Trump on Melania’s Pregnancy With Barron, ‘She Just Blew Up Like a Blimp…a Monster’

Much has been written about the relationship between Donald and Melania Trump.

Is it a marriage of convenience? After all, when asked if she was with her husband for his money, Melania said, “Well, if I wasn’t beautiful, do you think he’d be with me?”

That said, their marriage did produce one child, Barron William Trump.

Donald Trump chose the first name, and Melania the middle name.

And Donald Trump was a bit surprised when Melania told him she was pregnant.

“He came home one day, and I told him he’d be a daddy,” Melania told People in 2006. “And his reaction was … at first he needed to take it in. It was a real surprise. And then he was very happy.” Meanwhile, Donald says in the same interview, “I expected we were going to have children, so I wasn’t totally surprised. But I was surprised by the speed of it. It happened very quickly.”

At seven months pregnant, Melania posed in a gold bikini for Vogue. “I think it’s very sexy for a woman to be pregnant,” she tells the magazine. “I think it’s beautiful, carrying a baby inside.”

Donald seems to agree, albeit disparagingly. As he puts it during an appearance on the Howard Stern Show in 2005, “You know, they just blow up, right? Like a blimp — in the right places. In her case, the right places. I mean she really has become a monster — in all the right places. I mean monster in the most positive way. She has gotten very, very large — in all the right places.”

Just two months later, Donald Trump would make the famous “grab them by the pussy” remarks to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush.

And then early the next year, after Barron was born, Donald Trump would go on to have an affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

I found this snippet from People particular interesting…Barron had his own FLOOR at Trump Tower:

Though her firstborn has his own floor above his parents’ bedroom—complete with nursery, kitchen, living room and quarters for a nanny and Melania—he occasionally sleeps in a crib next to his folks, which is fine by his dad. “I don’t sleep much anyway,” says Trump, “so if he cries, that’s fine.”

Donald Trump seemed much happier with the arrival of son Barron than he did with daughter Tiffany, his youngest daughter with ex-wife Marla Maples.

In the 15 hours of The Howard Stern Show taps that Factba.se released to Newsweek, Trump discusses with his friend Stern exactly how he felt when he found out that then-girlfriend Marla Maples was pregnant.

“At the time it was like, ‘Excuse me, what happened?’” Trump said in the more than 15 hours of taped conversations.

But it gets worse.

Trump said he then asked Maples, “Well, what are we going to do about this?” To which Marla apparently replied “‘Are you serious? It’s the most beautiful day of our lives.’”

Trump said he thought Maples was taking birth control at the time and the pregnancy came as a surprise. He talked with Stern about trusting current wife Melania to take birth control despite “falling for” it before.

“You trust Melania to take a pill every day or you check if she does?” Stern asked Trump.

“I trust her in every way,” Trump said.

“You know you fell for that one time before,” Stern said.

“I did. That happened. She said, ‘I think I’m so happy! We’re about to have a child.’ I said, ‘Excuse me?’ I didn’t know about this,” Trump said.
