We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”

“I cannot wait,” she told People, adding that she’d like “two or three” kids. “I would want twins first,” she said. “I don’t know it’s hard to say. I always wish I had an older brother because I feel like if I did then he would protect me and things like that in school.”

The Simple Life star then added, “Maybe a boy first.”

Paris and Carter met when they were young, but started dating in 2019. They got engaged in Feburuary 2021 and married in November of the same year.
