The model and media personality and husband Carter Reum verified with PEOPLE the couple are now parents to a baby boy.

“It’s always been my dream to be a mother and I’m so happy that Carter and I found each other,” Hilton told PEOPLE. “We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy.”

Hilton took to her Instagram Tuesday and shared the big news with a close-up photo of a baby’s hand holding on to her thumb.

“You are already loved beyond words,” she captioned the post.

A number of Hilton’s famous friends jumped in the comments to offer kind words. Brand new mom herself, Chrissy Teigen dropped by writing “A baby!!!!! congratulations to you both.”
