Nicky Hilton is an American businesswoman with an estimated net worth of $20 million. She was born on October 5, 1983 in New York City. Her mother is Kathy Hilton and her father is Richard Hilton. Her mother is the older sister to former child stars and current reality stars Kyle and Kim Richards, and her father is the man who owns Hilton hotels. She is one of four children. She is the younger sister of socialite Paris Hilton and she has two younger brothers as well. She was born into privilege and has spent her entire life enjoying it, though she has managed to stay out of trouble and focus on her life in a positive manner more so than a few of her siblings.
She’s been to school, she’s graduated and she’s focused on her career in fashion. Back in 2004, Nicky Hilton took it upon herself to launch a fashion line of her own so that she could focus on her future and do all that she needed to do to make sure she was able to adequately take care of herself despite being an heiress. She also has a line of handbags and a secondary line that is more expensive and aimed at more upscale buyers. She also has a line of jewelry. However, designing is not all that she’s done in her life. She’s also modeled, and she’s made a business of marketing herself and her brand to make her future brighter.
In 2006, she and her partners decided that she should take on the business of her family and open her own hotels. Rather than using her family name, however, she calls them the Nicky O hotels, and she opened one in Miami and one is Chicago. In 2014, she wrote and published a book about style with HarperCollins. A year later, she made the decision to work with famous makeup design house Smashbox to create a line of makeup for the woman who wants to look amazing at all times, and she was able to market that and do well with it.
Personally, she has made some questionable decisions. In 2004, she married a friend of hers in the middle of the night in Las Vegas, and promptly annulled the marriage inside of three months. When she met James Rothschild in 2011, she began dating him. Another heir to a very important family, the two hit it off right away and became engaged. They were married in 2015 and are currently expecting their first child, a little girl during summer 2016. This will be a first child for both, and the first grandchild in the Hilton family. It’s a big deal for all involved, though Hilton is not planning on taking much time off her ventures and her businesses when she becomes a mother. She will work to balance her life as a mom and as a businesswoman so that she can continue to grow her net worth and succeed in business.
