Paris Hilton has been making a lot headlines lately, which isn't totally surprising as she is one of the biggest names out there.

Not just her, but also the model's family - particularly the two children she welcomed in this year, Phoenix and London.

In January, Hilton and husband, Carter Reum, welcomed their first baby together, a son named Phoenix.

Taking to Instagram at the time, Hilton posted a blue heart emoji alongside a caption that read: "You are already loved beyond words."

It took many of her fans by complete surprise because she had been seen at multiple events prior to the post with no form of baby bump.

Hilton eventually explained in an interview with People magazine that she and Carter decided to have a baby through a surrogate.

The couple initially went through IVF when the coronavirus pandemic kicked off.

"We started going and doing it like a few months in because the world was shut down," she said to the entertainment outlet.

"We knew we wanted to start a family, and I was like, 'This is perfect timing. Usually, I'm on a plane 250 days out of the year, and let's just get all of the eggs stocked and ready,' and we have tons of them just waiting."

However, they later opted for surrogacy.

That is where Phoenix comes in, and in a video on Instagram uploaded earlier this year, Paris explained the meaning behind the name in an excerpt from her upcoming memoir.

"Phoenix has a few good pop culture reference points, but more importantly it’s a bird that flames out and then rises from the ashes to fly again.

"I want my son to grow up knowing that triumph and disaster go around and come around throughout our lives, and that this should give us great hope for the future."

On Friday (24 November), Hilton took to Instagram once more to announce she was 'thankful for my baby girl', alongside a photo of pink outfit with the name London written on it.

After Phoenix arrived, many were unsure behind the actual meaning behind the name.

After all, the boy's name could refer to the mythical creature or even the band.

But after the arrival of London recently, it is evidentially clear Hilton's children are named after cities.

This is, of course, the same with her own name, so there appears to be some kind of tradition forming here.
