President Trump welcomed a new grandchild Tuesday, a baby boy born to Trump's son, Eric Trump, and wife Lara Trump. The first-time dad posted a photo on Twitter announcing their new bundle of joy.

Lara Trump, a Wrightsville Beach native and N.C. State University grad, along with her husband Eric, gave birth to a boy Tuesday morning. Welcome to the club.

Ivanka tweeted a "welcome to the world", adding that she "can't wait to meet you" to her new nephew.

Uncle Donald Trump Jr. offered his congratulations to his younger brother, tweeting, "Congrats buddy". Ivanka Trump also has three children - Arabella, Theodore and Joseph - with husband Jared Kushner.

The baby is Trump's ninth grandchild. "Now that the niceties are out of the way it's older brother revenge for that drum set to my kids".

The couple was married in 2014 at the Trump family's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
