[email protected] & I are excited to announce that we are adding a boy to #TeamTrump in September. It’s been an amazing year. We are blessed,” Eric Trump tweeted.


“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” Eric Trump told People.

According to Lara, the president was very excited about the news. “Eric’s dad was so excited that we were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference.”

Lara is now in her second trimester.

“I was exhausted in the beginning,” Lara explained. “It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me. It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”

No word yet on what a name for the newest member of the family.

“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” Eric said.

Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa have five children, and Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have three children.
