Congratulations to Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner who are expecting their third child
She announced the news on her social media accounts and her blog.
“Arabella and Joseph are both incredibly excited to have a new sibling on the way (of course, Arabella desperately wants a baby girl, and Joseph hopes it’s a boy!), and I wanted them to join me in making the announcement,” she writes referring to the cute photo and pregnancy announcement video she shared on her Facebook page.
I couldn’t help but notice that she sort of addresses criticism from the past about her announcement that she would return to work two weeks after having her first child.
“I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have a career that I am deeply passionate about, but, at the end of the day, it’s my family that is at the center of my life—and to be adding another baby to our family is a tremendous blessing.” she also wrote on the post. “Jared and I are so thankful, and so excited!”
She also preëmptively explains why she told Joseph in the video outtakes that she’d give him a lollipop if he stays still right after shoot.
“I usually try to feed my kids healthy food, but I gave Joseph his first lollipop ever in exchange for his best behavior. It’s the mommy trick we all say we’ll never do, but when you have multiple children, it’s pretty hard to be above it—it just works too well!!
The parenting Nazis would be out in force dissecting her every move and criticizing the rewarding of sugar for good behavior. When you are a public figure, there is little room to be human, apparently. It comes with the territory.
No need to explain yourself, mama.
Congrats on baby number 3 from the staff at Bellyitch!
