A source close to Paris Hilton just revealed that she and her fiancé, Carter Reum, are expecting their first child.
According to sources, the star is expecting a child after paparazzi images of Hilton and Reum leaving a restaurant together emerged online, causing many to believe she was pregnant.
Hilton was quick to clear the air and publicly state that she was not pregnant and that the photographs may have been deceiving owing to her clothing, not long after the ‘news’ went viral on the internet.
Before addressing the rumors, the 40-year-old said, “Yes, I am pregnant with triplets. I am not pregnant—yet,” she stated, adding that she will wait until she removes her wedding gown.
“I also awoke to approximately 3,000 texts, and all five of my iPhones are exploding with people wishing me congratulations and expressing their joy for me, and yes, I’ve heard from folks I haven’t spoken to in years. Thank you for all of your messages.”
Hilton clarified the situation on her This Is Paris podcast, speculating that the source may have misunderstood her because of the push-up bra she was wearing in the paparazzi images.
“It was probably the Paris Hilton push-up bra from my new lingerie brand, I’m guessing. I wore it to dinner with Carter, my fiancé ” she clarified.
“I guess some folks took some photographs and shared them, and now they have a high solid source claiming Paris Hilton is pregnant.”
Following the report, Avenue magazine editor Ben Widdicombe tweeted that Hilton’s sister, Nicky, had also rejected the story during a picture session, simply saying, “It’s not true.”
She did make sure to say on the same episode of This Is Paris that she “can’t wait to have children in 2022.” Hilton has previously stated on the podcast Trend Reporter that she is undergoing IVF therapy.
“I think it’s something most women should do just to have,” Hilton remarked. “Then you can choose whether you want boys or girls. The only way to have it 100 percent is to do it that way.”
After dating for over a year, Hilton and Reum, a venture capitalist, announced their engagement in February on a private island.
While their relationship doesn’t appear to be growing, Hilton’s resume does.
Her rumored pregnancy was announced on the same day as the trailer for her next cooking show, Cooking With Paris, which will premiere on Netflix on August 4.
“The only thing in the oven at the moment is my sliving lasagne,” she wrote, in if the internet needed any more proof that Hilton isn’t pregnant.
