Nicky Hilton Rothschild says sister Paris Hilton was ‘born to’ be a mother
Nicky Hilton Rothschild says sister Paris Hilton was ‘born to’ be a mother and is on ‘cloud nine’ after arrival of firstborn son Phoenix Barron
Nicky Hilton Rothschild shed some light on her big sister Paris Hilton’s baby joy after the arrival of her firstborn son Phoenix.
Paris and her dashing businessman husband Carter Reum welcomed their little bundle of joy via surrogate near the end of January.
‘She is on cloud nine,’ said Nicky, 39, who has two daughters called Lily-Grace, six, and Teddy, five, and an infant son with her own husband James Rothschild.
‘In a new interview with People, Nicky hailed Paris as ‘such an incredible mother. She was born to do this, and I’m just so happy for her.’
However she also revealed that, since Paris lives in Los Angeles and Nicky in New York, baby Phoenix has yet to meet his Rothschild cousins.

‘I’m just so excited for all the cousins and babies to be together. They haven’t all met yet. When my kids have spring break in a few weeks, they’re going to come here and meet their new cousin,’ Nicky explained.
Recently she divulged that she and Carter hid the baby’s birth from even their immediate families until right before she broke the news on social media.
‘My entire life has been so public,’ she told Harper’s Bazaar. ‘I’ve never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves.’
She said of her son: ‘I want to protect him and to be with him every second. You have this mother instinct that kicks in, which I’ve never had before.’
While the surrogate was in labor, Paris was so determined to protect her privacy that she even went to the trouble of disguising herself with a brunette wig and checking into the hospital under an alias.
Her decision was especially notable considering how close she is to her family, particularly Nicky and their mother Kathy Hilton.
However tension flared up between mother and daughter in November when Kathy let slip to E! News that IVF had been a ‘struggle’ for Paris.
‘I don’t know where she got that,’ Paris shot back in a TMZ interview the following day. ‘It’s never been a struggle at all.’
When Paris announced the arrival of her firstborn child, all she said was ‘You are already loved beyond words,’ on a photo of the baby’s hand holding Paris’s finger.

On a recent episode of her podcast This Is Paris, she spilled that Phoenix was ‘like over a week old’ before she told Kathy and Nicky about his birth.
‘When I introduced my mom to our baby boy, it was amazing to see the look on her face, she was so surprised,’ said Paris. ‘Just the look on her face, it was just priceless.’
Paris married Carter in late 2021 over the course of an eye-watering three-day extravaganza that included a star-studded carnival on the Santa Monica Pier.
Meanwhile Nicky married James, a grandson of the third Baron Rothschild, in 2015 in a ceremony in the Orangery at Kensington Palace with Paris as maid of honor.
