Eric and Wife Lara Trump Welcome Second Child, President Donald Trump's 10th Grandchild
Eric Trump announced the news Monday night on Twitter.
“@LaraLeaTrump and I are excited to welcome Carolina Dorothy Trump into the world,” Eric, 35, tweeted on Monday night. “We love you already!”
Carolina joins big brother Eric “Luke” Trump, 2 next month, and is President Donald Trump‘s 10th grandchild. (Eric’s brother Donald Trump Jr. has five kids with his ex-wife Vanessa, while sister Ivanka Trump has three with husband Jared Kushner.)

Ivanka, 37, tweeted her congratulations to her younger sibling on Tuesday, writing, “We love you Lara, Eric, (big brother) Luke and sweet Carolina!”
Lara, 36, announced she was pregnant in April, sharing a series of photos of the couple with their baby son and the family’s dogs. “Baby number two coming this August!!,” she captioned the sweet snaps. “All of the boys are excited to become big brothers!!”
Eric and Lara wed in 2014 at the Trumps’ Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida after six years of dating.
Eric runs the family’s Trump Organization with older brother Donald Trump Jr. while their father is in the White House. Neither he nor Lara, a former Inside Edition producer, have shied away from the family’s political turn.
Eric makes regular appearances on cable TV and at rallies defending his dad. Lara, now a senior adviser to her father-in-law’s re-election bid, has also regularly appeared at Trump rallies and spoken publicly about the Trump administration’s policies, sometimes drawing criticism which she has claimed was “fake news.”
“Knowing that one day I’ll tell this baby about the adventure overseas and all that happened while in my belly made everything all the more meaningful,” she said.
