Perez Hilton welcomes third child
Perez Hilton’s family is now a party of four.
The 39-year-old celebrity blogger welcomed his third child, a baby girl named Mayte Amor, via surrogate on Oct. 4, he announced via social media on Tuesday.
“Mayte Amor waited until 41 weeks to make her fashionably late arrival,” he wrote alongside a picture of himself, his mother and the infant. “She’s doing everything a newborn should do and doing it so well. She’s a whole 7 days advanced!”
Mayte weighed in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces and measured 20 inches long.
Hilton took the moment to do some self-reflecting on his evolution over the years since he first came to fame as a gossip writer.
“A lot has changed over the past decade plus and I am so thankful, humbled, and truly indebted that you have accepted me through the fat and the fug and the then and the now,” he wrote. “We’ve grown up together and evolved and I continue to do so – in the best way possible!”
In the same post he thanked the surrogate who carried baby Mayte. He also used surrogates for his 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter.
“Thank you to all the surrogates who give so selflessly and whose kindness is inspiring!” he said. “There are still many states in America that, sadly, prohibit surrogacy and I hope to use my voice to advocate for making it legal across the country!”
