Nicky Hilton Rothschild Has Taken to Motherhood ‘Like a Duck to Water,’ Says Mom Kathy Hilton

Nicky Hilton Rothschild has taken to her new role as mom to 10-week-old daughter Lily Grace Victoria “like a duck to water,” according to Kathy Hilton.

“She’s unbelievable,” Kathy told reporters of her daughter Nicky’s maternal instincts at the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular in Beverly Hills, California.

“Her computer and her phone have just been in the same place. We spent a month together out in the Hamptons and she’s breastfeeding and it’s a full time job — literally a full time job — so she can’t go anywhere for more than an hour. I think we went out twice.”

Along with a more subdued lifestyle, Kathy says that Nicky, 32, has everything on a schedule for Lily.

“With my babies, if I wanted to go pick them up I would just go in the room in the middle of the night, but Nicky is very much on a schedule. This is nap time, this is tummy time, so I’m just kind of like, ‘Okay,’ ” she says.

Kathy says that Nicky took to motherhood “like a duck to water” and didn’t ask her mom for advice — but that hasn’t stopped Kathy from sharing some.

“I’ll tell her certain things, but she’s read up on everything,” the proud mom explains.

According to Grandma, Lily looks like a very famous relative. “She looks a lot like Paris did, she really does,” she shares.

While Lily may only be 10 weeks old old, she’s already hitting a major milestone. “She is starting to smile, but big, big grins,” Kathy says.

That was such a sweet account of a mother’s perspective about her adult daughter’s transition to motherhood. She sounds very proud of her daughter. How awful for the previous commenter to nitpick like that and find mean things to say about people just because they are wealthy and famous. Celebrity mothers are human and mothers like the rest of us. Everyone doesn’t do everything the same way.
