President Trump is going to have more than the country to look after. News broke that Eric and Lara Trump are expecting their first child! The president couldn’t be more happy.

Eric Trump and his wife Lara are expecting their first child together.

The couple revealed on Monday morning that Lara, 33, is already in her second trimester and that she is pregnant with a baby boy.

Speaking to from Aspen, the couple said: ‘It has been an amazing year for the Trump family and we couldn’t be more excited about this next big step in our life.

Proud grandfather: President Donald Trump congratulated Eric and Lara on Twitter. This will be his ninth grandchild 


‘We are thrilled to bring a baby boy into the world this September.’

However, the expectant parents admitted that their secret was by no means an easy one to keep — particularly after they shared the happy news with Eric’s father, President Donald Trump.

‘Eric’s dad was so excited that we were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference,’ Lara told People of her father-in-law’s reaction to the news.

Eric said they found out that Lara was pregnant on his 33rd birthday on January 6, which was ‘pretty cool’.


Their impending arrival will be President Trump’s ninth grandchild, but the couple said that they are still having trouble coming up with a name because they have already used one of their favorite monikers.

‘We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out, Eric said, and Lara added: ‘We sort of screwed ourselves over there.’

Lara, who is due in September, admitted she was surprised by how ‘exhausted’ she was in the beginning of her pregnancy because she is a ‘very active person’.

However, the former Inside Edition producer said she is feeling ‘really good now’, and she couldn’t resist gushing about what an ‘amazing dad’ Eric is going to be.

Of course, Eric has had plenty of parenting practice thanks to his older brother and sister.
