Proud Parents: Eric Trump And His Wife Lara Welcome Their First Child

E! Online

The First Family was already pretty big, but President Trump will definitely have his hands full after the birth of his 9th grandchild.

While he doesn't make as many headlines as his famous dad, Donald Trump's 2nd son and 3rd child Eric is a successful businessman - like father like son! The vice-president of the Trump Organization, Eric has attracted attention for his charitable donations and his love of hunting.

His wife Lara Yunaska is a former personal trainer and producer for Inside Edition, who's famous for her love of animals. The couple earned praise earlier this year when they adopted rescue dog Ben the Beagle and moved him into the White House. They tied the knot in 2014 at Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago resort in Florida.

Earlier this year the couple shared some exciting news on Twitter, revealing they were expecting a baby boy - their first child. Eric reportedly learned the news on the night of his 33rd birthday in January.

While Lara revealed she had a rough first trimester, the mom-to-be was "feeling really good" by the time Eric broke the news in March. Now, the couple have welcomed their son into the world. But the name they picked is raising some eyebrows.

The couple originally hinted they wanted to name their son "Charlie," but since one of their dogs already had that name they went in a different direction.

The newest member of the Trump dynasty is named Eric "Luke" Trump, so while he's an Eric Jr., it seems like the family will mostly be calling him Luke to avoid confusion.  Eric's siblings have already congratulated the news parents and shared their reactions to the news.

Luke is Donald Trump's 9th grandchild so far. His older son Donald Jr. has five children with his wife, model Vanessa Haydon. They have three sons, Tristan, Spencer and Donald Trump III, and two daughters, Kai and Chloe.

Meanwhile, President Trump's daughter Ivanka has 3 children with her husband, real-estate developer Jared Kushner. She has a daughter named Arabella and two sons, Joseph and Theodore.
