Barron Trump will grow up in front of America as his father leads the nation. However, Barron is the least known of the Trump children. Four of Donald Trump’s children played prominent roles during his campaign for president, but one child remained out of the spotlight. Barron is the only child from Donald and Melania’s current marriage. He will remain with his mother in New York City for the remainder of the school year before moving to the White House.
While he made brief appearances on the campaign trail and during his father’s acceptance speech, the family has tried to shield their 10-year-old son from the spotlight. Melania has admitted there are similarities between Barron and Donald. Like his father, he enjoys the finer things in life. Barron was the only Trump child not to speak at the Republican National Convention.
Get to know the youngest Trump family member.
1. Barron Is the Only Son Donald & Melania Have Together
Donald has four children from his previous marriages, but only has one child through his current marriage. Given Donald’s travel schedule, Melania has admitted that she is with Barron most of the time. This is especially true now that his father is president.
Melania spoke to US Weekly on how their son felt about his father becoming a politician. “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.
2. He Is 10 Years Old
There is a 24 year age difference between Donald and Melania. Donald is 70 while Melania is 46. It is Donald’s third marriage which helps account for the wide range of ages among his children. His oldest son, Donald Jr., is 38 years old. There is a 28-year difference between Barron and Donald Jr.
Tiffany is the closest to him in age at 22 years old. Barron is closer in age to his eight nephews and nieces than his own siblings.
3. Barron Has 4 Brothers & Sisters
While Barron does not have any siblings through both his parents, he does have two brothers and two sisters through his father’s previous marriages. His two brothers, Donald Jr., and oldest sister, Ivanka, both came from Donald’s first marriage with Ivana Trump.
Barron’s youngest sister, Tiffany, came from Donald’s second marriage to Marla Maples. Tiffany and Barron are the only Trump children not involved with the Trump Organization which makes sense given their age. Tiffany just graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.
4. His Nickname Is “Little Donald”
There may be another Donald Trump in the future. Melania has said on several occasions that there are a lot of similarities between her son and husband. She even refers to him as “Little Donald”. She described Barron to Parenting.com.
“He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy. He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him little Donald. He is a mixture of us in looks, but his personality is why I call him ‘Little Donald,'” Melania told Parenting.com.
5. Barron Prefers Suits Over Sweatpants
Barron may be young, but he has exquisite tastes. Like any successful business person, Barron’s father knows that all the big deals are negotiated on the golf course. The two go golfing together when Donald’s schedule permits.
Melania has noted that she handles most of the day to day aspects of parenting, while her husband looks to spend time with Barron when they can. It has not gone unnoticed by Donald. He opened a recent Wisconsin rally by praising his wife’s parenting skills.
