Socialite Paris Hilton has always been a media darling. The Hilton heiress has grown up in front of a camera, sometimes to her detriment as fame took its toll. But America feels like they know her; everyone knows Paris. So when the news began circulating Tuesday about Hilton, the rumor mills went wild. So is it true? Is Paris Hilton pregnant?!

Paris Hilton Pregnant?!

First, let’s look at why people are saying she’s pregnant. It all started when PageSix reported early Tuesday that Hilton was expecting. Per PageSix, “Paris Hilton is pregnant and expecting her first child with her fiancé, Carter Reum, Page Six has exclusively learned.

The pair have been open about wanting to start a family together, with Hilton, 40, revealing in January that she had been undergoing IVF treatments.

‘He’s just my dream guy. … [Carter is] 100 percent [the one],’ she said on the Trend Reporter podcast at the time. ‘We talk about [planning a wedding] all the time and planning our baby’s names and all of that.’”

At the time, PageSix reached out to Hilton and Reum’s representatives, but did not receive any more information. Since then, the internet has exploded with the news. Hilton, pregnant; the 40-year-old has turned her life around in recent years after a rocky rise to adulthood. The former Simple Life star opened up last year about abuse she suffered at the hands of a boarding school growing up, and her slow turn to maturity has endeared herself to fans. So this news that Hilton is expecting is big; Paris is having a bit of a moment. 

Paris Has Grown Up

It is perhaps all the sweeter that this news about Hilton has broken given what she revealed last year. CELEB took a look at Hilton’s revealing documentary last year. “Hilton was born on February 17th, 1981 in New York City. Grand-daughter of Hilton Hotel founder Conrad Hilton, Paris was born into wealth. The now-39-year-old became a household name after she and fellow heiress Nicole Richie began a four-year journey into the world of reality TV as Hilton and Richie shared their TV personas with the world in The Simple Life. On The Simple Life, Hilton and Richie showed the world the jet-setting lifestyle of the super-rich. The young socialite established a career as a model and actress, and successfully launched her own music career and fashion brands.

But fame also exacted it’s toll from Hilton, and she ran into trouble with the law and struggled in personal relationships as the overwhelming crush of fame and public life put pressure on the young star.”

In the documentary, Hilton also reveals that she suffered deprivation, neglect, and abuse at the hands of a boarding school she was sent to.  In an interview with PEOPLE, Hilton described her horrifying experience at school, “‘The staff would say terrible things. They were constantly making me feel bad about myself and bully me. I think it was their goal to break us down. And they were physically abusive, hitting and strangling us. They wanted to instill fear in the kids so we’d be too scared to disobey them.’”

Over the past year, it’s become clear that Hilton has shed the troubles of her youth and the abuse she endured and is forging a life for herself with fiance Reum. The once-troubled heiress is still stunningly beautiful, and now – could she be a mom soon?

Nicky Hilton Throws Doubt on Pregnancy Rumors

Not so fast, says Insider. Per Yahoo!: “Hilton, who is 40, has not confirmed the news. [PageSix] reported on Tuesday that it had ‘exclusively learned’ about Hilton’s pregnancy, but said that a representative for Hilton declined to comment.

But shortly after the news broke on social media, Ben Widdicombe, the editor-in-chief of Avenue Magazine, tweeted that Hilton’s sister Nicky said ‘it’s not true’ when asked about Page Six‘s report.”

Nicky Hilton herself has two children with husband James Rothschild. Like Nicky, Rothschild is heir to his parents’ impressive fortune, making he and Nicky a true power couple.

So what does the internet think? Is Nicky right and it’s just a rumor, or is the heiress really expecting her first child? Until Hilton confirms one way or the other, it’s anyone’s guess. But everyone’s fingers and toes are crossed that she confirms it.
