Perez Hilton welcomed a new baby girl into his world. Born via a surrogate on Saturday afternoon, Mia Alma joins big brother Mario, who was born in 2013.
According to the New York Post, Perez Hilton didn’t divulge where his daughter was born in an effort to protect the identity of the surrogate.
Hilton spent Mother’s Day in the company of his mom and his new baby girl. His daughter’s name means “my soul” in Spanish, he said, “because I’m cheesy like that.”
Perez Hilton shared his exciting news via Instagram.
“It is with great pride and relief that I can finally announce: I am a dad again! http://goo.gl/WPcGNK,” he captioned a photo of his hand next to his daughter’s tiny foot.

The Associated Press reports that Perez Hilton kept the expected arrival of his new daughter a secret for many months.

“It’s been the hardest secret I’ve kept in a long time,” he said.
Perez Hilton is a single dad. He hasn’t found romance, but is most definitely open to it.
“I’m excited for the two of them, so they can have each other and my son can look after her,” he said. “It’s a real family now.”
Congratulations to Perez Hilton on the arrival of Mia Alma.
