Eric and Lara are expecting a little boy in September

Lara is already in her second trimester and "feeling great." "I was exhausted in the beginning," Lara admitted to the publication. "It surprised me, because I'm a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn't believe it would actually happen to me." She continued: "It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now." Lara and Eric, whose mother is Ivana Trump, tied the knot after six years of dating in 2014 at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. Lara admitted that she is not nervous at becoming a first-time mum. "I knew I always wanted kids someday," she said, adding, "Eric's going to be an amazing dad." The pair have had plenty of practice with Eric's eight nieces and nephews (Don Jr. shares five children with his wife Vanessa and Ivanka has three with husband Jared Kushner).

Lara confessed that her husband has plenty of cool uncle points. "The nieces and nephews love hanging with him," she shared. "He's the cool uncle. He's watched Frozen many times." When it comes to naming their little boy, the couple are still working on a moniker. "We really loved the name Charlie," Eric said. "But we'd already named our dog that, so it's out." The couple's baby will be the ninth grandchild for President Trump, who is excited about the family's impending bundle of joy. "Eric’s dad was so excited," Lara said. "We were worried he'd blurt it out at a press conference." First Lady Melania Trump's husband tweeted his congratulations to the couple on March 20. The president wrote, "Congratulations Eric & Lara. Very proud and happy for the two of you!" Ivanka also took to social media tweeting, "Congratulations @LaraLeaTrump & @EricTrump! We're so excited for you both. You'll be incredible parents & we cant wait to meet our nephew!"
