President Donald Trump is a grandfather for the ninth time: son Eric, 33, and wife Lara, 34, welcomed their first child, Eric “Luke” Trump on Tuesday.

“.@LaraLeaTrump and I are excited to announce the birth of our son, Eric ‘Luke’ Trump at 8:50 this morning,” the new father tweeted.

Luke Trump joins the President’s brood of grandchildren, which includes son Donald Trump Jr.’s five children with wife, Vanessa, and Ivanka Trump’s three children with her husband, Jared Kushner.

Uncle Donald Trump Jr. offered his congratulations to his younger brother, tweeting, “Congrats buddy. Welcome to the club. Now that the niceties are out of the way it’s older brother revenge for that drum set to my kids.”

And Aunt Ivanka Trump wrote, “Welcome to the world, baby boy. I can’t wait to meet you.”

Just one week ago, Lara Trump was still hitting the gym.

“Hoping the workout inspires this baby to make an appearance!!” she posted alongside a video of her workout.

The North Carolina-born Lara Trump, a former producer at “Inside Edition,” was a frequent presence on the campaign trail. Following maternity leave, Trump will resume her work at the Trump campaign’s digital vendor, Giles-Parscale, as a senior consultant.

Along with her husband, she is involved in strategy for the midterm election and the 2020 campaign more broadly, meeting with Republican National Committee leadership in May and giving a pep talk to RNC staffers over the summer.

Baby Luke Trump joins the family’s multiple rescue dogs.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
