Donald Trump’s son Eric and his wife Lara have announced the birth of their baby son.

34-year-old Lara shared a photo of her new arrival on Instagram and revealed his name.


Following in the Trump tradition, the little boy was named after his father Eric but the couple have decided to go by his middle name Luke.


“Happy birthday Luke”, the new mum gushed. “We are so proud and blessed to be your parents”.


Proud dad Eric followed up with a snap of his own of the newborn swaddled up fast asleep, writing: “Little Luke”.



Happy birthday, Luke! We are so blessed and proud to be your parents!!
