Paris Hilton Reveals Her Baby Boy’s Name: Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum
Socialite and reality TV star Paris Hilton has finally revealed her baby boy’s name on her iHeartRadio podcast, This Is Paris. The new mom announced that her son’s name is Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum. The 42-year-old celebrity shared that she came up with the name 10 years ago when looking for one that would go well with Paris and London. According to Hilton, Phoenix is a name with good pop culture reference points and is also associated with the bird that rises from the ashes to fly again. The baby’s middle name, Barron, is a tribute to Hilton’s late grandfather, mentor, and close confidant.
Hilton’s husband, Carter Reum, who is already a father to a daughter, shares the joy of having their first son. The new mom gushed about her newborn, whom she said is a “precious angel.” She also shared that they had kept the birth private, and not even her mom, sisters, or best friend knew until the baby was over a week old. Hilton revealed that this privacy was a great experience for her and Carter, and they are excited to start their journey as a family.
The celebrity mom expressed her excitement at becoming a mother in previous interviews, revealing that she always wanted to be a mom and had been planning her children’s names for years. Paris had undergone several rounds of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) before conceiving via a surrogate.
Paris also recently shared a sweet moment on social media about the name Phoenix, revealing that comedian Ellen DeGeneres had guessed the name correctly during a 2022 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Paris praised Ellen for the spot-on guess, and the two stars shared a moment on Instagram.
Paris and Carter got married in November 2021, and the arrival of their baby boy completes their beautiful journey together. With her memoir set to release in March, Paris is sure to share more intimate details of her life as a new mom.
