Donald Trump and his seven-months-pregnant wife, Melania Trump, spoke with People magazine about her pregnancy and impending childbirth, along with their preferences regarding Donald’s parental involvement.
Melania shared how she told Donald that she was pregnant and their plans for their baby once he or she is born."He came home (one day last August), and I told him he’d be a daddy," Melania said. "And his reaction was … at first he needed to take it in. It was a real surprise. And then he was very happy."
However, Donald remembers it a little bit differently: "I expected we were going to have children, so I wasn’t totally surprised," he said. "But I was surprised by the speed of it. It happened very quickly."

Melania says that she and Donald are very independent of each other, but they do enjoy going to movies and spending time at home. Melania spends most if her days in preparation for their new baby, waking up at around seven to work on the baby’s nursery, which is being constructed in their New York triplex apartment at Trump Tower.
As for Donald’s parenting skills, which have already been honed with his four children with ex-wives Ivana Trump and Marla Maples, Melania is confident that Donald "will be a fantastic dad."
Donald says he will be a somewhat hands-off father in some aspects. But Melania seems to be understanding of Donald’s ways.
"I don’t expect him to walk down Fifth Avenue with a stroller," Melania said.
As for the baby, the couple do know the sex, but have declared that, "It’s a secret."
Melania has already hired a full-time nanny to help with baby and says she plans to resume her modeling career, taking only assignments that she is "passionate about."
As for the baby’s birth, the couple have reached an understanding about their delivery plans. They have agreed that Donald will not be present in the delivery room when their little one arrives.
"I think it’s easier for Melania if I’m not there," Donald said.
