At the time, Wilson told her followers: “I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!
“I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making … but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care.
“Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!”
In February, she announced that she and partner Ramona Agruma, Los Angeles-based fashion and jewellery designer, were engaged.
3) Paris Hilton
The US socialite and businesswoman, 42, announced the arrival of her son with partner Carter Reum in January this year – but said they had kept the birth a secret from even their closest friends and family.
She revealed her son’s name was Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum, and had wanted to choose a name on the theme of world cities, like herself.
Hilton, the granddaughter of the luxury hotel’s founder Conrad Hilton, has been married to Carter Reum since 2021.

5) Brigitte Nielsen

“Do I understand that [people] are a bit sceptical? Yes, I understand. I also totally respect the fact that not everybody likes it and agrees with it, but it is my life.”
