Even before he was president, Donald Trump’s five children were in the spotlight.
His three eldest children appeared as judges on Trump’s hit reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” and its spinoff, “Celebrity Apprentice.” His youngest daughter is an Instagram star, and his youngest son has grown up with the flashes of paparazzi cameras.
But who are Donald, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Barron Trump?
Here are a few things you might not know about President Trump’s children.
Donald Trump Jr.
Don is the eldest of Trump’s children and grew up with both his mother, Ivana Trump, and father working long hours, according to a 2004 article in New York Magazine that said Don, Ivanka and Eric spent much of their time with two German nannies and their maternal grandparents.
Don became very close with his maternal grandfather, Milos, spending time his mother’s native country of the Czech Republic, an experience that left him able to speak fluent Czech, New York Magazine reported.
The younger Donald Trump was 12 when his parents divorced, and he didn’t speak to his father for about a year after that, he told New York Magazine, adding that at the time he blamed the divorce on his father.
“And that’s, perhaps, not actually what it was,” he told New York Magazine reporter Jonathan Van Meter. “But when you’re living with your mother, it’s easy to be manipulated. You get a one-sided perspective.”
He attended an exclusive Pennsylvania boarding school before heading to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, his father’s alma mater. He graduated from there with his bachelor of science in finance and real estate, according to the Trump Organization, which features bios of Don and Eric on its website under the heading, “The Next Generation.”
After graduating, he traveled not to New York, but to Colorado, where he worked for a year as a bartender, according to the New York Times.
Don joined the family business in 2001 and now serves as an executive vice president. Among his projects are Trump Tower in Chicago and Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.
On Nov. 12, 2005, Don and Vanessa Haydon were married at his father’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach. According to Palm Beach Daily News reports from the time, the elder Donald Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, officiated the ceremony. Don and Vanessa now have five children: Kai Madison, Donald John III, Tristan Milos, Spencer Frederick and Chloe Sophia.
In addition to his work with the Trump Organization, Don served as a boardroom judge on “The Apprentice” and, more recently, has acted as a prominent surrogate for his father’s campaign and administration.
About a week and half before taking office, President Trump announced Don and his younger brother, Eric, would control a trust into which he would put all of his business holdings, The New York Times reported.
His actions in June of 2016 came under scrutiny recently when The New York Times revealed that he had met with a Russian lawyer who promised him damaging information about his father’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

In response to the reports, Don released the email string that led up to the meeting, the content of which prompted allegations of collusion from some Democrats while the president has defended his son, saying he is “innocent.”
My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2017
The childhood of Donald Trump’s eldest daughter was very much like that of her older brother. At age 15 she was enrolled in an exclusive Connecticut boarding school, after which she followed her father and Don to the Wharton School, according to a 2007 article in Marie Claire. She graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in economics, then again followed Don’s path in spending a year away from the Trump Organization, Marie Claire reported.
But where Don spent some time seemingly off the grid — bartending, hunting, fishing — Ivanka spent the year working for another big-name developer, Bruce Ratner.
Her path to the family business differed from Don’s in another big way: He never modeled. Ivanka took after her mother, a former model, and went toward the runway. She was represented by premier agency Elite Modeling and modeled for big brand names including Tommy Hilfiger, the New York Times reported in 1997.
Notable among her projects for the Trump Organization is the deal she cut for the company to purchase its Doral golf club and resort for what Forbes described as “the almost unbelievable price of $150 million.”
She has written two books, the most recent released in May: “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success.”
Ivanka and developer Jared Kushner were married in 2009 at her father’s Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. With the Kushner family practicing Orthodox Judaism, Ivanka converted and observes the faith with her husband, posting occasionally about the family’s traditions on her social media feeds. Together, Kushner and Ivanka have three children: Arabella Rose, Joseph Frederick and Theodore James.
After serving as campaign advisers, both Ivanka and Jared now play key roles in the Trump administration.
The youngest of Donald Trump’s children with Ivana, Eric attended the same Pennsylvania boarding school as his brother Don, later serving on its board of directors. From there, he went to Georgetown University instead of the University of Pennsylvania, according to the Trump Organization website.
His father described him as “a good kid” in an interview with CBS News in 2003: “He's never had problems. He's never gotten into trouble.”
Like his older brother and sister, Eric grew up with privilege, but still spent time on his father’s job sites. In the 2003 CBS interview, Eric — then 19 years old — said his dream was "definitely to be sitting in the office in Trump Tower learning from my father.”
Now an executive vice president for the Trump Organization, Eric oversees the Trump Golf Collection and manages the Trump Winery in Virginia and Trump International Realty.
In 2006, he launched the Eric Trump Foundation to support the research being done to help terminally ill children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. According to the facility, the foundation has raised millions of dollars over the years. To avoid the appearance of pay-for-play following his father’s election win, Eric announced in December that he would remove his name from and stop raising money for the foundation.
“As unfortunate as it is, I understand the quagmire,” he said in discussing his decision with The New York Times.
He and Lara Yunaska were married on Nov. 8, 2014, at Mar-a-Lago, and they are expecting their first child. Both Eric and Lara have been outspoken supporters of President Trump, with Yunaska working on Donald Trump’s social media during the campaign, and Eric appearing as a surrogate on cable news.
At their home in New York, Tiffany became friends with Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford’s daughter, Cassidy, a friendship mentioned frequently in society reports from the time.
After her parents’ divorce in 1999, Maples moved Tiffany and herself to California. Tiffany returned for the occasional visit to Palm Beach, and was oft-pictured in the society pages of The Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Daily News with her mother and celebrities including Celine Dion and Tony Bennett.
Before heading to college, Tiffany seemed to dip her toe into the waters of pop-stardom, recording a song titled “Like a Bird.”
According to People, she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015 with a double-major in sociology and urban studies. While there, she interned with powerhouse fashion magazine Vogue.
Earlier this year, TIME reported that Tiffany plans to attend law school at Georgetown University — effectively splitting the difference between her elder siblings’ alma maters.
The youngest of President Trump’s children — and his only child with first lady Melania Trump — Barron Trump is the first boy to live in the White House since the Kennedy administration.
Born in 2006, Barron was christened at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, the same church where his parents were married, and where they have attended the occasional church service.
In a 2013 interview with ABC News, Melania Trump said she used her Caviar Complex C6 lotion on Barron every night, adding, “He likes it!” In the past, she has said she calls Barron “little Donald” and “mini-Donald.” Barron also has his own floor in his parents’ Trump Tower residence, Melania told Parenting Magazine.
Growing up, Barron was seen in New York and Palm Beach society papers, and he appeared in a 2014 episode of “Celebrity Apprentice.” However, during his father’s campaign his mother told ABC News that she was keeping him out of the spotlight to give him “a childhood as normal as possible.”
Following his father’s election, Barron and the first lady lived in Trump Tower until Barron finished his school year. They have since moved to the White House, and Barron will attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Maryland in the fall, the Trump administration confirmed earlier this summer.
