Pregnant Nicky Hilton glows on stylish outing in New York

by Gemma Strong

Nicky Hilton has already cemented her status as a style icon, but the mom-to-be is clearly set to inspire our maternity wardrobe dreams as well. Keeping cool New York breezes at bay, the socialite wore a brown sheepskin jacket over cool yet casual jeans and heeled boots for a Wednesday (Jan. 27) stroll, topping off the ensemble with a chic Louis Vuitton shoulder bag.

It was revealed earlier this month that 32-year-old Nicky is pregnant with her first child. The heiress tied the knot with financier James Rothschild at the Orangery in Kensington Palace Gardens in July 2015, and now her aunt, Kyle Richards, has confirmed the news in a sit-down interview with E!.

"Nicky's pregnant, and she's the first of the cousins to have a baby, so we're all really excited," the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said. "I can't wait to see what that baby is going to look like. It's going to be gorgeous."

On Jan. 13, an insider revealed to People that Nicky and James were expecting their first baby, thought to be due in the summer. "Nicky is very excited to become a mom. She's feeling great," the source said. "They've just begun telling close friends and family. Nicky and James are over the moon!"

Nicky and husband James Rothschild are expected to welcome their baby in the summer.

Speaking shortly before Nicky and James's wedding, her older sister, Paris Hilton, said the couple were a match made in heaven. "They're so loyal and they're so in love. They're like a prince and princess," said the 34-year-old, who acted as maid of honour at the nuptials.

"I think it's important to find someone you trust and love … I think that's the meaning of life: to get married and have a family."
