Lara and Eric Trump celebrate baby shower with close friends, family

June 23, 2019

With their second child on the way, Eric and Lara Trump recently celebrated by hosting a jungle-themed baby shower for family and friends.

In one stunning photo from the event, Fox News anchor Jeannine Pirro posed next to the president’s daughter-in-law and playfully compared belly sizes with the expectant mother.

Baby on board

Lara Trump wore a white floral maternity dress and was all smiles as she posed with Pirro, who has been friends with the Trump family for decades. The former judge and prosecutor wore a colorful floral dress of her own, and is pictured leaning back to touch stomachs with her host.

Pirro’s photo is one of the few public images from the baby shower, which was limited to a small gathering for intimate friends and family. Besides Eric Trump and his mother, Ivana, no other members of the First Family were present to celebrate Lara’s impending delivery.

Based on other photos of the shower, which Lara Trump shared on her Instagram page, the event appeared to be jungle or tropical-themed, with animal print treats, balloons, and palm-leaf decor.

New addition

Eric and Lara Trump first revealed her baby bump on Easter weekend, when they appeared together with their other child, Luke, and two family dogs. The couple read their son a book about being a big brother after announcing the new addition to the family.

“BIG NEWS: Luke (& Charlie & Ben) can’t wait to become big brothers this August!!” Lara wrote on Instagram. “We’re all very excited to add one more to our family!”

“So excited for you both as your sweet family grows,” Eric’s older sister Ivanka commented on the social media upload.

Stepping out

Lara wore a glamorous, flowing maternity gown to the president’s official state visit to Buckingham Palace.

The president’s daughter-in-law, who serves as a Trump 2020 senior campaign advisor, publicly insisted that all of the president’s adult children who were not part of his administration paid their own way during the U.K. trip.

Eric and Lara tied the knot in 2014. Three years later, they welcomed their first child into the family.

Lara is due sometime in mid-August. The baby will be President Trump’s 10th grandchild.
