Paris Hilton has shared an adorable picture of herself as a baby being cradled in her mother Kathy's arms outside the White House.

The star, 42, posted the sweet image on her Instagram alongside a present-day picture of the pair at the government building wearing black suits as they campaigned against child abuse together.

Other images shared in the carousel showed the businesswoman in a monochrome houndstooth dress and black glasses posing outside the home of the US president's official residence in Washington D.C.

In May 2022, Hilton visited the capital to call for the government to change laws governing youth care facilities after revealing her own experience of them as a teenager.

Captioning the post, Hilton wrote: "While a part of me is nervous to share more of my life story than I ever have before, I'm so proud of my personal journey and how I've turned my pain into purpose to make a positive impact and reform the troubled teen industry.

"No matter who you are or what you're going through, one thing I know for certain is it's never too late to speak out and fight for positive change.

"Who knows, you might just pass seven state laws and change the lives of thousands of children too."

Although Hilton has appeared on reality TV shows in the past, sharing areas of her life, sharing her story this time around takes the form of her autobiographical book Paris: The Memoir, which be released in the UK on 14 March, but you can pre-order now.

Her husband Carter Reum and long-time friend Lindsay Lohan were among those to leave messages of support in the comments section under her post.

Friend Nakeisha Turk added: "So proud of you!! Building an even more impactful legacy for Phoenix!!" in reference to her new son.

The star welcomed her first child, via surrogate, in January, announcing the happy news in an adorable Instagram post showing her holding his tiny hand.

However, the couple, who married in 2021, only revealed his name, Phoenix, late last month.
