Future First Lady Melania Trump ‘Comes in Full Hair and Makeup’ to Pick Up Barron from School
If Manhattan’s Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School is in session, then Melania Trump is going to be there to pick up or drop off Barron, the 10-year-old son she shares with President-elect Donald Trump. And, oh yes, she’s going to be looking good while she does it!
The 46-year-old former model regularly rolls up to the school in a chauffeured Cadillac Escalade, security and all, and “comes in full hair and makeup,” sources said in the new issue of Us Weekly. The story offers a peek at the future first lady’s daily life ahead of her husband taking the oath of office.
Right now, Melania’s world revolves around Barron, which is why mother and son will remain at their home in Trump Tower in NYC at least until he can finish the school year — reportedly a decision that she made.
“Barron is the priority for now,” Melania told the magazine in January. “He needs me at this age.”
Melania, who has said that she doesn’t employ a nanny, proclaims to be “very involved in [Barron’s] life.”
During the school day is the time for Melania to work on her own projects, such as the jewelry line she once designed for QVC. She also makes time to watch her favorite show, How to Get Away With Murder, and to call Donald, since the avid Twitter user doesn’t text or use FaceTime, according to the story.
Afternoons are filled with homework and after-school programs, while dinners, at least when Donald is home, are about a gourmet meal prepared by the family’s private chef. You know, pretty average stuff.
“We love to catch up on our daily life and have dinner,” Melania said. “When you’re together and you have great conversation, it’s priceless.”
Melania is likely to stay home at night. Stylist Phillip Bloch, an acquaintance of the Trumps, said, “Melania’s not a big social girl.”
Still, people who know the native Slovenian expect her to excel at hosting dinners and other events in Washington, D.C.
“Melania is an incredible hostess,” a family friend told Us Weekly. “She does everything from orchestrating intimate dinners to bigger things.”
The magazine reports that an aide of former first lady Laura Bush is helping Mrs. Trump to find an experienced social secretary to help.
However, she turned to another president’s wife for advice on raising a child in the White House: Michelle Obama.
