Melania Trump and husband Donald have gone from New York socialites to the President and First Lady of the United States. This Christmas it was revealed that Melania Trump left Barron at Mar-a-Lago to spend the holidays at the White House with her husband. Donald Trump has five children with three women, including Barron. They are Ivanka, Donald Jr and Eric, who were born to his first wife Ivana Trump.

Barron is Donald’s youngest child and Melania’s only child.

How do the pair tackle parenting? Donald spoke about parenting on the Larry King show in 2005 quite candidly about his future home life with Melania.

The pair married this year, and Barron was born the next year in March 2016.

The future president told the radio host that he had no doubt about Melania’s mothering style and skills.

He said: “Now, I know Melania, I’m not going to be doing the diapers, I’m not going to be making the food, I may never even see the kids.

“She’ll be an unbelievable mother. I’ll be a good father.”

He also added: “If you have the money, having children is great.”

In 2011 Melania confirmed in an interview that Donald’s hunch about her parenting was correct.

She was interviewed by Sherrina Navani on the Mommy Helper Show, and told the host she spent the most time with Barron.

She also revealed who is the disciplinarian out of the two parents.

“I would say I am because I spend most of the time with him,” she said.

Melania listed her favourite activities to do with her son Barron, who was five-years-old when the interview was filmed.

She said: “I play tennis with him, I play golf, I play on the floor with magnet tiles.

“I like to spend as much time as possible with him because children need your attention, they need to see that you are involved and they really want their mummy there.”

In another interview with in 2012, Melania said: ”I didn’t want (Donald) to change the diapers or put Barron to bed. I love every minute of it.
