Why Paris Hilton made her surrogate watch ‘The Simple Life’
Son of Paris Hilton was living his best “simple life” even before he was born.
The first child of the 42-year-old socialite business woman was a son Phoenix Baron Hilton Ream, with husband Carter Ream in January via surrogate. And the hotel heiress revealed she was hearing her mother’s voice playing “The Simple Life.”
Hilton, who kept the birth of her child a secret for a week after the birth of her child, said in an interview. Rolling Stone Tuesday, that her surrogate would watch episodes of her 2003 reality show so she could hear her mother’s voice.
When Hilton was told her surrogate would give birth a full week and a half early, she disguised herself as a brunette wig and headed to the hospital to watch her baby’s birth, an emotional experience and one she wanted to keep in the middle. She and her husband, she told Rolling Stone.
“It was just like, ‘Oh my God. I’m a mom,” Hilton told the magazine about the life-changing milestone, and why she wanted to celebrate it personally.
“My life just became public, my whole life, just, attacked; I felt for my child, I just wanted him to come into the world and stay here,” she said.
Hilton kept the news of her baby a secret from her mother, Kathy Hilton. She told Rolling Stone that she broke the news to the bride with a blue Chanel bag, thinking it would complete the huge secret she was keeping.
“I was like, if I channel her first, maybe she won’t be so upset that I didn’t tell her about it,” he said.
“I was holding the baby on my shoulder with a blanket, and then I sat down. He’s like, ‘What is this?’ And I was like, ‘A kid … meet your grandson,'” she told Glossy.
Hilton released her new memoir “Paris: The Memory” (Day Street Books) on Tuesday, detailing the dark side of her fame, living with undiagnosed ADHD, and the shocking abuse she endured at a Utah boarding school. And she has been vocal about her fears of childbirth in the past. When he was on “The Simple Life”, he recalled in an interview Glamor UKWitnessing the birth of the child and that it “shocked her.”
“When I was on ‘The Simple Life,’ I got to be in a room when a woman was giving birth and it traumatized me,” she told Glamor UK in a story published last month.
“I want a family so bad,” she told Glamor UK. “It’s just the physical part of doing it. I’m so scared… Childbirth and death are the two things that scare me more than anything in the world.
