Meet Donald Trump’s offspring one-by-one, from the oldest down to the youngest one:
1. Donald Trump’s First Son – Donald Trump Jr.
Donald John “Don” Trump Jr. was born in Manhattan, New York City, on December 31, 1977 (age 39). This successful American businessman is the first child of U.S. best standing real estate developer and current Republican Party presidential nominee Donald John Trump Sr. and Czech model Ivana Trump. Ivana became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1988, with Trump at her side. He presently works in a joint effort with his sister Ivanka Trump and his junior brother Eric Trump in the position of Executive Vice President at The Trump Organization.
The very first Trump successor was educated at The Hill School, a university-preparatory boarding school in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, followed by the University of Pennsylvania, where he gained a B.S. degree.
The eldest of the Donald Trump’s three boys is grateful to be a Trump. Although he was on the cusp of adolescence when his mother Ivana and father Donald divorced amidst a downpour of media gossip, Donald Jr. (below pictured with his Dad in 1988) cannot come to terms with how rich-born kids might not like their biological parents. He told the New York Magazine that their parents gave them anything they could have ever wanted in the world!
Ivana Trump, the founding member of the First Wives Club, was born in Czechoslovakia, Europe, and Donald Jr. has said that he is fluent in his mother tongue thanks in part to a close relationship to his maternal grandfather, Milosh, who lived with the family for part of Donny’s tender age, and thought him how to speak Czech.
“The Donald”(a nickname perpetuated by the media after his first wife Ivana referred to him as such in a 1989 Spy magazine cover story) introduced his first-born son to his future wife while at a fashion show with him. The elder Donald spotted a good-looking young model on the catwalk and in pretty much ‘the most embarrassing dad’s move,’ decided to play a matchmaker. He dragged his son backstage and introduced him to the woman, and then the three of them engaged in a brief conversation, according to the New York Times.
Then, as if things couldn’t get more awkward for the shy Don, during a subsequent break in the show, Donald Sr. spotted the woman again, but not recognizing her as the person he had just met, went on to introduce her to his son a second time! Then, ‘per the love-at-first-sight formula,’ this initial confusion and embarrassment led to true love and marriage, and now Don and the twice-introduced Vanessa.
It seems that Trump’s offspring, in fact, might be contractually ‘obligated’ to get married at Mar-a-Lago resort. Don Jr. and Eric too [later on] both tied the knot at Trump Sr.’s sprawling “Sea-to-Lake” estate/club/family wedding venue in Palm Beach, Florida. On November 12, 2005, Don married former model Vanessa Haydon (see the pic below) in a lavish wedding at the estate, which is even equipped with 3 bomb shelters. The service was officiated by Trump’s aunt, Maryanne Trump Barry. Vanessa Haydon is an alumna of the Dwight School and studied psychology at New York’s Marymount Manhattan College.
Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa are prolific parents like Don’s parents themselves – together they have 5 children to take care of: daughters Kai Madison (born 2007) and Chloe Sophia (born 2014) and sons Donald John III (born 2009), Tristan Milos (born 2011), and Spencer Frederick (born 2012).
Donald Trump Jr. has 2 younger full siblings, Ivanka and Eric. He also has 2 half-siblings: Tiffany from his father’s marriage to Marla Maples, and Barron from his father’s current marriage to Melania Knauss-Trump.
2. Donald Trump’s First Daughter – Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Marie Trump was born in Manhattan, New York City, on October 30, 1981 (age 34). She is an American businesswoman, writer, and former model. In her position as Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at the Trump Organization, Trump is involved with all aspects of the company’s real estate and hotel management initiatives. Simply enjoying in her celebrity status, she also launched her own lifestyle brand, IvankaTrump.com.
Trump attended the Chapin School in New York until age 15, then transferred to and graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut. She spent two years at Georgetown University, then transferred to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania (her father’s alma mater), graduating cum laude in 2004 with a B.S. in economics.
Before joining the family business, Trump briefly worked for Forest City Enterprises. In 2007, literally relishing in her celebrity status, she joined forces with Dynamic Diamond Corp., a diamond trading company sight holder, to design and introduce a line of jewelry at the brand’s first flagship retail store called Ivanka Trump on Madison Avenue.
On the work drive among her and her siblings, she has stated that she looks at her brothers and herself and she is really proud of the fact that nobody is a drug addict and nobody is driving around chasing women or snorting coke. This is certainly more than you can say about so many spoilt celebrity brats, you will agree!
She has also released her own line of accessories, handbags and footwear that is. Trump serves on the Board of 100 Women in Hedge Funds, an industry organization which provides support to women professionals in finance.
Ivanka Trump’s Modeling Career
Trump’s first cover was a 1997 issue of Seventeen. Since then, she has made her way down fashion runways for Versace, Marc Bouwer and Thierry Mugler. She has done advertisement campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger and Vidal Sassoon jeans, and was featured on the cover of Stuff in August 2006, and then again in September 2007.
She has been featured on the covers of Forbes, Golf Magazine, Avenue, Elle Mexico, Top Choice Magazine and in the October 2007 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She has also featured a number of times in Love FMD magazine.
She placed Number 83 in the 2007 Maxim Hot 100. She has also placed Number 99 in the Top 99 Women of 2007, and then at 84 in the 2008 edition on AskMen.com. Trump’s page in the Fashion Model Directory provides complete professional details of her prior work in this domain.
Notably, Ivanka Trump was voted Top Choice Awards Businesswoman of the Year in 2012.
Ivanka Trump’s Television Appearances
In 2006, Ivanka filled in for Carolyn Kepcher on 5 episodes of her father’s famous television program The Apprentice 5, first appearing to help judge the Gillette task in week 2. Just like Kepcher, Trump visited the site of the tasks and spoke to the teams, asking them pointed questions. She also evaluated contestants in the boardroom, pointing out critical errors and rebutting excuses they offered for losing the tasks.
Though initially not showing empathy to the contestants, Trump later said that whenever she saw their breakdowns, she was full of understanding. They go virtually 24 hours a day, and each task takes about 3 days. Unless they win, they don’t get a day off… It’s an incredible amount of work… Trump now collaborates with Season 5 winner Sean Yazbeck on his winner’s project of choice, Trump SoHo Hotel-Condominium.
Ivanka Trump replaced Carolyn Kepcher as a primary boardroom judge during the Apprentice 6 and The Celebrity Apprentice.
Ivanka Trump’s Other TV appearances
In 1997, she hosted the Miss Teen USA Pageant, which is partially owned by her father, Donald Trump. In 2003, she was featured in Born Rich, a documentary about the experience of growing up as a child in one of the world’s most affluent families. While making an April-2006 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jay Leno commented that he could hear her father’s influence and inflections in her.
David Letterman also made a similar comment when she appeared on Late Show with David Letterman on April 24, 2007. So, the daughter really takes after her father!
Trump was a featured guest-judge on Project Runway Season 3. She was also at a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, event in April 2007 called the Creating Wealth Summit in which she spoke for about 30 minutes about making money and her latest projects. She has been offered to appear on The Bachelorette, but she declined. On October 25, 2010, Trump joined by her husband, Jared Kushner, showed up on Season 4 Episode 6 of Gossip Girl portraying themselves for a brief time.
Ivanka Trump’s Intimate Affairs
While at college, she was in a nearly 4-year relationship with Greg Hirsch. From 2001 to 2005, she dated James “Bingo” Gubelmann. In 2006, she said in an interview that if you want to enter a serious relationship, she thinks it is very important that your special someone has his finances under control. Otherwise, she continued, you cannot even contemplate a future with him!
In 2007, attractive Ivanka Trump started dating the Orthodox Jewish realtor Jared Kushner. The Trumps are Catholic. However, she converted into Kushner’s Judaism religion in July 2009 and took the name Yael. The couple took the plunge a few months later in a Jewish ceremony on October 25, 2009.
The groom’s father, Charles Kushner, not only referenced the Holocaust in his speech, but at this golf club of Trump‘s in Bedminster, NJ, a special caterer met the family’s religious dietary requirements. And the bride will observe Kosher. Whether for warmth since the evening was nippy, or for decorum to cover exposed arms and shoulders in keeping with respectful tradition, ladies received shawls upon arrival.
Bridesmaids such as Vanessa Trump, wife of Ivanka’s brother Donny, and half-sister Tiffany Trump, daughter of daddy Donald’s marital union with Marla Maples, wore dusty lavender. Mothers of the bride and groom both wore peach. Melania, Donald’s current wife, did low-cut strapless purple satin. Her mother wore a one-shouldered black gown. Black, which the older generation never wore to weddings, was everywhere. Donald Trump’s brother Robert, locked in a lifetime divorce from his lifelong wife Blaine, brought his live-in girlfriend. She, too, was in black. What a festive family reunion!
The orchestra played “Hava Nagila.” Donald and Melania’s adorable little Barron Trump was ring bearer and unsure of his duties, so Mommy had to rescue him. Since nobody knows what to buy a couple who has everybody, donations were suggested to three Jewish charities. And it was lots of impersonal gifts like albums.
Ivanka and Jared produced 3 children of their own: daughter Arabella Rose Kushner (born July 2011) and sons Joseph Frederick Kushner (born October 2013) and Theodore James Kushner (born March 27, 2016).
Ivanka is a close friend of Chelsea Clinton, who says of her that there’s nothing skin-deep about Ivanka. And she thinks that’s a real tribute to her because certainly anyone as gorgeous as she is could have probably gone quite far being skin-deep.”
Ivanka subsidizes her father – the real estate mogul Donald Trump’s – in all of his forceful political and social endeavors alike heretofore. Her close family tie with her father, who has publicly expressed his admiration for her assertiveness, has been well covered by the media. Ivanka too has praised her father, complimenting his leadership skills and saying he empowers other people.
In 2007, Trump made a donation of $1,000 to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. In 2012, Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president. In 2013, Trump and her husband hosted a fundraiser for Cory Booker. The couple bundled more than $40,000 for Booker’s U.S. Senate campaign.
Last 2015, Trump publicly endorsed her father’s presidential campaign. Trump has been involved with her father’s Donald Trump campaign by making public appearances in support of him and has defended him against his fierce opponents.
3. Donald Trump’s Second Son – Eric Trump
Eric Frederick Trump was born in Manhattan, New York City, on January 6, 1984 (age 32). He is an American businessman and philanthropist. He is the executive vice president, development and acquisitions, of The Trump Organization, and directs all new project acquisition and development throughout the world, with his brother, Donald, Jr. and sister, Ivanka. In 2006, he founded the Eric Trump Foundation, which raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He is also the owner of Trump Winery.
Eric Trump attended Trinity School. His parents divorced in 1991, when he was at the age of 7. Eric, youngest son of Ivana born, broke family tradition: instead of attending the University of Pennsylvania, like his father, brother, and sister before him, Eric (above left) attended Georgetown, a vocational school in Washington D.C.
Eric graduated from The Hill School in 2002and subsequently served on its board, until 2013. He joined The Trump Organization in 2006, after graduating with a degree in finance and management, with honors, from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
In 2014, Eric tied the knot with the television producer Lara Yunaska. Notably, Yunaska broke her wrists in a horse riding accident 2 weeks before her nuptials and wore fancy bridal casts on both wrists.
When Lara she walked down the aisle with Eric Trump last weekend, she married into the high-profile family. The 31-year-old newlywed posted a photo on Instagram on 12 November 2014 of the fancy affair, showing her and Eric striking a pose with all of their parents – her own mom and dad, as well as Donald with ex-wife Ivana (Eric’s mother) and his current wife Melania. Apart from gaining three parents-in-law, Lara also acquired a whole slew of siblings-in-law: Eric’s brother and sister Donald Jr and Ivanka, as well as his half-siblings Tiffany and Barron.
In business terms, handsome Eric is already a go-getter at wine: Ever since launching Trump Winery in Virginia in 2011, Eric has been racking up awards including the 2013 Rising Star of the Year award from Wine Enthusiast. Of course, in the Trump family you’re not really doing something unless you’re winning at it, or are at least able to use the word winning in a sentence about it. On the occasion, he told Wine Enthusiast he was thrilled by their tremendous success and the fact that they are not only competing, but indeed they are winning against the finest wines produced anywhere in the world.
4. Donald Trump’s Second Daughter – Tiffany Trump
Tiffany Trump was born in New York City on October 13, 1993 (age 22). She is the only daughter to Donald Trump and, the actress and beauty pageant winner, Marla Maples. By the early 1990s, Trump’s troubled marriage to Ivana and long-running affair with actress Marla Maples had become fodder for the tabloid press.
Although she was born in the Big Apple- New York City, Tiffany grew up with her mother in California. Her mother, Marla, says that she has raised her daughter as a single parent. Tiffany is passionate about music and is considering a career in that field. Even though she is very close with her mother, Tiffany is an active supporter of her father Donald and his 2016 campaign for the President of the United States of America.
With regards of her young adolescent age, Tiffany is best known for just being the daughter to Donald Trump and Marla Maples. But she certainly is up and coming like the rest of Trump’s broods!Tiffany graduated from the Ivy League School the University of Pennsylvania, and has been seen at tapings of DWTS while her mother Marla was a contestant on the show. She has actively supported her father’s run for presidency and has made appearances with him on TV endorsing him as the best candidate ever.
Taking time away from the busy campaign trail, Donald Trump attended his youngest daughter, Tiffany’s, graduation from University of Pennsylvania. But he wasn’t the only Trump in attendance! Tiffany walked across the stage with her entire family in the audience — and she looked fabulous doing it, didn’t she?
Tiffany certainly seemed to enjoy her special day and there’s no question she was also perfectly styling as she sported a super fierce pair of flats designed by her older half-sister, Ivanka Trump.
5. Donald Trump’s Youngest Son – Barron Trump
Barron William Trump, the youngest hair to the Trump Empire, has a whole floor to himself. While most of us grew up wishing for our own smart phone devices, what we should have been asking for is our own living room. Well, Barron occupies a whole floor in the Trump Penthouse, and his mother refers to it as “Barron’s living room!” What does a 9-year-old do with his very personal floor-sized living room? Well, probably it just his playground when it rains outside…
The youngest Trump may only be nine, but he already prefers modern aesthetic. He’s already developing the exacting standards that are his heritage. While young Barron likes model helicopters and toy cars, he absolutely will not stand for having them on his bedspread, preferring, ‘clean and white,’ as mom Melania tells.
Cute Barron moisturizes his skin with caviar! Cetaphil shall not touch the gentle skin of a Trump heir. In a move that’s a little bit sweet and a little bit Mommy Dearest, mom Melania slathers son Barron from head to toe in her Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer every night after his bathing pleasure.
Just To Note…
Interestingly enough, Donald Trump deemed that, statistically, his children have a very bad shot, and told this to Playboy in 1990. His observation that the children of successful people are generally very, very troubled, not successful, which leaves his posterity without the ‘right shtick,’ obviously proved to be completely wrong!
DONALD TRUMP’S FAMILY TREE AND SUCCESS GO ON AND ON…
Three out of five gorgeous Trump’s children work for dad’s business (the other two are undoubtedly up and coming as you read this), but except for the middle daughter Ivanka, who is widely known to be dad’s favorite, they mostly stay out of the limelight for the time being.
