Barron Trump, 10, has kept a pretty low profile — considering he is the youngest member of one of America’s most well-known politicians, Donald Trump, 70. Although Barron has appeared sparingly by the side of his famous father on his highly-publicized campaign trail, he may be recognized as the only one of Donald’s five children who didn’t speak on behalf of the GOP nominee at the Republican National Convention. Barron has been said to be just like his father, even earning himself the title “Little Donald.” Here are more fun facts about the mogul’s son.
1.) Barron is the ONLY child of Donald and his current wife, Melania.
Donald has been married three times, first to model Ivana Zelníčková, and the former pair share two sons and a daughter together: Donald Jr, Eric and Ivanka. He next married actress Marla Maples, who is the mother of his daughter, Tiffany. After Donald’s second divorce, he tied the knot with Melania and she gave birth to their only son Barron in March 2006.
2.) The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Barron’s nickname, “Little Donald,” was earned due to the fact he enjoys bonding with his father. One of his favorite father-son activities include playing golf on one of his dad’s many courses. He also prefers to wear suits instead of sweatpants, Melania previously shared with ABC News!
3.) By the age of five, Barron already knew two languages.
Barron’s first language is English, but he is also fluent in Slovenian. Considering the fact Melania grew up in Sevnica, she made sure to teach her son the ropes. Wow! The New York native has heard the foreign language since birth, so he eventually soaked it up like a sponge.
4.) Although Barron has kept a low profile, he’s been featured alongside his dad on TV.
Barron appeared on a 2014 episode of The Apprentice. He made his debut on the finale of his dad’s popular reality series at just eight-years-old. Donald’s youngest son has also been seen a few times at the Trump Invitational Grand Prix at Mar-a-Lago.
5.) Barron is in full support of his father becoming the next President of The United States.
Melania revealed that she spends a lot of time with their son these days, considering Donald’s hectic campaign schedule. Even though he misses out on bonding time, he’s still behind his dad’s vision. “He supports his dad 100 percent. Of course, we both miss him because he is on the road a lot, but [he] understands and he’s doing great,” Melania told Us Weekly.
