President Donald Trump is the proud father of five children: Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron. He also has eight grandchildren. Donald Jr. has five children with wife Vanessa, and Ivanka has three children with husband Jared Kushner.

Now, the word is that one more grandchild will soon be entering the mix, thanks to Eric and his wife Lara. The couple shared the joyous news on social media Monday:
Congratulations began to show up via social media from some family members:
According to People magazine, the pregnancy news was a birthday surprise for 33-year-old Eric:
“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool.”
Lara Trump, 33, who is in her second trimester, shared how she's been doing:
“I was exhausted in the beginning. It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me. It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”
They are working on choosing a name for their son, who will be born in September. A favored name of theirs is already taken, according to Eric:
“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out.”
Lara told People magazine that the couple has been able to get plenty of practice with caring for children with all the babysitting they do for their nieces and nephews. She added that Eric is “the cool uncle” whom she is sure will be a wonderful father.
