Paris Hilton and her husband Carter Reum shared their first family photos with their infant son, Phoenix, who was born via surrogate last month, on Wednesday.
The couple, who wed in November 2021 after more than two years of dating, looked every inch the doting parents as they unveiled their newborn’s face to the world for the first time.
In one image, Reum can be seen with his lips pressed against his wife’s forehead as she tenderly held Phoenix in her arms with her eyes peacefully closed.
Another showed the 42-year-old heiress giving her son a sweet kiss while rocking a white robe with lace sleeves, which matched her bundle of joy’s beanie and onesie.

The images come after Hilton revealed that she already has ‘seven’ more embryos in the hope of having more children, less than a month after Phoenix’s birth.
While gracing the cover of Glamour UK, the Simple Life star admitted that she and Carter decided to freeze embryos in the hope of starting a family, and that their collection are ‘all boys.’
Speaking in the candid new interview, Paris added that she decided to use a surrogate as she has always been ‘scared’ of childbirth.
She also confessed that she had previously had her eggs frozen on the advice of her pal Kim Kardashian, and had been planning to have a child on her own before she and Carter met.
She said: ‘I went and did the one round of IVF, because Kim had told me about it. So I had eggs frozen.’
But when she and Carter met and tied the knot, they decided to start a family, and during the Covid lockdown they had embryos frozen, and they still have enough to have numerous children in the future.
The heiress said: ‘Carter and I had already been talking about the future and then the world was shut down, so I was like, ”What do you think about us making embryos?”
‘And he said, ”Yeah, let’s do it.” And we’ve done it seven times… I have all boys. I have 20 boys.’
Paris added that she always planned to have her baby with the help of a surrogate after developing a fear of doctors during her younger years at boarding school.
She explained: ‘I’m just so scared, I think, again, leading back to Provo of even being in a doctor’s office, just all of that.
‘The shots, the IVs that they put in [she claims they used to regularly take samples of her blood].
‘When I was in The Simple Life, I had to be in a room when a woman was giving birth and that traumatized me as well.
‘But I want a family so bad, it’s just the physical part of doing it. I’m just so scared… childbirth and death are the two things that scare me more than anything in the world.’
Blessed: In February, the reality star shocked fans when she revealed that she had welcomed her child via surrogate; seen earlier this month
Paris shared the surprise news of her son’s birth last month, and her interview comes just a day after revealing his mythical name for the first time.
In February, the reality star shocked fans when she revealed that she had welcomed her child via surrogate.
The heiress kept news of his arrival not only a secret to the public but her own family. She waited a week after Phoenix was born to share his arrival with loved ones.
Paris previously spoke about her decision to keep her immediate family in the dark about her child until she was on the verge of announcing his birth.
‘My entire life has been so public,’ she told Harper’s Bazaar. ‘I’ve never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves.’
‘I want to protect him and to be with him every second. You have this mother instinct that kicks in, which I’ve never had before,’ she said of her son.
