President Donald Trump is sending his best wishes to son Eric and daughter-in-law Lara over the news that they’re expecting their second child.

Trump tweeted Wednesday: “CONGRATULATIONS to @EricTrump and @LaraLeaTrump on the great news. So proud!”

Lara Trump posted a photo on Twitter earlier in the day with Eric Trump, their 1½-year-old son, Luke, and their two dogs.

She wrote: “Baby number two coming this August!! All of the boys are excited to become big brothers!!”

It will be the 10th grandchild for the president. His eldest son Donald Trump Jr. has five children with his ex, Vanessa Trump, and daughter Ivanka Trump has three children with husband Jared Kushner.

Baby Luke Trump

Baby Luke Trump, is 18 months old. But fashion moguls everywhere had better beware: this baby knows how to work the camera! Doting parents Lara and Eric Trump have been celebrating their firstborn since his birth in September of 2017, and some of their photo documentation is priceless.

Eric and his wife have been happily married since 2014.

Lara, 36, is an associate producer for television news program “Inside Edition,” but it’s clear to see from her presence on social media that she’s also a hands-on, doting mom. Her son’s journey from tiny baby to bouncing toddler has been lovingly captured on film, and Lara is keen to share the best of the best for all to enjoy.

One particularly attention-grabbing shot shows Luke having the time of his life on a garden slide, while his mom stands guard, laughing joyfully, ready to catch him.

Oh, to be that young and carefree! Luke, enjoy the high jinks.

It would be remiss not to reference the sassy toddler’s resemblance to his world-famous grandfather, however. The general public are not the only ones who have noticed. “He’s a great baby,” Lara told Fox News. “He really does not cry that much, he’s so sweet, and he has a lot of hair.”

“Apparently, he has more hair than most babies.”

My best buddy came to visit me in the office today! #LittleLuke @Trump

And, dare we say, a very particular type of hair, Lara! “The Trump hair,” husband Eric chimed in, and we cannot argue. There’s definitely something rather “presidential” about baby Luke’s blond, unruly barnet. Eric himself even admitted that the idiosyncratic hairdo runs in the Trump family. Eric, too, was born with the Trump signature locks.

“It was bleach blonde,” he shared. “[Luke] takes after me in that way.”

Lara captioned one popular picture, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know we already perfected #BlueSteel,” referencing Ben Stiller’s iconic “model pose” in the comedy classic movie Zoolander.
