Watch dramatic moment Paris Hilton introduces son to Kathy, Nicky after secret surrogacy
Paris Hilton clapped back at internet trolls who criticized her baby boy Phoenix’s big head.
The “Simple Life” alum shared a photo of her and her son during his first trip to New York City, but commenters immediately became distracted by the tot’s cranium.
“y’all he’s just got a lot on his mind leave the kid alone 😭,” commented one follower.
“Does he have encephalitis?” asked another follower. “Like what is actually going on I’m not trying to be rude that doesn’t seem normal.”
The hotel heiress called out the critics after a TikToker created a video in defense of Hilton, 42, and her 9-month-old baby.
“ 🥺😢There are some sick people in this world,” she commented on the video. “☹️My angel is perfectly healthy.”
She added, “And yes, of course, he has been to a doctor, he just has a large brain.”
She said the trolls who mocked the size of her baby’s head were “sick.”

Hilton later shared a statement on her Instagram Story in response to the negativity.
“Living life in the spotlight, comments are inevitable, but targeting my child, or anyone else’s for that matter, is unacceptable. This hurts my heart more deeply than words can describe,” she wrote.
“I’ve worked hard to cultivate an environment that is all about love, respect, and acceptance and expect the same in return.”
She continued, “Phoenix is my world and has been the biggest blessing of my life. Every day with him is a reminder of what truly matters. It’s hard to fathom that there are people who would target such innocence.
“I hope that people can treat one another with more kindness and empathy.”
“And yes, of course, he has been to a doctor, he just has a large brain,” she wrote in response to a TikTok video defending her. Instagram/parishilton
