In addition to admitting she didn’t tell Kathy about Phoenix’s birth for a week, she admitted she didn’t tell her sister. Nicky Hilton Rothschild either. “I just feel that my life has been so public, and I’ve never really had anything just be mine,” she added. “I feel like just my life in so many ways has been invaded.”

“I just really felt that I wanted to have this journey with us only,” she added. “It was hard to keep that in because we were so excited and wanted to tell our families, but you’re just nervous because if you tell one person then you know they tell someone and then all of a sudden it’s like in TMZ or Page Six.
