Businesswoman and heiress Paris Hilton has opened up about her IVF journey with her boyfriend Carter Reum. 

Paris has achieved huge success since rising to fame with reality television show, The Simple Life, back in 2003. Now it seems she is looking forward to becoming a mother in the not-too-distant future. Speaking on The Trend Reporter with Mara podcast on January 26, Paris revealed: "I'm just really excited to just move on for the next step of my life and finally just have a real life".

"Because I really do believe that having a family and having children is the meaning of life. And I haven't got to experience that, because I didn't feel like anybody deserved that love from me, and now I finally found the person who does," she explained. 

She revealed that she and her boyfriend Carter Reum have started on an IVF journey together.

"We have been doing the IVF, so I can pick twins if I like,” Paris shared, adding that it was her friend Kim Kardashian West "who told me about that. I didn't even know anything about it," she explained.

"I'm happy that she told me that advice and introduce me to her doctor. So yeah, we have them all ready to go."

As reported by eonline.com, the reality star went on to share on the podcast how she has already finished having her eggs extracted. She said: "It was tough, but I knew it would be worth it. I did it a couple of times. Just doing it together and having a partner that is just so supportive and just always makes me feel like a princess all the time... it wasn't that bad."

The reality star has also been open about her dreams of having twins, a boy and a girl. She explained that IVF is "the only way" to make that happen, revealing "That's why they're doing it this way."

Who is Paris Hilton dating?

Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, businessman Carter Reum, reportedly first met 15 months ago in the Hamptons and have “literally been inseparable ever since,” as Paris described it.  

The star went on to explain: "I am so grateful just to have connected with him again after knowing each other for so long. I just felt like it was the perfect time in my life to just have real love and finally open my heart in such a way. He's just my dream guy."

Last month the couple celebrated their one-year anniversary together, with Paris posting a sweet tribute to Carter on Instagram. In her heartfelt caption, Paris revealed: ‘I have never felt so close to another person in my life’.

‘Love you forever my twin flame, my best friend, my other half, my partner for life’, she shared.
