Ivanka Trump Talks Parenting, Says Her Kids "Adore" Grandpa Donald
Ivanka Trump's got a lot on her plate. She's a full-time businesswoman and working mom to two little ones, Arabella, 4, and Joseph, 2. With another baby on the way in just a couple of months, Ivanka's already busy schedule is about to be even more jam-packed. Luckily, she has a supportive family unit, including her husband, real-estate developer Jared Kushner, who is a hands-on dad. Not to mention, her father and presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who Ivanka says has been an "incredible" role model to her children.
Ivanka sat down with Yahoo Parenting on Sunday to chat about her day-to-day life as a mom, executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization, founder of Ivanka Trump Collection, and entrepreneur. Trump, who also spearheads the #WomenWhoWork initiative, truly manages to do it all, even though she says she's not a fan of the "having it all" conversation. "[Having it all] implies that there’s only one right way to live your life, and that’s just not true," she said.
While busy juggling many different projects, Ivanka's managed to zero in on what's really important in her life: her kids. When asked about her main priority at the moment, the media mogul said she values spending individual, one-on-one time with each of her children. "Arabella loves reading," Ivanka said. "Joseph always wants to play with cars and trains with me on the floor. I make sure each day I spend like 30 minutes doing something with each kid."
When it comes to the kids' relationship with her dad, Donald Trump, Ivanka says he is "really really amazing with the kids." "They spend a lot of time rolling around with him on golf carts," she said. "They adore him." And, although, she jokes that Arabella and Joseph are still too young to know much about their grandpa's presidential run, who's to say they won't one day follow in his footsteps in the political sphere. Only time will tell.
