Earlier this week, Paris Hilton delighted fans by revealing that she and husband Carter Reum are welcoming their new daughter.

Yes, there was plenty to be thankful for in the Hilton household this Thanksgiving, as just 11 months after the birth of their son Phoenix, Paris took to Instagram to reveal that she and Reum now have a baby girl.

Believed to be born via a surrogate (like their son), Hilton shared a heartwarming photo of a tiny pink baby outfit, along with a pair of adorable heart-shaped baby sunglasses and a sweet little teddy bear.

"Thankful for my baby girl," Hilton wrote in the caption, as the embroidery on the babygrow revealed her daughter's name: London.

The unique name is one that Hilton has had in mind for some time, as Hilton previously revealed during a chat on her podcast, I am Paris: "It's my favorite city, and I've always wanted to name my daughter London."

Hilton revealed that she had selected the name London long before her baby girl's arrival, saying: "I had actually picked that name for a long time now, probably over 10 years. I always wanted London. I love that name for my daughter." She added that she loved the idea of the mom-and-daughter duo being named after the two iconic capital cities.

However, long-time fans of the star have also unearthed an incredible connection Paris has with the name 'London'.

Anybody who watched the Disney Channel back in the 2000s may remember a popular sitcom that ran between 2005-2008 called The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.

The show starred identical twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse as the eponymous brothers, as they adjust to life living in one of the Boston's finest hotels, the Tipton. And one character who viewers adored was Brenda Song, who played the bubbly hotel heiress, London Tipton.

Hmmm... a bubbly hotel heiress... sound familiar?

Well, it turns out that the character was loosely based on the blonde socialite - something that Hilton acknowledged in a tweet back in 2017:

"London Tipton is basically me," she wrote.

So, by naming her own daughter London, Paris has - in essence - kinda named her baby girl after her. And this was not lost on her fans.

"The way London Tipton was based on Paris Hilton and now Paris is having a baby named London we've come full circle," one X user wrote.

"London Tipton is basically Paris Hilton and Paris named her daughter London," wrote a second, with a third adding: "The fact that London Tipton is a parody of Paris Hilton, and Paris is having a baby named London feels like a full circle moment."

And the tweets just kept coming:

Is this life imitating art or is art imitating life? I honestly don't know... I'm just glad we're all living in this moment.
