Paris Hilton Reveals Name Of First Child
Paris Hilton is introducing the world to her baby boy.
On her iHeartRadio podcast This Is Paris, the new mom revealed the name she’s given to her baby boy — Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum.
Hilton, 42, explained that she thought of the name 10 years ago, sharing the story while reading an excerpt from her upcoming memoir, Paris.
“If all goes well, by the time you read this, Carter and I will have a baby boy. We plan to name him Phoenix, a name that I decided on years ago when I was searching cities, countries and states on a map looking for something to go with Paris and London,” she read.
“Phoenix has a few good pop culture reference points, but more importantly it’s the bird that flames out and then rises from the ashes to fly again,” she continued. “I want my son to grow up knowing that disaster and triumph go around and come around throughout our lives. And that this should give us great hope for the future.”
Later, she explained that the little one’s middle name is a tribute to her late grandfather, Barron Hilton.
“He was always my mentor. I looked up to my grandfather so much, and we were so close, and I miss him every day,” she explained. “So, I really wanted to honor him by having his name in my first son’s name. So there you go. My beautiful baby boy’s name is Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum.”
Hilton began the podcast by raving over her new arrival and how special this time has been for her and her husband, who is already a dad to a daughter whom he shares with former reality star Laura Bellizzi.
