"Can't blow our cover now, we've done such a good job," Reum responded.

Paris Hilton and her husband Carter Reum shared one more reason to be thankful this year.

Hilton announced on Thanksgiving via Instagram a second child, a daughter. She shared a photo featuring a pink Peter Pan collared baby shirt with the name London stitched on the front, with heart sunglasses and a stuffed animal.

Hilton, 42, captioned the photo, "Thankful for my baby girl" with a face holding back tears emoji, pink heart emoji and baby emoji.

London was welcomed via surrogate, Hilton's rep confirmed to The Associated Press on Friday.

Hilton's aunt, "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards, commented with pink heart emojis on the post, and supermodel Naomi Campbell offered her congratulations.

Hilton shares a son, Phoenix, with Reum, 42, an entrepreneur and venture capitalist. The couple married in November 2021. The two began dating in December 2019.

In a TikTok post, Paris confirms the announcement, telling her niece and nephew that she has "two babies."

"You guys excited for your new cousin?" she asks.

Paris Hilton's husband Carter Reum talks keeping son Phoenix a secret

Hilton's announcement is much less secretive than the announcement of her first child.

In a teaser for Season 2 of her reality series "Paris in Love" posted on Wednesday, the couple opened up about how they first kept Phoenix a secret.

Reum said initially he wanted to share the news of their son's anticipated arrival, but his wife preferred to keep their baby news hidden.

"I don't think it ever hit me we weren't going to tell anyone, that was really Paris," Reum said in a confessional. "My initial inclination was to tell my family and get everyone excited, hers was to hold the secret. But she's had to go through life having to protect herself, so I was gonna do everything I could to be a good teammate."

Hilton also discussed a plan if their son, who was born via surrogate in January, was revealed by paparazzi at the hospital.

"If people found out there would be paparazzi all over Cedars (Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles) I'm hoping and praying that no one at the hospital tells," she said in a clip of the couple riding in a car. "If anyone recognizes me let's pretend that it's our nephew."

"Can't blow our cover now, we've done such a good job," Reum responded.

The social media mogul, reality star and DJ announced her son's arrival in January. Hilton alluded to her new bundle of joy on Instagram, posting a picture of her baby's hand grasping her thumb.

"You are already loved beyond words," Hilton wrote, adding a blue heart emoji.

Reum has another child, a daughter, whom he shares with former reality star Laura Bellizzi.

In February, she shared on her podcast "This is Paris" that she named her son Phoenix and that no one – not even her mother Kathy Hilton or sister Nicky Hilton Rothschild – knew about him until he was a week old.

"For now we've just been keeping everything really private," Hilton said on the podcast. "Not even my mom or my sister or my best friends – no one knew literally until he was over a week old, so it was really nice just to have that with Carter be our own journey together because I just feel that my life has been so public, and I've never really had anything just be mine."

Hilton added that she decided to keep her baby news under wraps even from close relatives because of the challenges of keeping a secret while living in the public eye.

"If you tell one person, then they tell someone, and then all of a sudden it's in TMZ or Page Six," she said. "So Carter and I literally made a pact together that we would not tell anyone."
