Nicky Hilton Rothschild Debuts Baby Bump at amfAR Gala As Sister Paris Says Baby’s Sex Will Be a Surprise

Nicky Hilton Rothschild debuted her baby bump at the amfAR Gala in New York Wednesday night.

Wearing a white lace dress with a sheer cut out around her growing belly, the mom-to-be, who’s expecting her first child with husband James┬áRothschild, looked radiant alongside her date for the evening, big sister Paris Hilton.

“I am so excited. I can’t wait to be an aunt — my sister is thrilled,” Paris, 34, told PEOPLE.

And while Hilton will “for sure” be the cool aunt, she’s not ready to place any bets on whether she’ll be welcoming a niece or a nephew.

“She’s so tiny right now you can’t even tell [she’s pregnant],” Hilton explains. “Usually you can tell with the size if it’s maybe a boy or girl, but we have no idea — and they want it to be a surprise.”

Hilton, who now spends the majority of her time in Switzerland, will be spending fashion week in New York before flying back to spend Valentine’s Day and her birthday with boyfriend Thomas Gross.

“We’re going on a surprise trip. He’s very romantic and he loves surprising me — this is one of his little surprises,” she shares.

Paris turning 35? Yikes! She better get serious with this Gross man. She reached advanced maternal age in a few weeks!

What bump?

She’s gonna stay long enough to have several anchor babies with that boy she married then kick him to the curb, lol.
He looks weird.

Nicky seems more grounded than Paris.

It’s a girl, you can tell in her face. I know it offends women but for,some reason I have found it true most of the time. With my girls my face changed, with my boys it didn’t…same with a lot of other women I know.

Yay congratulations to her and James on the impending bundle of joy.
