The DJ and heiress, 39, revealed on Tuesday's episode of The Trend Reporter with Mara podcast that she's started in vitro fertilization (IVF) with boyfriend Carter Reum, praising the 39-year-old businessman for being "so supportive" throughout the process. According to Hilton, she started looking into IVF because it was "the only way" she could ensure that she can have "twins that are a boy and a girl." "We have been doing the IVF, so I can pick twins if I like," Hilton shared, explaining longtime friend Kim Kardashian — who welcomed two children via surrogate — was the one "who told me about that. I didn't even know anything about it." "I'm happy that she told me that advice and introduced me to her doctor," Hilton said. Paris Hilton.

"It was tough, but I knew it would be worth it. I did it a couple of times," she recalled, before commending Reum. "Just doing it together and having a partner that is just so supportive and always makes me feel just like a princess all the time ... that it wasn't that bad." In the interview, Hilton also called Reum her "dream guy," saying that she's "100 percent" sure he is the one for her. "I'm really excited just to move on for the next step of my life and finally just have a real life," she said. "Because I really do believe that having a family and having children is the meaning of life. And I haven't got to experience that yet, because I didn't feel like anybody deserved that love from me, and now I finally found the person who does." Paris Hilton and Carter Reum.

"So if you have any suggestions, I'm asking my friends. I don't want a theme of cities, but I don't know — it's hard to decide. London for sure for the girl; the boy, I'm just still trying to decide on." Last month, The Simple Life alum celebrated her one-year anniversary with Reum by posting a sweet tribute on her Instagram.
