“That was such a goal of mine before, because I wasn’t happy in my personal life,” Hilton said on the “Just for Variety” podcast on June 22.
“Also just going through what I went through, I always saw money as freedom and independence, and not being controlled. And I think that’s why I just had that as my focus in life."
Instead, Hilton said she's more invested in her personal life following her engagement to her boyfriend, Carter Reum, in February.
"Now that I am so incredibly happy and in love in my personal life, I’m not really interested in billions anymore," she said. "I’m more interested in babies."
Hilton acknowledged she has still maintained her work ethic, having "launched six different businesses," but credited Reum for motivating her to work hard.
"I've never worked harder in my life, and I think also having a partner who is so business-minded is really such an inspiration to me. I've never been with someone who's so brilliant and just really pushes me and makes me feel like I can be the best woman I can be," she said, adding that she "just can't wait for the next phase of my life."
The DJ and businesswoman also shared during a Wall Street Journal Magazine interview published Monday that she no longer cares for the nightclub scene after spending time indoors during the pandemic.
"I learned that I can stay home, that I don’t need to be everywhere, because I’ve always been one of those people who needs to be everywhere and then I have FOMO," Hilton said. "I don’t really care for going to clubs anymore."

Hilton and Reum began dating in December 2019 and announced their engagement in February, in which he surprised her with a private island getaway trip to celebrate her 40th birthday.
Days after their engagement, Hilton opened up about her intentions to start a family with her husband-to-be during her podcast, "This is Paris."
"It’s something that I’ve really been looking forward to and we’ve talked about a lot ever since we've been together, just having a family is going to be so exciting and how cute they're going to be, and how fun it's going to be," Hilton said at the time. "First the wedding, then the babies."
She also added that she plans to take Reum's last name.
"I'm going to take it, but I feel like a hyphenated thing like Paris Hilton-Reum, because my name is just my name," she explained. "I like it."
