As Paris Hilton made the surprising announcement Tuesday that she had secretly welcomed a baby boy with her husband Carter Reum, via a surrogate, it turns out that Reum has long kept silent about having another child, a daughter he’s “only seen once” and who reportedly feels “rejected” by him and his socialite wife.
The Daily Mail shared the news about Reum’s “secret love child” in the wake of Hilton’s happy announcement. The Hilton heiress, 41, revealed the arrival of her first child in an Instagram post, which showed a photo of the new mom’s hand, with perfectly manicured fingernails, holding a baby’s tiny hand.

“It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other,” Hilton told People. “We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”
It doesn’t look like Hilton’s family will include Reum’s daughter, a girl around 10 years old, whom he fathered with reality star Laura Bellizzi in 2012.
Bellizzi, who now lives in California with the girl, was known for appearing on the short-lived VH-1 show “Secrets of Aspen,” Page Six reported in 2011. Perhaps Reum, 40, never felt attached to the child because, at the time Bellizzi was pregnant, there were reports that Mel Gibson could be the father because of rumors that she and the controversial actor had briefly dated, Page Six said.
“Mel Gibson is not the father of my child,” a visibly pregnant Bellizzi told TMZ in 2011. Her representatives also refused to comment on speculation that she and Gibson had dated in the summer of 2011.
It turns out that venture capitalist Reum was the father of Bellizzi’s baby, the Daily Mail said, citing a source who said he’s “only seen her once.” Reum’s representatives acknowledged the child’s existence in a statement to The Daily Mail and said their relationship wasn’t “traditional.”
“The people who this story matters to have known about it for 10 years,” the representative said. “Carter supports this child. While he does not have a traditional father-daughter relationship with her, he has provided for her since she was born, and will continue to do so.”
Sadly, a source “close to the situation” told the Daily Mail that Reum’s daughter was “triggered” by seeing his lavish three-day wedding to Hilton in 2021, with the girl feeling “left out” of her father’s life.

The source told the Daily Mail that the girl also saw articles about Reum and Hilton wanting to start a family and Hilton talking openly about her use of in vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive. “She felt tremendous rejection and felt left out,” the the source said.
