Paris Hilton and Carter Reum have finally shown the world their newborn son.
The couple posted their son’s first Instagram photo on Thursday. Photographer Dennis Gocer captured the professional snapshot of Hilton tenderly cradling their infant while Reum watched. She captioned the photo, “Our whole world.”
This past Wednesday, Hilton revealed the unique name of their baby, Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum, on an episode of her podcast This Is Paris. She explained that the name was partially inspired by the city in Arizona, and she intended to continue the trend with any further children, having previously chosen the name London for a future girl. “I’ve been planning my children’s names for years and years,” she continued, adding that she felt driven to chose the name Phoenix since it signifies “hope, rebirth, and transformation.”
But Hilton’s late grandfather of the same name was to be honored through the name Barron. “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 honour him by having his name in my first son’s name,” she said on the podcast.
