Is Paris Hilton ready to start a family of her own?

The socialite-turned-business mogul, 35, tells PEOPLE about her brand new baby niece, 11-week-old Lily Grace Victoria. Hilton’s sister Nicky Hilton Rothschild and her husband James welcomed Lily in July, and Hilton says she is one proud auntie.

“I’m obsessed with her,” Hilton says. “She’s literally the most perfect baby I’ve ever seen. She has these little angel lips and this cute little nose and these big blue eyes.”

And Hilton says her niece is ready to start gabbing.

“She tries to talk, she’s just learning how to talk … but she wants to talk,” she says.

Hilton says Nicky, 32, recently made the move to New York — just “a couple blocks up the street” from her big sister. And with Lily in close proximity, Hilton admits she has caught a case of baby fever.

“I’ve never seen Nicky so happy,” she says. “She’s got a man that’s so loyal. I don’t trust because I got hurt so much in my life that I don’t want to put myself out there to get hurt again … But I would love one day to find my soulmate and someone who I could give my life to and build a life with and a family … Hopefully one day.”

Hilton says she has been “on a plane so much” that she doesn’t have time to find her special someone quite yet.

“I feel like I’m finally an adult,” she says of her booming retail business ventures abroad. “I’ve grown so much as a person and a woman since The Simple Life.

She adds, “I’ve been through a lot, but I’ve worked really hard, and I’ve built my empire. I run my company with 17 different product lines. I’m going nonstop, constantly traveling.”

Freeze your eggs Paris, you are already considered advanced maternal age and they give those labels for a reason and it isn’t to make people feel bad or ‘old’.

I like Nicky; I think she’s the most level-headed member of the family. But I really hope she keeps Paris away from her daughter. Paris is the worst influence she could possibly have.

Paris is a lovely person inside and out.,and it shows in her countenance.
She will undoubtedly be a great mother some day.

Freezing eggs is a good idea. It takes the pressure off young women who want to build a business first.Wishing Paris the best.

I hope Paris has frozen some eggs. All women who are 30 and haven’t had children yet should really consider it. I had 3 very easily in my 20s. Then we started trying to conceive again when I was 31 and it took 3.5 years. Everyone is different, but it doesn’t hurt to do it if you can afford to.
