Congratulations are in order for Nicky Hilton Rothschild and her husband James Rothschild! The newlyweds, who married in an elaborate, princess-worthy wedding in July at Kensington Palace, are expecting their first child. And, with a fashion style maven as a mom and Paris Hilton as an aunt, one's things for certain — the little Rothschild is sure to be one chic baby.
"Nicky is very excited to become a mom," an insider told People of the Hilton daughter's pregnancy news. "She is feeling great!"
And it sounds like the expecting parents are already nesting! Mr. and Mrs. Rothschild were recently spotted browsing at Pottery Barn Kids at The Grove in Los Angeles. "They've just begun telling close friends and family," the insider revealed to the magazine. "Nicky and James are over the moon!"
Before serving as maid of honor at her sister's wedding, Paris Hilton told People that Nicky and James were the ultimate match made in heaven. "They're so loyal and they're so in love. They're like a prince and princess," she said before the royal-worthy wedding. "I think it's important to find someone you trust and love and spent the rest of your life. I think that's the meaning of life: to get married and have a family."

It seems like just yesterday we were gawking over Hilton's stunning, $75,000 lace Valentino wedding dress, complete with a high neck, long delicate sleeves, a 10-foot train and an embroidered cathedral-style veil — a veil which was so long, in fact, that it was at one point at risk of being ruined! On her wedding day, as the bride walked from a Bentley toward Kensington Palace's Orangery (the exact spot where she would exchange vows with Rothschild) Hilton's veil, which was even longer than her cathedral-length dress, was pinned beneath the luxury car's wheel. Luckily, her father, Rick Hilton, came to the rescue, according to People, and spared the lace.
After saying "I do" at the same spot where Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot in the royal wedding of the century years ago, Rothschild and Hilton jetted off on the honeymoon adventure of a lifetime: An exotic safari, complete with monkeys, elephants and, of course, a plethora of Instagrams from the new Mrs. Rothschild, who, it turns out, was more than happy to drop her iconic last name for her new married moniker just one week after exchanging vows.
