Happy, growing family
Carolina is President Trump’s 10th grandchild, the second to come from Eric and Lara. The president has been blessed with five grandchildren from his eldest son Donald Trump, Jr. and his ex-wife Vanessa, as well as three grandchildren from his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
For his part, Eric Trump took the reins of the Trump Organization when his father became president.
Meanwhile, Lara Trump serves as a campaign advisor for her father-in-law’s 2020 re-election bid and has developed a reputation as one of his staunchest defenders against attacks from the left.
This is undoubtedly an incredibly joyous time for the Trump family as they welcome a new member into the fold, and their delight is certainly shared by tens of millions of Americans across the country.
