Paris Hilton gave fans a first look at her newborn son Phoenix on Thursday!
Prior to this reveal, however, the ‘Simple Life’ star announced her decision to keep her maternity journey completely private from those around her. In fact, she didn’t tell her mom, Kathy Hilton, about Phoenix until he was “over a week old”!
Paris & Carter wanted to enjoy the experience in private
The new mom opened up about it on Wednesday during an episode of her This is Paris podcast, first opening up about how she and Carter Reum are “just over the moon and so in love” with their baby boy.
“Carter and I are blessed with the arrival of our little boy. He is such a precious angel and we are just over the moon and so in love with him.”
She went on to say that the couple were strictly “keeping everything private” about their son’s arrival, and she even noted that some of her closest family and friends were kept in the dark.
“Not even my mom, my sister, my best friends — no one knew until he was about a week old.”
Regarding her and Carter’s decision, Paris pointed out that she loved privacy as she “never really had anything that was fair [hers].”
“It was really nice to have that with Carter, to be our own journey together. Because I just feel like my life has been so public and I’ve never really had anything just for me…I really felt like I wanted this trip to be just us.”
However, it wasn’t easy keeping such an exciting development a secret, despite Paris’ determination to keep the announcement under wraps and out of the media’s reach.
“Obviously it was hard to keep that to ourselves because we were so excited and we wanted to tell our families, but we were just nervous because when you tell one person, they tell someone, and all of a sudden it’s on TMZ.” or Page Six, and I’ve had enough of my life. So Carter and I literally made a pact that we wouldn’t tell anyone, and nobody knew until recently.”
The family is already heart-to-heart about Phoenix
When Kathy finally met her newborn grandson, Paris notes that the look on her face was “priceless.”
“When I introduced our little boy to my mother, it was amazing to see the look on her face. She was so surprised – just the look on her face was priceless.”
She concluded her comments by noting, “We’re just so happy and just feeling so blessed. He’s so perfect and it’s great to be a mom.”
