Melania Trump Reflects On Own Motherhood For First Mother's Day As FLOTUS

Melania Trump may be the First Lady of the United States, but she still considers herself a 'full-time mom.' No one can argue that Mrs. Trump takes a very active hands-on role in raising her only child, the president's youngest son, 11-year-old Barron. As usual, her Mother's Day will be all about him.

In 2006, when Mrs. Trump was newly married to the then-real estate mogul and reality star, she gave an interview to the Palm Beach Post about her first-ever Mother's Day as a mother. She celebrated with a lavish brunch at the Mar-a-Lago Club.

At the time, Barron was only about two months old, and as a new mom, Melania was radiating with adoration for her baby. “A very happy baby. He’s a very, very calm baby; he doesn’t cry a lot. He’s up throughout the day and has a good appetite. He’s very curious. He wants to see [what’s going on], and he loves company," she gushed. “I can see he could be very tough, also. He lets you know what he wants. With communication, when they see the bottle. And when you’re putting him in the position to feed him.”

Slovenia, Mrs. Trump's homeland, also celebrates Mother's Day in May. She remembers celebrating as a little girl. "In Slovenia, as a child in school, we always made a present in class to give to our mother. One year, I drew a picture of my mother. She saved it. When I look back, it’s really funny. A beautiful picture. Very strong colors. I saw it the last time I was at home,” she said. “The family gets together. My sister, my dad and my mom. We would plan it so my mom didn’t know. We went together to buy flowers and presents for her. We made lunch and spent time together.”

Fast forward 11 years and Mrs. Trump is celebrating another Mother's Day first: her first Mother's Day as the FLOTUS. Still, she says, it's all about Barron. She plans to do whatever her young son wants for the day.

Melania and Barron are still living in Trump's lavish New York City penthouse. Despite the outrageous burden on the taxpayers, the 45-year-old mom continues to put her son first. She wanted to make sure Barron finished out the school year with his friends before uprooting him to Washington D.C.
