While clearing out an old magazine rack, we ran across – surprise! an old magazine! (Seriously, we almost never buy any magazines.) Actually, it was the ‘People Magazine’s 2006 Sexiest Man Alive’ issue, with George Clooney on the cover – which may explain why we happened to have that particular issue.
But don’t worry, this isn’t going to be about sexy men.
Nope – it’s about Donald Trump, Jr., and the “Scoop” in that People issue:
“Another Trump on the Way”
“The Donald may soon be known as The Gramps. Donald Trump, Jr. and his wife of one year, Vanessa, have confirmed to Scoop that their first child – the mogul’s first grandchild – is due early next summer. “Everyone’s very excited,” says Vanessa, 28. Although “if you mention the ‘grandpa’ word [to Donald Sr.], he might not be so excited.”
Complicating the family dynamics: The new baby’s uncle Barron (son of the elder Trump and his wife Melania) is just 8 months old. “They’ll be more like brothers, or brother and sister,” says Vanessa, who wants her baby’s sex to be a surprise.
What kind of father will Donald Jr., a Trump Organization executive VP, be? A lot like his own dad. “Trumps don’t do diapers,” says Don, 28. But he does vow to be more hands-on – think playing catch – with his own kids. “She [wants] five,” Don says. “I’ll wait till [sic/mine] she cranks out one, and then I want to renegotiate that back a bit.” Spoken like a Trump.”
Looks like he’s had to renegotiate more than just the number of kids his wife “cranks out” – now it’s more like the number of kids he gets to see. “Spoken like a trump,” indeed.
Open thread – what’s on your mind?
