Since moving into the White House, Melania Trump has tried to keep her young son Barron out of the spotlight as much as possible. That’s why it came as a surprise when her special nickname for him was revealed, as well as the reason behind it.
Cheat Sheet reported that Melania affectionately calls Barron “Little Donald” because of all the similarities he has to his father, President Donald Trump!
“He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy,” Melania once said of Barron. “He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him ‘Little Donald.’”
One of the main similarities he has to his dad is that he is more comfortable in a suit than in any other type of clothing.
“He’s not a sweatpants child,” Melania said of Barron in 2013. “He doesn’t mind putting on [a suit] — but not every day — and he likes to dress up in a tie sometimes like [his] daddy.”
Barron has also expressed an interest in building towers from an early age, just like his dad did. Melania has said that when Barron was just 6 years-old, he could play by himself with his building blocks for hours at a time. Perhaps he will follow in his father’s footsteps and become a real estate mogul someday!
Like his father, Barron has already developed a love for the game of golf.
“We spend a lot of time in Mar-a-Lago,” Melania said. “There they play golf, spend time together, eat dinner together, and we enjoy family time. It is always a really special time.”
With all the media scrutiny his family gets, it can’t be easy for Barron to grow up in the White House. We can’t wait to watch him continue grow up and see if he follows in his father’s footsteps as an adult!
