While fame and notoriety can be a lot of fun – think endless streams of money, flashy red carpet events, mingling with society’s elite – living in the public eye comes with its share of scrutiny and judgment.
This is something Paris Hilton has experienced firsthand throughout her life in the spotlight.
Recently, the reality TV star turned businesswoman found herself defending her 9-month-old son, Phoenix Barron, when negative comments surfaced on her social media regarding his head size.
At the time, Paris, who is known for her unwavering confidence, didn’t hesitate to assert herself and protect her firstborn child.
Cruel trolls target Paris Hilton’s son
Paris and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed their son Phoenix with the assistance of a surrogate earlier this year, marking their first child together (Carter has a daughter named Evie from a previous relationship). As new parents, they have been navigating the joys and challenges of parenthood with love and devotion.
The young family took a trip to New York several months ago, with Paris posting a photo of herself holding her son.
In the comments section, people had some pretty cruel things to say about the size of Phoenix’s head. Hurtful comments like “Man got a lot of thoughts up there” and “I heard this baby was created in a lab. And she didn’t carry it” appeared, with others chiming in with their own negative thoughts.
In response to the unwarranted criticism, Paris perfectly voiced her frustration, saying: “There are some sick people in this world. My angel is perfectly healthy. And yes, of course he has been to a doctor, he just has a large brain.”
She also added: “[My parents] are just so obsessed with him. I’m always calling my mom and my sister [Nicky Hilton] for advice, and I’m really lucky that I’m so close with my family, so I have such a big support group.”
Paris Hilton ignores cruel trolls
Even after the nasty comments she received from trolls, Paris has shown that she’s unfazed by what they have to say.
In fact, she took to Instagram recently to post photos and a heartwarming video featuring Phoenix dressed as the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. “I think I might have an addiction to baby costumes. I can’t help it!” she captioned her post.
Behind the camera in the video, Paris could be heard saying: “Do you like that? Yeah? That’s you.”
Many people took to the comments section to write sweet messages about Phoenix the star, with one person saying: “His sweet face is so precious and looks just like his momma!! What a CUTIE!!!” However, his costume received the most compliments: “That looks like the most cozy Cookie Monster ever!”
Some people also praised Paris: “I always knew Paris would make a great mother and wife someday.” Another person added: “You inspire me! And your child is an angel. So beautiful.”
