Paris Hilton said in a new interview with Romper that she was afraid to give birth to children herself due to panic attacks, and therefore used the services of a surrogate mother. This year, she and her husband Carter Reum became parents twice: their son Phoenix was born at the beginning of the year, and their daughter London was recently born.
According to her, teenage psychological trauma is to blame because of what "she went through" at the Provo Canyon School in Utah for troubled youth, where she spent a year. Paris previously said that she faced physical, emotional and sexual violence there. She also noted forced gynecological examinations.
“If I find myself in a doctor's office, they give me an injection, whatever, I will literally have a panic attack and I won't be able to breathe,” she said. According to Paris, during pregnancy this can pose a serious danger, including for the child. “I just knew it would be harmful to me and the child growing inside of a person who experiences so much anxiety.”
In an earlier interview, Paris also admitted that her two greatest fears throughout her life were death and childbirth.
After the birth of her children, 41-year-old Paris Hilton was criticized for her decision to use the services of a surrogate mother. She was accused of buying children for herself as dolls, not wanting to go through the difficulties of pregnancy and spoil her figure. Paris recently responded to criticism and stated that she did not give birth herself because she is a public person.
