Paris Hilton recently embraced motherhood. The 42-year-old socialite and her husband Carter Reum became parents for the first time, when they welcomed their son via surrogacy in January 2023. Paris surprised everyone when she shared the wonderful news on her Instagram space, considering that no one knew they were awaiting the arrival of their first child.

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.
