Paris Hilton grew up in the company of some little superstars.
The reality television personality, now 36, reflects on being raised among fellow celebrities Kim Kardashian and Ivanka Trump. Hilton tells ES Magazine of her feelings towards Kim Kardashian and her family: “I love Kim. Basically we’ve been friends since we were born. I’m so proud of her, and everything she’s achieved. Her family is beautiful, the little boy and girl, and I’m really happy for her.”
The former “Simple Life” star also acknowledges her relationship with the daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump. “She is like, the New York scene,” Hilton says of Ivanka Trump. She says she hasn’t seen Ivanka in years, but that connection has followed her through her life.
Donald Trump signed Hilton to his modelling agency when she was 19 and reports suggest she supported the president. “I never said that I voted for him,” she replies. “I was asked if I liked him. I’ve known him since I was a little girl. But I never said I would vote for him.” When asked if she voted in the recent U.S. presidential election, Hilton says, “I was in Mexico at the time and travelling.”
But the past is the past and Hilton’s eyes are focused forward. She tells the publication about her keenness to start a family with boyfriend Chris Zylka. “It’s like the meaning of life to have your own family,” Hilton says. “And I’m happy that I waited to find the right person. I’m so in love. He’s the man of my life. We’re best friends.”
