled for you guys!!!” The model Heidi Klum said, “I am incredibly delighted for you. I’m sending love in abundance.”

Following a little more than a year of dating, Paris Hilton and Carter Reum got engaged in February 2021. The author and entrepreneur from the US proposed to her on Paris’ 40th birthday.

In November 2021, the pair got hitched over a lavish three-day wedding. The couple’s recent surrogate birth of their kid was confirmed by Paris to People on Tuesday.

Being a mother has always been a dream of mine, so I’m overjoyed that Carter and I connected. Our hearts are overflowing with love for our newborn son, and we are so thrilled to begin a family together.

Being a mother was one of Paris’s “top objectives” when she told E! News in January 2022 that she wanted to raise a family. In the interview, she stated, “I would want twins first, and I would want two or three kids.”

“It’s difficult to say, I don’t know. I’ve always wished I had an older brother because I think he would watch out for me and do other things for me at school.”
