"Oh God, the neck! Did they ever hold babies before?!" Paris Hilton and her mother, Kathy Hilton, faced criticism over a video featuring the newborn Phoenix
American socialite Paris Hilton and her mother, actress and star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," faced criticism online due to the trailer for the upcoming season of the reality show "Paris in Love." The video features the star introducing her son, Phoenix Hilton, born through surrogacy, to her mother.
However, users expressed confusion over the way Paris and Kathy held the baby in their arms, as reported by Newsweek. The women were seen awkwardly picking up the baby without properly supporting his neck.
It was the first time Paris Hilton revealed her newborn son, Phoenix, to her mother. Kathy was unaware that her daughter and son-in-law were expecting a child, making her very surprised. Hilton had kept the birth of her son a secret, even from her closest relatives.
"Your grandson, Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum," the main character of the reality show said in the video. She then handed her son to his mother. The video was published on the X network and has received over 4 million views.
People began to actively comment on what they saw and share their concerns:
"Phoenix was fighting for her life with two women who had seemingly never held a baby before," wrote a user.
"Is she...? She's never held a baby before?" another asked.
"How many times did I just say: "Oh my god, this baby's neck," wrote a third person.
However, not everyone saw anything wrong with the video, with some defending the women:
"It's the first time Katie sees her grandson, and she had no idea she was going to be a grandmother... I thought it was a very beautiful and real moment," someone commented.
"Am I missing something? I thought it was cute," said another.
During the filming of the second season of her show, Paris Hilton shared her journey into motherhood and explained why she didn't tell her family about the birth of her child. "I had given my life to others for so long, it was very important for me to keep it a secret," she said in the trailer.
Paris Hilton recently announced that she and her husband had given birth to their second child through surrogacy, a baby girl named London. This time, the only people who knew that the couple was expecting another baby were Paris' parents and her sister Nicky Hilton.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA told about how Hilton showed new photos of her son and worried the network: fans advised the star to go to the hospital with the baby. The star did not remain silent and responded to the accusations that her son was sick: she explained why her offspring has a "strange" head.
