What Will Ivanka Trump Name Her Baby? She Welcomed Her Third Child on Sunday
Businesswoman Ivanka Trump announced the birth of her third child on Sunday. She and husband Jared Kushner welcomed a baby boy Sunday afternoon, sharing the announcement on Twitter soon after. So what will Ivanka Trump name her baby?
Trump and Kushner decided on the adorable, yet traditional moniker of Theodore James Kushner. The couple already have two children under their wing (both with equally cute names): Arabella Rose, 4, and Joseph Frederick, 2. When she talked to People about baby names in November, she said, "It’s hard, because I have a girl and a boy, so I went through the drills. I’m dusting off my old lists."
Other than her brief birth (and name!) announcement on Twitter, Trump has yet to speak out on their newest family member. However, when she announced her pregnancy back in September, Trump wrote on her blog: "I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have a career that I am deeply passionate about, but, at the end of the day, it’s my family that is at the center of my life — and to be adding another baby to our family is a tremendous blessing. Jared and I are so thankful, and so excited!"
Before giving birth to little Theodore James, Trump had been joining her father, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, on the campaign trail. According to Refinery29, she supported his campaign in Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire fairly late into her pregnancy. She has also been continuing in her role as executive vice president of acquisitions and development at the Trump Organization, and she runs both the Ivanka Trump Collection and a career and lifestyle website for working women.
Trump will likely take some time away from her work — and her father's campaigning — to adjust to life with three young children under the age of five. "I have such special bonds with Arabella and Joseph," she told The Tot, while she was still pregnant with Theodore. "Naturally, I worried about this when Joseph was born as well, and I know I’ll learn to navigate this again with the new baby."
Congratulations to the family of five! I'm sure Arabella and Joseph will be more than happy to help out with their new baby brother. And for the next little while, the world will just patiently wait for pictures of Theodore James Kushner. (I'm sure he's just as cute as his name is!)
