Paris Hilton has announced the birth of her baby girl and has simultaneously revealed her sentimental moniker.
To celebrate Thanksgiving in a special way, Paris, 42, revealed the bombshell that she and her entrepreneur husband, Carter Reum, had recently welcomed a daughter into the world.
The news comes just 11 months after the pair became parents for the first time via surrogate in January.
At the time of her first child’s birth announcement, The Simple Life star told Vogue that plans for more kids were in motion.
She also claimed that she was after a ‘little girl’.
In an excerpt from her memoir, Paris, the DJ revealed that she had named her firstborn son after her late grandfather, William Barron Hilton.
She also stated that she had landed on the name ‘Phoenix’ years ago.
Paris wrote: "We planned to name him Phoenix, a name I had decided on years ago when I was searching cities, countries, and states on a map."
Thus, Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum was born, and Paris told the aforementioned publication that he was ‘so precious and sweet’.
“When I look at my baby photos, he looks so similar to me. We both have the same lips and the same smile.”
On Friday, the mum-of-two announced that she had added another child to her brood - a daughter called London.
Paris shared a picture of a baby grow on her social media feed which was embroidered with her child’s name.
In the image, shared with her 25.5 million Instagram followers, she included a cute crocheted rabbit and a pair of heart-frame sunglasses.
However, fans of the Ellen DeGeneres Show will know that she actually revealed her daughter’s name way back in January 2022.
On the American talk show, the 42-year-old said: “The girl is going to be named London Marilyn Hilton Reum.
“Marilyn, after my grandmother. And London because it’s my favourite city and I think that Paris and London sound cute together.”
At the time, she didn’t reveal that her son’s name would be Phoenix because she was ‘scared someone was going to steal it’.
Paris opened up about her surrogacy journey in September 2021, and said that Kim Kardashian actually gave her the idea.
Speaking on the Trend Reporter with Mara podcast at the time, the ‘Stars are Blind’ singer said: “[Kim] was the one who told me about that. I didn't even know anything about it.
“I'm happy that she told me that advice and introduced me to her doctor.”
Earlier this year, Paris stated that fear of childbirth was the main reason behind her surrogacy journey.
She told Glamour Magazine: “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.
“When I was in The Simple Life, I had to be in a room when a woman was giving birth and that traumatised me as well.”
She added that she wanted a ‘family so bad’ and that childbirth and death were the two things that scared her most in the world.
