Ivanka Trump Gives Birth to a Baby Boy

Donald Trump victory speech

Ivanka Trump, 31, gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday—her second with husband and New York Observer owner Jared Kushner. “We just welcomed a beautiful & healthy son into the world. Jared, Arabella and I couldn’t be happier!” the “Celebrity Apprentice” boardroom judge and real estate and fashion mogul tweeted to her fans earlier this week. The new baby, whose name hasn’t been revealed quite yet, joins the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Arabella. Ivanka and Jared have been married for four years.

Ivanka and Jared found out the gender of their new baby months ago, but kept it a secret for one surprising reason: control. Ivanka Trump told Fit Pregnancy magazine that her superstitions, as well as her longing for control over at least one aspect of motherhood, helped her keep the gender a secret. “There are so many variables in motherhood that, those I can control, I like to,” she said. Keeping news like that from the media is a pretty impressive feat—especially when your father is Donald Trump!


Impatience seems to be a trait she passed down to her first child. Ivanka told People that Arabella was “excited and borderline impatient” about the arrival of her new sibling. “I started talking about it around six to seven months and she hasn’t waited that long for anything in her life,” Ivanka said.

Finding out the gender of your baby is a special moment for every mom. When your family spends time in the media spotlight, keeping that moment a secret for as long as possible must make it even more special!
