Paris Hilton appears to have revealed the birth of her first child in a surprise announcement on Instagram.
The US socialite posted a close-up picture of a baby gripping a thumb to her Instagram on Tuesday, but did not share any other details.
“You are already loved beyond words,” the 41-year-old wrote in a brief caption, adding a blue heart emoji at the end, which has caused people to speculate that she has welcomed a baby boy.
Hilton, granddaughter of Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton, has been married to venture capitalist Carter Reum since 2021.
The announcement shocked many fans, as the businesswoman had not previously shared that she was expecting.
She also starred in a Miley Cyrus New Year’s Eve special on NBC at the end of last year, and did not appear to be pregnant.
US media outlet People reported that the couple had welcomed a son via surrogate.
Celebrities friends including Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Miranda Kerr congratulated the couple in the comments of the post.
“So happy for you guys!” Kardashian wrote, with Teigen adding: “A BABY!!!!! Congratulations so happy for you both!!”
