Ivanka and her husband, businessman Jared Kushner, are gearing up for another addition to the family — and she had fun announcing her baby news by filming a short video with her two kids, 4-year-old Arabella and 23-month-old Joseph:
Trump wrote on her website that the kids are excited for a sibling, however she did have to resort to a little bribery to get Joseph to cooperate with the video.
“Arabella and Joseph are both incredibly excited to have a new sibling on the way (of course, Arabella desperately wants a baby girl, and Joseph hopes it’s a boy!), and I wanted them to join me in making the announcement,” she wrote. “Arabella is a ham and was totally camera-ready, but I had to resort to bribery to get Joseph to cooperate. I usually try to feed my kids healthy food, but I gave Joseph his first lollipop ever in exchange for his best behavior. It’s the mommy trick we all say we’ll never do, but when you have multiple children, it’s pretty hard to be above it — it just works too well!!”
She shared on her website a cute outtake of the video in which Joseph was totally doing his own thing, as toddlers often do, and wanted no part of the video. “We wound up having such a fun time in the five hilarious minutes that we were filming, that I had to share the moments that didn’t make the cut,” she wrote.
So adorable — and we can totally relate!
Her father, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, took to Twitter to express his excitement over his new grandbaby — and revealed her due date.
So happy about my daughter @IvankaTrump’s announcement that she will be having a baby this spring. Congratulations!

No word on the gender of the baby; however it sounds like a spring baby for the couple. Congrulations to Ivanka and Jared!
