Last month, Paris shared an update on her and Carter’s journey to parenthood and revealed she has eggs ‘stocked and ready’ for IVF transfer next year.
The reality star initially began the IVF process during the pandemic when lockdowns were in place.
Paris recently denied her mother’s claims that she and Carter were ‘struggling’ with IVF and explained at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Gala: ‘We started going and doing it like a few months in because the world was shut down.

‘We knew we wanted to start a family, and I was like, “This is perfect timing. Usually, I’m on a plane 250 days out of the year, and let’s just get all of the eggs stocked and ready,” and we have tons of them just waiting.
‘We really wanted to enjoy our first year of marriage together as a couple, you know, before bringing kids into the mix. So now that we just had our year anniversary, I can’t wait for 2023.’
