Kim Richards Reveals Why She Hasn’t Met Paris Hilton’s Daughter Yet

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kim Richards admitted that she has yet to meet her niece, Paris Hilton’s new daughter. Paris and her husband Carter Reum welcomed baby London on November 11 via surrogate.

At her sister Kathy Hilton’s Christmas party on November 29, Kim told Extra TV correspondent and former RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp that she hasn’t seen the baby yet. Sadly, the Escape from Witch Mountain actress hasn’t been feeling well and knows she can’t have cuddles with little London until she’s well.

“I haven’t [met the baby] because it has been just a couple weeks,” she shared. “I was not feeling well. My grandkids [Hucksley and Hunter] were under the weather.” 

Grandma Kathy delayed meeting the baby, too

Though she knew the baby girl was imminent, Grandma Kathy was on a press tour in New York when London arrived. The RHOBH alum had also planned to spend Thanksgiving with younger daughter Nicky Hilton Rothschild and her family in NYC.

Paris and Carter welcomed their baby boy, 10-month-old Phoenix, earlier this year, also via surrogate. She and Carter kept his impending birth a secret from everyone, including Kathy, to ensure their privacy. Even though she believes she could have kept the news to herself, the mom-of-four respects her daughter’s decision.

“I’m just grateful and I’m thrilled and I’m just happy,” Kathy shared.

Paris in Love … with her two babies

For her part, Paris has “never been happier” than she is as a mom of two babies under a year old. Unlike most moms, I’m sure she has a lot of help. I am happy for her, though, since I know she’s wanted to be a mom for a long time.

“These two babies just bring so much joy to my life,” she gushed. “My heart feels so full … I just feel so lucky to have found my fairy-tale ending with my prince and now my little angel babies.”

Sharing why she kept the impending arrival of both her children from her fans, Paris explained, “I’ve been in this industry for over two decades now. My life has been so public. I’ve given my life away for so long … I just felt that I really wanted something for myself.”

While only Paris and Carter knew about Phoenix before he was born, they included Kathy and Nicky in the secret when they knew their baby girl was coming. “It was a surprise to everyone else, the most amazing Thanksgiving,” said the mom of two.

Paris in Love Season 2 is currently airing on Peacock.
