'The Apprentice' star Donald Trump becomes a grandfather
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/14/2007
His hairline may be constantly receding, but at least his family tree continues to grow.
The Apprentice star Donald Trump's eldest son with his first wife Ivana, Donald Trump Jr., is the new father of Kai Madison Trump, who was born Saturday in New York after mom Vanessa went into labor at a charity benefit, Access Hollywood reported according to the New York Daily News.
"I think [Kai] wanted out right after the camera assault on the red carpet," Trump Jr. told Access Hollywood, according to the Daily News. "She wanted some of the spotlight."
Weighing 6-pounds, 14-ounces at birth, Kai was born two weeks early, but everything still went swimmingly for The Donald and his family.
"Everyone's great," Trump Jr. told People, according to the Daily News. "Baby's great, Vanessa's great, and I'm getting used to being a father. It's definitely a changing experience. It's very cool."
While the family's patriarch did not return calls seeking comment from the Daily News, Ivana sounded off on her new granddaughter at the opening of The Cove Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
"Now I'm a grandma," she told the Daily News. "What a great Mother's Day present!"
Luckily for Kai, she's a girl and was spared the Trump family moniker of Donald.
"It's Danish," Trump Jr. told People about his daughter's name, according to the Daily News. "[Vanessa's father is] a Danish musician, and we wanted to keep it as a family name."
Kai is the first child for Trump Jr. and Vanessa, who married in November 2005, but she won't have too look too hard for a playmate -- the newest member of the Trump family is only 14 months younger than Barron William Trump, her infant uncle.
