Paris Hilton has revealed that she kept her child’s birth a secret from her immediate family until he was born and she had to gift her mother Kathy Hilton a blue Chanel purse while announcing the arrival of her newborn son Phoenix Barron.

Late in January Paris, 40, announced that she and her businessman husband Carter Reum had welcomed a baby boy via surrogate.

They kept both their immediate families in the dark until Paris was on the verge of breaking the news on Instagram. 

Now in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Paris revealed that she gave Kathy a designer handbag and then handed her Phoenix for the first time.

Paris described the scene: ”I was holding the baby on my shoulder with a blanket over him, and then I just sat down.”

Paris said her mother was “like: ‘What is that?’ And I was like: ‘A baby…meet your grandson.’ She’s like: ‘Is this yours?’ And she starts crying. She’s like: ‘Let me hold him. He’s the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen in my life. Oh, he’s so beautiful.’ She was just in tears.”

Recently she explained why she and Carter hid the baby’s birth from even their immediate families until right before she made the Instagram announcement. 

“My entire life has been so public,” she told Harper’s Bazaar, “I’ve never had anything for myself. We decided that we wanted to have this whole experience to ourselves.”

She said of her son: “I want to protect him and to be with him every second. You have this mother instinct that kicks in, which I’ve never had before.”

On a recent episode of her podcast This Is Paris, she disclosed that Phoenix was “like over a week old” before she told her mother Kathy and her sister Nicky about his birth. 

“When I introduced my mom to our baby boy, it was amazing to see the look on her face, she was so surprised,” said Paris. “Just the look on her face, it was just priceless
