Lara Trump talks Melania and Ivanka Trump's style, plus being a member of America's first family

Lara Trump is an admirer of her sister-in-law Ivanka and First Lady Melania Trump’s style. The wife of President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, opened up in a new interview with HOLA!’s sister brand HELLO! about her fashionable in-laws and being a part of America’s first family. "I certainly try to look my best. I think our First Lady, Melania, and my sister-in-law Ivanka have impeccable style,” Lara said. “I look to many different women for inspiration but try to make things my own. Each woman is unique and we look our best when we feel confident and comfortable in our own skin."

The 33-year-old, who recently announced that she is expecting her first child — a son — with her husband Eric, married into the Trump family back in 2014. The mom-to-be admitted that last year’s brutal presidential campaign strengthened their family. She said, “Obviously the past two years were not all easy for our family. We took a lot of hits and continue to, but overall this has made us closer and stronger."


Since her father-in-law became president, Lara has adjusted to her family’s new status and the security that comes with it. She revealed, ”Eric and I lead a pretty normal life. Our favorite place to be is our home outside of New York City. It’s quiet and relaxing – just the two of us and our dogs. The Secret Service is made up of absolutely wonderful people. We couldn’t ask for more patriotic, selfless people to be around us."

During her interview, Lara also discussed her famous father-in-law, whom she thinks will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents. “I think that, ultimately, my father-in-law will change the United States for the better, restore pride to our country and go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents,” the expectant mom said. “The light that was shed on the dishonesty of the media during the campaign was significant." Lara continued, ”He is a man who, first and foremost, loves his family. He is a wonderful storyteller and loves large family dinners. We have such great times together and laugh a lot. He is gracious with his time and has a tremendous heart. He is an incredibly loyal person and never forgets those who are loyal to him. I feel very lucky to have a man like Donald Trump as my father-in-law."


Eric and Lara’s impending bundle of joy will be the ninth grandchild for the commander-in-chief. The former Inside Edition producer announced her pregnancy on March 20, writing, “Eric and I are excited to add a boy to our pack in September #BabyTrump.” After the couple revealed their joyous news, proud grandfather Donald Trump tweeted, “Congratulations Eric & Lara. Very proud and happy for the two of you!"
