Eric Trump, from his Jan Brady moment to LemonadeGate

One of five of Donald Trump’s children, Eric Trump, 32, has taken a keen interest in his father’s business, but as a true middle child, has looked for his own place in life.

The third-oldest child of the president-elect and his first wife, Ivana, 32-year-old Eric was a familiar face on his father's campaign trail, and, very much keeping with the Donald Trump mold, has stoked the social media embers with some controversies of his own.

Here are a few things to know about Trump's second-oldest son.

Eric's father, older brother Donald Jr. (left) and older sister Ivanka all attended the University of Pennsylvania. But Eric -- in his real-world version of Jan Brady donning that long, black wig -- forged his own path, attending Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he earned a degree in Finance and Management.

Yep, he made a lemonade gaffe: The billionaire's son posed with a man at a Las Vegas-area In-N-Out Burger and appeared to be drinking lemonade out of a free cup intended for water.

And then, the internet exploded.

He and his brother, Donald Jr., posed for several photos with big game they killed during a 2011 trip to Zimbabwe, including holding up a dead cheetah and smiling.

Donald Trump Jr. told Forbes in 2012 that his father doesn't hunt and "really doesn't understand why Eric and I hunt. However, he is open minded and so always allowed us to go hunting." He said the pair learned to hunt, fish, and shoot while visiting their maternal grandfather in the Czech Republic during the summers growing up.

Eric is executive vice president of development and acquisitions for The Trump Organization, and is responsible for all new projects. He's also oversees the growth of the Trump Golf Collection.

Ballot selfies in New York are against the law. But Eric Trump decided to take one anyway on Election Day, and post it on Twitter, to show the circle he filled in for Donald J. Trump.

"It is an incredible honor to vote for my father! He will do such a great job for the U.S.A!" he wrote in the tweet, before deleting it.

Eric Trump and his wife posed with a woman in October at one of his father's rallies; Trump's son was all smiles, while Yunaska flashed rock horns. But what Eric didn't seem to realize was what her shirt -- messaged in Sharpie with "Latinas Contra Trump" -- translated to: Latinos Against Trump.

The woman wearing the shirt, Ceci Cardelle, posted the photos on Twitter and wrote: "When you protest a Trump rally but no one realizes your shirt says "Latinas AGAINST trump" so they take pics w/ you like you're supporters."
