Donald Trump is expecting his second child, a baby girl, according to multiple reports, after being rushed to a hospital early Saturday morning.
The baby girl was born at 10:30am ET and the infant is expected to be named Donald Jr. Trump tweeted about the birth, writing, “My daughter, Ivanka, is pregnant.
Thank you all for your prayers and support.
She is doing so well.”
Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump told The New York Times that she was given a “very encouraging news” early Saturday.
“It was just amazing,” she told the newspaper.
“She is doing very well,” Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner told the Associated Press.
Trump’s son, Eric Trump, told Fox News, “We were so excited to get the news and the news is that Ivanka and I are having a baby.
The news was that we had a baby.”
The baby, whom Trump did not name, was named after Ivanka, who Trump had met at a beauty pageant in 2013.
The New York Post reported that the baby was delivered by C-section, with Trump’s wife, Melania, attending the birth and her daughter, Tiffany, and their husband, Donald Jr., attending the hospital delivery.
The Post reported a source close to Ivanka said, “The baby was born and it’s a very exciting day for Ivanka and Ivanka is pregnant and she is going to be having a very big baby.”
Donald Jr. tweeted, “Congratulations to Ivanka Trump on her pregnancy and birth.”
The Trump Organization released a statement to the Associated New York News, which quoted the president as saying, “I was given this very encouraging news that Ivanka is having a little girl.
We were thrilled to have this news and to be able to share it with the world.
We will be giving more details when they are finalized.”

Trump and his family had previously said that the couple was expecting a baby boy, which was confirmed Saturday.
Ivanka, a longtime friend of Trump’s, has been seen wearing a necklace bearing her father’s initials, and the couple has previously been seen together at the wedding of their son, Barron, to Trump’s daughter, Arabella.
Trump has not been seen in public since late January, but his daughter Ivanka has been spotted at events with the president.
Ivanka was reportedly seen with the first lady at Trump’s inauguration and the two spoke in the Rose Garden following the first debate.
In February, Ivanka told CNN that she had not seen her father since Trump’s election, and she had been “overwhelmed by the outpouring of love” from people who had donated to her family’s cause.
“I am so grateful to have such a huge amount of support,” Ivanka told the news network.
“There is a lot of love in this country and I’m honored and excited to be part of it.”
