Donald Trump is about to become a 9-time grandpa! The POTUS’ middle son, Eric Trump, & his wife are officially expecting their 1st child, and we are so thrilled for the couple! The two already know their baby’s due date AND that they’re having a boy — find out Donald’s reaction to the news here!
SO exciting! Eric Trump, 33, and his wife Lara, are expecting their first child this September, and they’re having a son, according to People magazine. The couple revealed the exciting news on Mar. 20, just over two months after finding out for themselves. “We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” Eric told the publication. And apparently, since then, their pregnancy was a hard secret to contain!
“Eric’s dad was so excited,” Lara gushed, “that we were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference.” But luckily that didn’t happen! Lara and Eric’s newborn son will be Donald Trump‘s, 70, ninth grandchild — so we can only imagine the president’s excitement. But obviously the expectant mom and dad are just as psyched about welcoming a new little one into the fam!
“Eric and I are excited to add boy to our pack in September! 💙 #BabyTrump,” Lara captioned her announcement pic on Instagram, which featured her and Eric posing in the snow along with their dogs. How cute is that? The mom-to-be is now in her second trimester and, while she’s feeling great now, wasn’t always feeling so hot. “I was exhausted in the beginning,” Lara revealed.
“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,” she says. “It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.” And now that they’re expecting, Lara and Eric need to come up with a name for their bundle of joy.
“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” Eric said. Lara added, “We sort of screwed ourselves over there.” But while thinking of a name is just the first challenge of becoming a parent, Lara says she’s not actually nervous about motherhood. “I knew I always wanted kids someday,” she said. And she already has confidence in Eric’s parenting abilities!
“Eric’s going to be an amazing dad,” Lara gushed. “The nieces and nephews love hanging with him. He’s the cool uncle. He’s watched Frozen many times.” Aw! Congrats again, you two!
