6 Things to Know About Barron Trump, the Youngest of Donald's Heirs
There's a new first kid in town. (Though not in D.C.)
So long, Sasha and Malia Obama. The Trumps are taking over 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Of Donald Trump's five children, Barron Trump, his youngest son with third wife and future first lady Melania Trump, will likely be the only of his offspring to (eventually) take residence in the White House. It was reported this week that Melania and Barron will not immediately move to Washington, D.C., in January, instead staying at their Manhattan penthouse in Trump Tower so that Barron, 10, can continue his schooling at an Upper West Side private school; the pair may follow Trump to the White House at the end of the school year.
However, Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka — Trump's children with first wife Ivana — will likely be close by (or, at least, regularly making the commute from N.Y.C.) in order to give their dad support, in an official capacity or otherwise. Ivanka has already distanced herself from her eponymous clothing line to avoid a conflict of interest as she pledges to work on behalf of women's interests in a bigger way.
But inquiring minds want to know, what is America's newest first kid — a 10-year-old born of a former model and real estate billionaire — really like? Will he stir up trouble, as Bush twins Barbara and Jenna did when their partying habits were documented by the tabloids? Or like Malia Obama did when she was photographed smoking weed at a music festival?
Here's everything to know about the littlest Trump heir:
1. He attends the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Barron is enrolled at the prestigious private school, which costs approximately $45K per year. The school was originally founded in 1764 and boasts famous alumni including Moby Dick author Herman Melville and beloved Buffy the Vampire actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
2. Barron is fluent in a second language.
Thanks to his Slovenian mom, he is fluent in both English and Slovene.
3. For a 10-year-old boy, he is very neat and tidy. And forget having his own room — he resides on his own floor.
Like most elementary schoolers, Barron enjoys playing with "cars and helicopters," but he would never do anything crazy, like say, sleep on a bedspread covered with cars. "He likes clean and white," Melania told Parenting.com of Barron's favored aesthetic (which is apparently different than dad Trump's preference for all things gilded). That being said, Melania adds that Barron did like to draw on the walls when he was younger. "Since he has his own floor, he can [draw] those things on his living room and his own walls," she said.
4. Barron moisturizes with caviar.
What, you don't? Melania told ABC News in 2013 that she applied Caviar Complex C6 to her young son each night after his bath. The moisturizer was part of Melania's short-lived skincare collection, which was briefly sold at QVC and Lord & Taylor.
5. His nickname is "mini Donald."
Though there's already a Donald Trump Jr., Melania told ABC News in the same 2013 interview that she refers to the youngest Trump offspring as "mini Donald" nonetheless.
6. Barron is "not a sweatpants child."
In her interview with Parenting.com, Melania noted that her little one doesn't mind dressing in a suit everyday. Good news for the Donald J. Trump Collection suit business?
