From Ivanka: I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the news with you that I am expecting. #TeamIvanka helped me put together a little video to announce baby number three (which you can watch on Facebook), and we wound up having such a fun time in the five hilarious minutes that we were filming, that I had to share the moments that didn’t make the cut.
Arabella and Joseph are both incredibly excited to have a new sibling on the way (of course, Arabella desperately wants a baby girl, and Joseph hopes it’s a boy!), and I wanted them to join me in making the announcement. Arabella is a ham and was totally camera-ready, but I had to resort to bribery to get Joseph to cooperate. I usually try to feed my kids healthy food, but I gave Joseph his first lollipop ever in exchange for his best behavior. It’s the mommy trick we all say we’ll never do, but when you have multiple children, it’s pretty hard to be above it—it just works too well!!
I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have a career that I am deeply passionate about, but, at the end of the day, it’s my family that is at the center of my life—and to be adding another baby to our family is a tremendous blessing. Jared and I are so thankful, and so excited!
