Donald and Melania Trump welcome son Barron

03/20/2006 at 08:34 AM ET

Dtrump_3 After 8 hours of labor over the course of last night, Melania Trump, 35, is a mother for the first time. She delivered her and Donald‘s son at 5 am this morning, about a week and a half early. Barron William weighed in at 8 1/2 lbs and is 21 inches long. In a phone interview about 20 minutes after the birth, Donald said, "Everyone’s perfect. She’s really happy and it’s really great." As expected, Donald, 59, waited just outside the delivery room while Melania gave birth.

CBB reader Vanessa heard Trump on the Don Imus radio show this morning, and said he sounded very excited and tired. When asked about the Apprentice episode for tonight (his usual Imus topic) Donald replied, "Who cares!"

Well congrats to them! I still think the father should have been in there with her…

The Donald’s got a boy-girl birth pattern going on. I wonder if the next Trump will be a Trump-ette? I like the name, it seems like a strong and savvy business name.

So his kid’s named after a Hilton? Love it.
