Jr Trump will be first boy of US after decades



It's the end of an era in America, and we stand at the beginning of something new: the Obamas are departing the White House, making way for Donald Trump and his equally famous family.

While most of the Trump children have become well-known to the public over the years, Barron remains a family outlier. The 10-year old son of the President-Elect first captivated the eyes of the world late on Election Night when he stood behind his father on the stage while victory was accepted. Barron, of course, looked more sleepy than jubilant on stage, which inadvertently won over the cold hearts of an America that was mostly happy the election cycle was finally over. Who is this young Simba-like figure? It's time we get familiar with America's new boy-prince, Barron Trump.

One thing about the incoming First Family to take note of is that it has a little bit more sprawl than the last one, owing to Donald Trump's multiple children by three wives. Barron Trump, the youngest of the clan, is but one branch of a family tree that includes Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr., born to Donald's first wife, Ivana Trump; and daughter Tiffany, born to Donald's second wife, Marla Maples.

As for Barron, he's the only child of Donald and Melania Knauss Trump, and was born on March 20, 2006. He lives with the couple in their Trump Tower penthouse on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Donald and Melania were married about a year prior to Barron's birth, in January 2005.


 He's not moving to the White House right away

When Trump's inauguration was set for noon on January 20, 2017, it was unlikely that Barron will join his famous father in the White House. According to the New York Post, Barron will remain in Manhattan, where he is reportedly attending the prestigious and very-expensive Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, with his mother until the school year ends. "There's obviously a sensitivity to pulling their 10-year-old out of school in the middle of the school year. A more formal statement will be coming in the future," a spokesperson for Trump told reporters in November 2016.

Trump himself confirmed the rumors that month, telling reporters that his son will be moving to D.C. "right after he finishes school."

Once he actually makes it to the Washington, little Barron will officially become the first boy to grace the halls of the White House in almost 60 years. Yep, the last time America had a "First Boy" was all the way back in 1961, when John F. Kennedy's son, JFK Jr., moved into the White House when he was just a baby,
