Get to know Barron Trump, the president-elect's 5th child

The youngest Trump child, Barron Trump, was thrust into the media spotlight during his father’s presidential campaign, and famously struggled to keep his eyes open during his dad’s victory speech on election night.

The young boy is Trump’s fifth child, and only kid with third wife Melania Trump. And Melania has said that the boy really takes after Donald, perhaps even more than his grown-up children.

Here are a few things you may not have known about the youngest Trump.

Born on March 20, 2006, Barron Trump weighed 8 1/2 pounds, according to the New York Daily News.

Mom Melania used to rub her son in her Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer -- featuring real caviar -- from head to toe every night after his bath, according to a 2013 ABC News story. But the line never took off and her website,, was taken down, the first-lady-to-be tweeted in July.

Barron attends the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side. Experts are speculating where the youngest Trump son will attend school in the nation's capital, wondering if he would enroll in the prestigious Sidwell Friends School, which has taught Chelsea Clinton and the Obama girls, though he could end up elsewhere -- or even stay put in Manhattan.

Though Donald Trump has denied it, a number of media outlets have reported that he has used pseudonyms -- including John Barron and John Miller -- on occasion when speaking for the Trump Organization. Barron has been quoted in, among others, the New York Times, and the Washington Post wrote a story about the Miller pseudonym, complete with a recording from a People magazine interview.
