CARTER Reum announced the arrival of his first child with Paris Hilton in an adorable Instagram post.
The entrepreneur married the hotel heiress in 2021 and the couple now share a baby together – here’s everything we know.
Who is Carter Reum?
Born on February 5, 1981, Carter Reum is an American author, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist.
He teamed up with his brother Courtney and co-founded the successful alcohol brand VEEV Spirits – which made Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list in the US.
After making a fortune in business, the entrepreneur also published a book through Random House and Penguin Books called Shortcut Your Startup: Ten Ways To Speed Up Entrepreneurial Success.
But his writing career doesn’t stop there, he is also a contributing author for Huffington Post and Inc.
Paris Hilton’s husband has also dabbled in acting, appearing in several episodes of Hatched.
He has commentated on networks like CBS and Fox.
In 2016, the businessman focused his energies on co-founding a venture capital firm called M13 Investments with his brother Courtney and sold VEEV.
According to Forbes, the company raised a $400 million fund in March 2022 to invest in start-ups that are “the tech layer behind consumer trends in categories like work, health and money.”
When did Paris and Carter get married?
The couple tied the knot on Nov. 11, 2021, in a lavish ceremony at her late grandfather Barron’s Bel-Air estate, where Paris sparkled in an Oscar de la Renta gown.
Of course, the guest list also included her family, which meant that RHOBH stars Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards were in attendance.
Other big names included Emma Roberts, Paula Abdul, Bebe Rexha and fashion designer Rachel Zoe.
At the time of their marriage, they had been dating for two years but had been in each other’s lives for 15 years.
The friendship led to something more romantic over Thanksgiving in 2019 when they started chatting after a family dinner.
Paris revealed on The Trend Report With Mara Schiavocampo podcast, “We just started talking, he got my phone number and we were flirting that day.
“We went back that night for dinner. I just saw how sweet he was with his mom, we were talking more and I just felt a great connection.
“And then we had our first kiss and then our first date two nights later and we’ve been literally inseparable ever since.”
The relationship was made publicly official in April 2020 when they were photographed looking cozy together at the Golden Globe Awards after party.
What is Carter Reum’s Dating History?
Carter Reum is known to have a daughter with reality star actress Laura Bellizzi, who was pictured pregnant in 2011.
Laura also previously made headlines for being in a relationship with Mel Gibson.
His daughter has lived with her mother since birth and Reum reportedly only met her once.
The entrepreneur does not have a traditional father-daughter relationship with the child, but does support her financially.
An insider claimed the child was “triggered” after witnessing Carter’s wedding to Paris, and felt “left out” of her father’s life.
They said, “She just really wants to complete the missing pieces of her puzzle.
“She’s at that age where self-identity is so important, and kids want to know who they are and where they come from. It’s important for him to help her do that.
‘It is not about [Carter] or the mother. It is about making the child whole. She is definitely an amazing little girl.
“She has so much love to give. And she wants to give it to him, his family and everyone he loves.”
A spokesman for Carter stated: “The people who matter to this story have known about it for 10 years.
“Carter is supportive of this child. Although he doesn’t have a traditional father-daughter relationship with her, he has taken care of her since she was born and will continue to do so.”
What have fans said about Carter?
In 2021, Carter and Paris starred in their own reality TV show Paris In Love.
But viewers continued to doubt Carter’s true intentions.
One fan on Twitter shared, “Watched #ParisInLove, and Carter seems so toxic, overbearing and controlling. Putting her down in front of his family, whining her, hovering over her…creepy!
“I thought she was going to cry. I feel sorry for her… she has been emotionally abused for so long, I hope she finds true happiness.”
Another stated, “5 episodes deep and Carter has gone from Prince Charming to a controlling manipulator very quickly.
“How he stood behind her at the table. That was humiliating for her and he smiled.”
A third summed it up: “Carter is a walking red flag. This isn’t a ‘nice guy,’ this is just a toxic, ugly man.”
However, a production source told The Sun: “Carter obviously loves the wedding, but he hates the TV stuff around it.
“He’s a nice guy, but he freezes on camera.
“He hates every second of this. I wonder how long he can last.”
In the years since, Carter seems to have put rumors to bed as the pair have remained happily married and welcomed their baby in 2023.
