Paris had been incredibly open in the past about her desire to become a mum. Speaking to People in December, she revealed that she and Carter had tried IVF during the Covid pandemic. "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,” she explained.

Paris and Carter had known each other for over a decade as friends, but the pair only began to date in 2019. They got engaged just before Valentine’s Day 2021, and subsequently tied the knot during a lavish ceremony in December of that same year.

Congratulations to the new parents!
