Paris Hilton hid her son’s birth from her parents Rick and Kathy Hilton
Paris recently talked to Harper’s Bazaar about becoming a mother for the first time. During the conversation, she revealed why she kept the news of her son’s birth hidden from her parents. “My entire life has been so public. I’ve never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves,” Paris said.
The hotel heiress further revealed that she even went to the hospital wearing a brunette wig and checked in under a different name, lest people recognize her. After Paris Hilton and Carter Reum were allowed to leave the hospital with the new-born baby, they went to their residence in Beverly Hills, and sent their staff away telling them the house was being painted. The new parents wanted to spend some true alone time with their child before announcing the news to the world. When they felt like the news might leak on its own, they decided to share it on Instagram.
