MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: Paris Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, recently welcomed their first child, a son, via surrogacy. Posting a photo on Instagram where Hilton held her newborn’s hand, she wrote, “You are already loved beyond words.”
Hilton also confirmed the news to PEOPLE, saying, “It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other. We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.” During an interview with PEOPLE in December 2022, the 41-year-old 'Simple Life' star shared how she and Reum began the IVF process during the Covid-19 pandemic. "We started going and doing it like a few months in because the world was shut down. We knew we wanted to start a family, and I was like, 'This is perfect timing. Usually I'm on a plane 250 days out of the year, and let's just get all of the eggs stocked and ready,' and we have tons of them just waiting," she reportedly said.
Paris Hilton and Carter Reum's fairytale wedding
Hilton wed venture capitalist Reum in Beverly Hills, at her late grandfather Barron's Bel-Air estate on November 11, 2021.

It was a true fairytale wedding.” Reum proposed to Hilton on a private island in February 2021.
The couple knew each other since their twenties but reconnected in 2019 via Reum's sister, Halle Hammond. Hiton told PEOPLE, "I've known him for 15 years. Then [Hammond] invited us to Thanksgiving and we just had this incredible chemistry. We had our first date and haven't spent a night apart since. It's pretty amazing."
She added, "After my last breakup, I thought I was going to be alone forever. I was like, I give up. I'll just focus on myself. I don't need anyone. So to have actually fallen in love, I just feel so grateful."

Leave them alone. Walk away. It's not like you're giving up, and it's not like you shouldn't try. It's just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would," stated Cosmpolitan.

Following their breakup, Waits told PEOPLE, "I don’t want to speak for Paris, but this breakup is something I knew for a number of months needed to happen—and we finally saw eye to eye. I need to get back to focusing on my career. In my next relationship, I expect honesty, strong values, true communication, commitment, mutual trust, and respect, something I didn’t necessarily have recently. At the end of the day, I want my partner and I to have the same ethics.”
'The Hills' star Reinhardt dated Hilton for a year before April 2010, as per Cosmopolitan. Speaking about her relationship with him, Hilton said, as quoted by US Weekly, "I am, like, so past that—I don’t even care! I don’t even remember that time in my life. I am over it!

Hilton and Latsis began dating in 2004, got engaged, and finally called it off in the fall of 2005. Speaking about their split, Latsis told PEOPLE, “Right now is a very tough time for me.

To which, Hilton responded by saying, "I don’t believe I was a negative influence on Nick. We dated for a very short period of time almost 10 years ago and when we met, he was already a successful pop star, I’m pretty sure that was the only thing influencing him at the time. I’m glad he got help for his problems and wish him all the best.”
