Why would babies want pacifiers or diapers when they could wear Italian-made couture?
Paris Hilton’s son, Phoenix Barron, just celebrated his first birthday, and he’s been receiving all kinds of love and special gifts from Hilton’s celebrity friends. In fact, pal Kim Kardashian sent quite the stylish present to the birthday boy: a couple of Fendi outfits.
Hilton showed off the gifts in a video on her Instagram Story, where she was heard saying, “Phoenix is going to love these!” (You can see screenshots of the stories here.)
One-year-old Phoenix was gifted a steel-blue zip-up hooded jacket and matching sweatpants. He also received a cream polo with black and gold stripes on the collar, paired with beige slacks. The polo featured the word Fendi stitched onto one side of the collar, while the other three pieces included the brand’s logo on embroidered patches.
In the same Instagram clip, Hilton showed that the present included a card, which read, “Phoenix, Happy Birthday!” The note was signed with Kardashian’s name, as well as those of her four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
From the look of things, it appears Phoenix rang in his first year with quite the collection of gifts. Just yesterday, Hilton shared a slideshow to her Instagram account, where she posed with him in a room full of giant stuffed animals. For her part, Hilton wore a velour tracksuit in a light blush color, embroidered with hearts along the sleeves and the sides of the pants. Meanwhile, baby Phoenix wore a pair of denim overalls over a white polo, and he matched with his mommy in pink high-top sneakers.
Hilton shares Phoenix with her husband, Carter Reum. They welcomed the child through surrogacy in January 2023, and they went through the same process a few months later, when they welcomed their daughter, London, in November.
