Newly Freed Paris Gets Gifts and Visitors
"She's just excited to be at home and be with her family," says Hilton's aunt
Paris Hilton spent her first day of freedom Tuesday in her family’s Bel-Air mansion, receiving visitors and gifts of flowers and balloons.
“She’s very happy to be home – very, very happy,” said her aunt, Kyle Richards, who arrived with her two daughters. Richards said Hilton planned to relax and “spend family time.”
“I think she’s just excited to be at home and be with her family,” Richards added.
Hilton, 26, walked out of jail at about 12:15 a.m. Tuesday after serving 23 days for violating her probation in an alcohol-related driving case. The heiress smiled and waved, then embraced her mother, before being driven away from the jail in Lynwood, Calif.
She spent the night at the Hilton family compound, where an army of reporters and photographers were camped outside. Pink balloons were delivered to the house, as was a white frosted cake with the words “Welcome Home” written on it. No word on who sent the goodies. Pink hydrangeas, yellow lilies and pink roses valued at $200 were also delivered by Urban Florists Tuesday afternoon.
A family friend told PEOPLE Tuesday morning: “She has been missing her pets a lot. And she loves fast food. She’s looking forward to In-N-Out Burger and Taco Bell.”
Later in the day, two Taco Bell reps arrived at the mansion and announced they had a delivery of four bags of food from Paris to the media. They then handed out taquitos and chips to everyone, including police officers.
