The Trumps are moving from the real-estate boom to the celebrity baby boom.
“Celebrity Apprentice” star, real-estate executive and jewelry mogul Ivanka Trump announced Friday (January 21) that she’s expecting a little one with her husband, New York newspaper publisher Jared Kushner.
“I have been wanting to share some amazing news with you all for some time … I’m pregnant!” Trump tweeted. “Jared and I couldn’t be more excited.” When a well-wisher doled out some e-congrats, Trump responded, “Thank you! We are beyond excited!”
The glamorous Gotham couple got hitched in October 2009 in an elaborate ceremony at, of course, the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, surrounded by 500 guests, according to People. Among the headline-making pals in attendance were Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin.
Just before the 2009 nuptials, Trump insisted she wasn’t ready to become a parent due to her and her then-soon-to-be hubby’s demanding careers but maintained to People, “When our time to have a family comes around, I know I will compromise.”
The time has come for compromise, and Trump has also dropped a few hints about how she plans to approach motherhood, citing her enterprising parents as an inspiration.
“My parents have both led nontraditional lifestyles — but they have extremely traditional relationships with their children,” Trump wrote in her book “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.” “They might have taken me to boxing matches or trips around the world but at the end of the day they were always my parents, not my best friends.”
Send your congratulations for the family in the comments!
