We take a closer look at the private life of Barron Hilton II, husband to Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorf and Paris Hilton’s younger brother.
The name Hilton is not only synonymous with hotels and the hospitality industry, but it is also now synonymous with reality TV. The latter is thanks, at least in part, to the socialite known as Paris Hilton, who was really forced into the public eye thanks to the “leaking” of an intimate tape of her and her partner, and a series of reality shows and TV appearances.
When we think of the name Hilton, it’s Paris whom we think of the most, yet it is her younger brother Barron Hilton II whom we will be learning more about today.
Barron Hilton II is a socialite who is in the limelight nowhere near as much as his sisters Paris and Nicky, yet thanks to his marriage to Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff – a member of the German noble family, more and more people are beginning to show an interest in Barron.
Here are some things to know about the brother of Paris and Nicky Hilton.
Barron Hilton II Prefers To Maintain A Quieter Life
Unlike his sisters, 32-year-old Barron Hilton II prefers to live his life behind the camera, rather than in front of it.
Don’t get us wrong, Barron Hilton II is still a socialite and in his younger days he would party with the best of them, but now that he is growing older and is a family man, he has matured and would much rather live a quieter life.
He is married to German royal Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorf and the two have a baby daughter together who was born in March 2020.
Barron And His Wife Met In The Caribbean
When you’re a member of the royal family or a relative of one of the wealthiest families in the world, come New Year’s Eve you can easily afford to ring in the New Year somewhere hot and exotic such as the Caribbean, and that’s what the pair did and it’s how they first met.
Both Barron Hilton II and Tessa were staying on the island of St. Barts for New Year 2016 when they bumped into each other in a restaurant and instantly hit it off.
They Were Married On The Same Island Where They Met
Shortly after meeting in early 2016, the two began a relationship and just two years later in 2018, the couple were married.
They loved St. Barts so much that they were married on the same island.
Barron And His Wife Have Unusual Hobbies For People Of Their Status
Whereas it’s perfectly normal for most people in their 20s, and even 30s, to enjoy DJ’ing, you wouldn’t expect a member of the royal family to become a DJ, yet that is precisely what Barron’s wife does.
Barron himself also has an out-of-character hobby as he enjoys cooking and even ran an Instagram account called ‘Barron’s Bites’. The IG account attracted a lot of attention, yet Barron seemingly didn’t have the time or passion to update anymore, as the last post was way back in 2017. Shame, really, as the food on there looked divine.
Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff And Barron Hilton II’s Children
Milou Alizée Hilton was born in March of 2020 to Baron Hilton, the younger brother of Paris Hilton, and the fabulous German Countess-wife Tessa. When deciding on a name, the couple made the romantic choice of naming their first daughter after the place they first met, Pointe Milou in St Barths. In an interview, they further elaborated: ‘Her middle name, Alizée, means “trade winds” in French. The winds of the island are what brought us together and then a few years later, it is what brought us Milou. She is a gift from the island.’
Despite their combined fame’, the couple enjoyed a relatively quiet life with their first child together. Then, in February 2022 the couple made the surprise announcement that they were expecting again! It was an equal surprise to the lovebirds who commented: “It wasn’t planned, but we’ve realized that the best things in life never are.” In a surprising, and rather old-school move, they also said: “We have decided to wait until the baby’s birth to discover the gender.’
