Barron William Trump, 3 this month, gives mom Melania Knauss Trump a smooch while attending the 18th annual Bunny Hop to benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The event was held Tuesday at FAO Schwarz in New York City.

Although he’s only a toddler, Barron is an uncle already — big brother Donald Trump Jr. has two children, Donald III and Kai. See what dad Donald Trump had to say about that!

He looks so much older in that first picture.

What a handsome little guy! Of course, when your mother is a supermodel, I suppose that does give you an advantage 😉

gianna on

He is so cute, and looks mainly like melania feature wise but with donald’s light skin. He has beautiful eyes, and is donald’s best looking kid in my opinion.

momof3 on

oh my! That is one gorgeous little boy!

Nona on

What a beautiful photo…you can almost feel the love between them…I also agree that he looks so much older in the first pic…Handsome little man…

Gianna have you seen Ivanka Trump, that girl is gorgeous. I believe it’s a tie between Barron and Ivanka.

NatashaC on

He looks exactly like Donald! What a cutie!

Candy on

Adorable! Good to see he didn’t inherit his dad’s comb-over.

Callie on

kissing on the lips between prent and child is a little strange to me

Max'sMom on

OMG, I must kiss my son on the lips like ten thousand times a day!
Maybe I view it as normal since I still kiss my parents & gramdma on the lips. Is it something uncommon in the US? Just curious 🙂

Max'sMom on

JFYI, my son is only 2 and a half. I am taking it all in while I can.

Aya on

Samantha,I agree.In my family we are taught that kissing on the lips is meant for your boyfriends etc. We do the double cheek greeting kisses, but never on the lips.

Lily on

He is always the best dressed little kid! So serious in his little preppy outfits.

iluvallbabies on

I have to admit I find the kissing on the lips a little unusual- obviously there is nothing wrong with it, I just wasnt brought up like that. Common for cheek kisses, just not lip to lips with my parents!!!

Kelly on

I don’t know if that’s a cultural thing but I live in Ontario, I’m 20, and I still kiss my parents on the lips (not everyday, but when I haven’t seen them in a while).

Jess on

Max’s mom, I agree with you… I think I kiss my 3 year old on the lips 100 times a day! I don’t see anything wrong with that.

Sabrina on

Barron is such an adorable little guy!

Max’sMom, I’m in the US and my son always kisses me and his daddy on the lips. I agree, I’ll take as many kisses as I can now before he doesn’t want any hugs or kisses anymore!

Carrie on

I can’t believe he’s almost 3 already! What a cutie pie 🙂

It’s funny about the kissing in my family…My husband and I kiss our children on the lips all the time (they are 9, 7, 5, and 2), but neither of us kiss our own parents on the lips. I think I did as a child, but I don’t remember when or why it stopped.

Patricia on

wow! I don’t see anything wrong with kissing your child, little child on the lips! It’s the sweetest kiss in the world! I constantly kiss my six year old and recenty even my 1 year old leanrt how to come with his lips directed toward me when I ask him “give mommy kiss” – it’s sooooo sweet! I don’t think I kiss my 16 year old on the lips…..ha ha I hardly kiss him at all :))maybe head …while he sleeps:))))

alice jane on

I wasn’t brought up to kiss my family members on the lips, but at 18 I still had friends who did. I don’t think it’s a cultural thing, I think it’s more about preference from family to family. I don’t see a problem with it at all, but I am a little surprised that a toddler doing it to their parents would make anyone uncomfortable. To each their own, though.

pinayhekmi on

It’s a personal thing. I grew up without much display of affection or I love yous so I want to be different with my kids. I will kiss my little daughter and any future kids on the lips as long as they let me!

CelebBabyLover on

I don’t think kissing on the lips is strange. I still kiss my mother on the lips!

eternalcanadian on

Aw, such a cutie. Didn’t he have blonde hair and now it has gotten darker? Nothing wrong with lip pecks. They’ll outgrow this when they get older so cherish the affection while you can! I used to kiss my parents and everyone all the time when I was a little kid. Now I only kiss my parents on the cheek and reserve the lip pecks for the little ones that demand it or my husband. 🙂

BeckyPeabody on

He’s lovely. She’s lovely. Touching photo.

jasmine on

OMG…he’s almost 3??? Already? What is going on…what?! Wow. He’s a doll though!

Emma on

Gosh!! Barron looks about 8 years old in this photo 🙂

Shannon on

Not only do I kiss my beautiful 3 year old boy on the lips every day, every chance I get…I kiss my hubby that way, my parents and my best friends. Sometimes people find it strange when I kiss my best friends that way…but I also tell every single person I love that I love them every single time I talk to them. The way I see it…you can never give/get enough love 🙂

Morgan on

Barron is totally adorable and in these as well as other pictures from the event posted elsewhere, you can see how much he loves his mother and vice versa.
As to the kissing on the lips: my 3 year old daughter has always kissed me on the lips but her father insists she kiss him on the cheek. He finds it uncomfortable, but to her, she’s just kissing her parent. Of course, he leaves bath time up to her stepmother, so there are already complex issues at work in that case! Suffice it to say, it’s a family by family kind of thing and for me at least, I’ll continue to love all the affection she gives me and do my best to return it: pretty soon she’ll be even more independent and I’ll miss these times!! 🙂

I kiss both my boys(9 and 7) on the lips. I don’t see nothing wrong with it. There will come a time when they will not want Mommy’s kisses anymore so I better enjoy it while I can. They are actually the first ones to kiss me goodbye as I drop them off to school every morning, so I know it’s not something I am forcing on them. But on the other hand, I don’t kiss my parents on the lips, I kiss them on the cheeks. Don’t remember if I ever kissed them on the lips as a child.

Molly Mae on

I’m almost 27yrs old and I kiss everyone in my family on the lips. Granparents, parents, etc. Our whole family does. But we’ve always been an affectionate family. Hugs, kisses, and tons of I Love Yous all day long. I personally think it’s strange that people think a 3yr old kissing his mama is inappropriate and is something with underlying sexual tones. That’s ridiculous.

momta2 on

My 2 year old and I LOVE kissing on the lips!! However, I don’t anymore with my almost 7 year old. I think once he went to all day school he began to feel it was “icky”.

astyalestarimas on

hmm that’s nice ..lovely son..

I-dra on

i kissed my mother & stepdad on the lips until i was 14, when my friend made a comment about & made me feel self-conscious about it. i never did it again & our relationship has never been the same. i kiss my 2 year old constantly & i will continue until he reaches that age when he’s too cool to kiss/hug his mama.

uumm guys NO ONE SAID THERE WAS ANYTHING WRONG WITH KISSING ON THE LIPS, people just said they thought it was odd, jeez! No one said anything about it being sexual, and to the person who wrote that, that theory is all in your head. If you kiss your kids on the lips that perfectly ok, its just that some people dont and reserve the lips for spouse/lover. I dont kiss my parents on the lips never have, but I had friends who did, and neither one of us turned into a psycho. So do it or dont no one will hold it against you

l on

French Canadian, when someone says “something is odd” what exactly does this mean to you? For me, it goes along the lines “this is not the normal thing to do” and if you read some of the comments, some people are expressing this notion with saying lip-kissing is something that should be reserved for “boyfriends”. If that isn’t an underlying sexual reference, then what is it?

must be a translation issue…
