Planning the ‘perfect’ baby
The famous face has never been one to shy away from IVF chat and in January 2021 – before Carter had even proposed – she shared her baby dreams with media outlets.
Revealing they had already started the in vitro fertilization process together, she said: ‘We have been doing IVF, so I can pick twins if I like,’ during a chat on the Trend Reporter With Mara podcast.
Paris continued spilling details of her experience: ‘I’ve already undergone the egg extraction procedure. It was tough, but I knew it would be worth it. I did it a couple of times.’

The happy newlyweds had already been ‘planning our babies names and all of that,’ according to the blushing bride.
In the same talk, she gushed over her partner and explained her excitement for the next steps in their life together: ‘Just doing it together and having a partner that is just so supportive and always makes me feel just like a princess all the time…that it wasn’t that bad.’
Kathy Hilton weighs in
Paris’s mother Kathy divulged the struggles her daughter faced as she tried to conceive naturally to the denial of her famous offspring.
Speaking to E! News, the Real Housewives star expressed her heartbreak at her child’s inability to have a baby in November last year.
The 63-year-old told the outlet: ‘It breaks my heart because I know she is trying and trying and I always say, “Just relax.”
‘So many people, they struggle and it doesn’t just happen like that.’

However, Paris wasn’t too pleased with her mother’s candid chat and quipped to TMZ that same month: ‘I don’t know where she got that – it’s never been a struggle at all.’
The star then admitted the couple had been ‘stocking up’ and had ‘tons of embryos that have all just been waiting’ for IVF treatment.
