Paris Hilton and husband Carter Reum have expanded their family. On Tuesday, the 41-year-old heiress and DJ announced on Instagram that she and Reum, 41, welcomed their first child, a baby boy. Alongside a photo of her holding her baby’s hand, Hilton wrote, “You are already loved beyond words .”
While reps for Hilton did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment, the new mom confirmed to People that she and Reum recently welcomed their son via surrogate. “It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other,” she told the publication exclusively. “We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”
Hilton and Reum got engaged in February 2021 after a little more than one year of dating, with Reum proposing on Hilton’s 40th birthday. The couple got married in a three-day ceremony in November 2021.
Hilton has been open about her desire to start a family before, telling E! News back in January 2022 that becoming a mom was one of her “top priorities,” according to People. “I would want twins first,” she said, calling out that she specifically wants two or three children. “I don’t know it’s hard to say. I always wish I had an older brother because I feel like if I did then he would protect me and things like that in school.”
