Earlier this month, Perez Hilton became a dad for the third time! Daughter Mayte Amor was born via surrogate on October 4, 2017. Perez shared his news in an emotional Instagram post 6 days after his second daughter's birth.
"I am beaming with joy and pride as I share with you that my family has grown yet again."
Born at 41 weeks, Perez explained the meaning behind Mayte Amor's name. "Named after her grandparents — Mario & Teresita — their love will forever flow through her and protect her and all of my kids."
Mayte Amor joins two siblings in the Hilton household: 2-year-old sister Mia Alma and 4½-year-old brother Mario Armando III. Both were also born via surrogate. 39-year-old Perez thanked all three of his surrogates in his heartfelt message.

"And, most importantly, thank you to the surrogate who gave me the greatest gift anyone could ever receive! And thank you to the other two surrogates who helped us as well! And thank you to all the surrogates who give so selflessly and whose kindness is inspiring!"
Perez added that he will remain an advocate for surrogacy and hopes that one day it will be legal everywhere in the United States.
As the new family of four adjusts to another baby in the household, Perez exclaimed that he's "deliriously tired and equally happy!"
"This is a very special time for me and my family!" Perez added. "Family time is the best time! Family first! They are my everything!"
We send our congratulations to this gay dad on his family's latest addition.
