If you were surprised to learn that Paris Hilton and Carter Reum welcomed a baby boy into the world earlier this year, you weren’t the only one. Even her family didn’t know about the surrogate pregnancy. The socialite and reality TV star is currently gracing the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. In the surprisingly candid interview, she gave fans a peak into her new life as a wife and a mother. In her chat with the publication, she shared the great lengths that she and Carter went to keep the news of their baby a secret.
Of course, it’s not totally unheard of for a celebrity to keep their surrogacy journey private. However, it’s shocking to learn that even Paris and Carter’s families were kept out of the loop.
“My entire life has been so public,” Paris explained in the cover story, as reported by Page Six. “I’ve never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves.”
The couple, who tied the knot in November 2021, went to great lengths to keep the news of the pregnancy from leaking. When Paris went to the hospital, she wore a brunette wig as a disguise. She even lied to her house staff, telling them that she was having her house painted to keep them away. It all worked because the world was super surprised when she announced the birth of her son.
The announcement came via Instagram with an adorable picture of her holding her little one’s hand. Just before the Instagram post went live, Paris and Carter filled their families in on the exciting news. Can you imagine Kathy Hilton’s reaction to finding out about her surprise new grandson? She must have been thrilled. Or, was she still too busy recovering from the last season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
Paris also teased that she and Carter probably aren’t done growing their family. She admitted wanting more children and recently completed her seventh egg retrieval. She told the outlet, “I’m more interested in babies than billions.”
Although Paris is putting babies over billions, she isn’t interested in immediately throwing her baby into the spotlight. So far, we’ve only seen a glimpse of the baby’s hand, and the couple hasn’t revealed his name. Paris did share that she likes to sing her baby her iconic pop song, “Stars Are Blind,” which is kind of the cutest thing ever.
While Paris and Carter keep their growing family private for now, it likely won’t stay that way for too long. Peacock just greenlit Season 2 of Paris in Love. So, If the first season followed her wedding to Carter, then the second season will undoubtedly touch on the love she’s found in her new motherhood journey.
