Paris Hilton, known for her glamorous lifestyle and reality TV stardom, found herself in hot water after revealing a surprising detail about her early days as a mom. The 42-year-old socialite admitted to not changing her son Phoenix's diaper for an entire month, sparking a wave of criticism from disapproving social media users.

Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed Phoenix via surrogate in January, marking her journey into motherhood. However, her recent confession about avoiding diaper duty for a month drew ire from online critics. One comment on an Instagram post addressing the revelation expressed disbelief, stating, "Beyond disturbing she had to ask let alone not feel normal doing it."

The critic continued, emphasizing the importance of a mother being hands-on and engaged, especially in today's challenging world. Another commenter echoed this sentiment, expressing astonishment at Hilton's hesitation, considering she did not experience the physical toll of childbirth. "I felt a tremendous amount of guilt if I missed anything with my first baby even a diaper change... that wasn't very healthy either," the comment read.

Despite the backlash, Hilton found defenders among her Instagram followers. Some argued that her reliance on support staff, including nannies and assistants, was a personal choice rather than a reflection of her ability to be a good mother. "This misrepresents her. She was scared of doing anything wrong so she had her nanny do everything. She had to empower herself to realize she could be a good mom," one supporter wrote.

Others pointed out the practicalities of Hilton's lifestyle, stating, "That's what nannies, chefs, housekeepers, and assistants are for. If you think this lady does any of these mundane things, you are nuts. She has an army of help."

The controversy unfolded during a conversation between Hilton and her sister Nicky Hilton in the third episode of the second season of "Paris in Love." Paris, seemingly uncertain about changing Phoenix's diaper, sought advice from her sister, saying, "Should I learn how to change his diaper?" Despite her initial hesitation, she eventually proclaimed, "I said I wouldn't do this on my birthday, but I will for you. Anything for Phoenix."

The admission left many questioning Hilton's approach to motherhood, while others defended her choices as a new mom navigating the challenges that come with raising a child. The mixed reactions highlight the ongoing debate surrounding celebrity parenting and the expectations placed on public figures in their roles as parents.
