Thanks to his nearly non-stop tweets, Donald Trump is a constant presence in Americans’ lives. But some of the president’s family members are not as "in your face" as the businessman-turned-politician — including his five children.
Sure, his three eldest kids — Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump — get their share of coverage in the press for working for both Donald's company and in the White House. However, the youngest Trump kid, 11-year-old Barron Trump, remains a bit of a mystery. So, who is the rarely-seen middle schooler? Read on for deep dive into Barron's life in 2017!

Donald married his third wife, former model Melania Trump, on Jan. 22, 2005. Just 14 months later, the couple welcomed their first (and only) child, Barron, on March 20, 2006.
Melania once told Parenting.com that her nickname for Barron is “Little Donald.” Apparently, she calls him that because he reminds her of his dad when the two are spending time together.
Barron is the last of the president’s five children. He has four older half-siblings. Three from his father’s first marriage to Ivana Trump: Donald Jr., 39, Ivanka, 35, and Eric, 33. His second half-sister is 24-year-old Tiffany Trump, whose mom was Donald's second wife, actress Marla Maples. As a preteen, Barron is already an uncle to Donald Jr.’s five kids, Ivanka’s three, and Eric’s one son.
Following his dad Donald’s inauguration, Barron and Melania stayed behind in NYC so Barron could complete fifth grade at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School. At the end of 2016, they finally moved into the White House in Washington, DC.
Now that Barron calls DC home, he’s attending school at St. Andrew’s in Potomac, MD. It’s said to have a diverse student population, which is great for the bilingual child, who is fluent in both English and his mother’s native Slovene. He’s the first presidential child to not attend Sidwell Friends school.
Though the tween’s height isn’t currently on record, recent photos show that he’s only a few inches shorter than his 6'2" father and about the same height as his 5'11" mother. And just think — he’s still growing!
According to Forbes, Donald is currently worth an estimated $3.1 billion, which he will eventually split between his five children (we're assuming). But for now, Barron is just a kid living off of his parents.
If you see Instagram or Twitter users with Barron’s name, that's not him — he doesn’t have any social media accounts. His dad would call those pages "fake news."
