Paris Hilton has been dating Carter Reum since December 2019. At the time, she was 38 years old and had already made an important decision about having children. She had her eggs frozen.
Paris Hilton admits to having created a backup by having her eggs frozen in her 30s. In her podcast "This is Paris" she speaks openly about her newborn son and admits that she was "not ready for children" before. The 42-year-old loves her new phase of life as a married woman and mother of a son. Her life has often taken place in public and she describes it as a kind of "roller coaster" life, which she wants to refer to in her memoirs, which will be published in mid-March.
Paris Hilton's son Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum was born in January with the help of a surrogate mother. The Hilton-Reum couple kept the entire pregnancy secret from the press and even from their own relatives, they wanted to have this moment "all to themselves". Paris Hilton wants more children soon. She collected potential baby names years before Phoenix was born, including for girls.
In her podcast episode at the end of February, Paris Hilton admits that she wanted a daughter from an early age. Finding a name for a boy was also much more difficult for Paris Hilton, she already has a name for a little girl in mind.
In a 2021 video published by the "Daily Mail", Paris Hilton already said that she had her eggs frozen and that it was a "tough process". After the birth of her son, the 42-year-old again refers to this statement. In an interview with Glamor magazine, she revealed that on the advice of her friend Kim Kardashian, she had her eggs frozen in her late 30s because she was planning to have a child and, if in doubt, raise them alone.
"I did an IVF round because Kim told me about it. So I had frozen eggs," she says. But when she dated Carter Reum in late 2019, she realized it would be safer to freeze more eggs for future children. A total of 20 egg cells were removed from Paris Hilton and frozen. But these 20 egg cells cost the entrepreneur seven cycles of the required hormone treatment.
So far, however, only male embryos are among the fertilized frozen egg cells. The man's sperm determines the sex of the embryo during fertilization. Despite having 20 male embryos, Paris Hilton wishes to have a daughter. So she recently underwent the social freezing process again.
