In the second season of “Paris In Love,” Paris Hilton (42) talks about the “difficult decision” to have her second child carried by a surrogate mother.
Accordingly, Hilton would have liked to live through the pregnancy experience herself: "I would have loved to see the baby grow in my stomach, feel the kicks and experience all those exciting moments," quotes "People" from the first episode. The reason for the surrogacy was that Hilton's life was "just so public."

Paris' son, Phoenix Barron Hilton, was born via a surrogate mother in January 2023. In an interview with British "Glamour" in March, Paris explained why she chose this method of having children. Back then, her life as a public figure wasn't the reason.
Rather, she is afraid of doctors' offices and the physical process of childbirth: an episode of her former reality show "The Simple Life," in which she was in the room when a woman had a child, left her permanently traumatized. "But I really wanted a family, it's just the physical part... I'm just so scared. Birth and death are the two things that scare me more than anything else in the world," Paris said.
