During a recent appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly, Donald Trump, 62, was reminded by host Kelly Ripa that his newest grandchild — 2-week-old Donald John Trump III — will have a lot to live up to, given his birth name. “Well, he’s going to try,” Donald replied. Predicting that the new baby will “be competitive” just like his father, 32-year-old Donald Trump Jr., Donald added “I think he’s going to be just wonderful…He’s beautiful.”

The real estate mogul knows a thing or two about beautiful babies! In 2006, he welcomed son Barron William, 3 this month, with wife Melania Knauss Trump. “[Barron] is now an uncle,” Donald notes. “A very young uncle.” He adds,

“I call him ‘Uncle Barron.’ He’s a sweetheart, he’s great. And he’s got a very good mother. She takes good care of him…She’s terrific.”

In addition to Donald III, Don Jr. and his wife Vanessa are parents to 21-month-old Kai Madison; In addition to Donald Jr. and Barron, Donald is dad to Ivanka, 27, Eric, 25, and Tiffany, 15.
