Paris Hilton finally shared what we’ve all been waiting for — her newborn baby’s name! She revealed her and her husband Carter Reum‘s son’s super special name to the world on her This Is Paris podcast on Wednesday:
“My beautiful baby boy’s name is Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum. And Carter and I are so proud to welcome him into the world.”
Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum!
The 41-year-old socialite said she wants to hold true to the plans of naming her future daughter London, so she wanted to name her son after another city. She said she knew for a long time exactly what his name was going to be:
“I’ve been planning my children’s names for years and years.”
The hotel heiress noted the name Phoenix isn’t just special because of the city, but because it means “hope, rebirth, and transformation.”
The baby boy’s middle name is even more personal, though. The name Barron comes from Paris’ late grandfather, Barron Hilton:
“He was always my mentor, and I looked up to my grandfather so much, and we were so close, and I miss him every day, so I really wanted to honor him by having his name in my first son’s name.”
She also revealed the name on Instagram, sharing her book Paris: The Memoir is coming shortly after the birth of her baby:
Pre-order my book Paris: The Memoir and tune into my latest @thisisparispodcast episode at the link in my bio to learn more about why this name means so much to me.”
