Hotel heiress Paris Hilton admitted in a recent interview that she and husband Carter Reum have frozen 20 embryos — all of them boys — and said that she is “waiting” for the process to yield a girl.
Hilton and Reum welcomed their first child Phoenix Barron via a surrogate last month, and the “Simple Life” star told Glamour UK — for the magazine’s February cover story — that she had just made another attempt and was “waiting” to see whether any of the new embryos were female.
“Carter and I had already been talking about the future, and then the world was shut down, so I was like, ‘What do you think about us making embryos?’” Hilton explained, saying that they had begun the process while much of the world was locked down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hilton then revealed that she had already gone through the process of creating embryos seven times — and that the net result had been 20 embryos, all of them male.
“I have all boys. I have 20 boys,” she said. “I just went through the process again a month ago, so I’m waiting for the results to see if there’s any girls.”
Hilton also recently revealed that she had chosen surrogacy out of fear that going through pregnancy herself might trigger memories of past trauma she alleges happened while she was at an Utah boarding school at 16 — including involuntary gynecological exams.
She told People Magazine, “I’m just so scared. I think, again, leading back to Provo of even being in a doctor’s office, just all of that. The shots, the IVs that they put in.”
“When I was in ‘The Simple Life,’ I had to be in a room when a woman was giving birth, and that traumatized me as well. But I want a family so bad, it’s just the physical part of doing it. I’m just so scared,” she continued. “Childbirth and death are the two things that scare me more than anything in the world.”
Hilton was steered toward surrogacy by Kim Kardashian, her longtime friend.
