My dad was joking the other day how he’s going to have a new favorite little girl,” Ivanka says.
Ivanka – the daughter of Donald Trump – says the arrival of their first child is perfect timing.
“We both said we wanted to wait one year and just enjoy being newlyweds. So we waited pretty much exactly that,” she says. “Jared is ecstatic. She’ll be a daddy’s girl. I have a feeling they are going to gang up on me.”
But don’t expect the heiress to spoil her firstborn child. “We have our work cut out for us to ensure that our daughter is grounded and not spoiled,” Ivanka says.
The 29-year-old businesswoman also talks politics. Although her father just announced his decision not to run for president, Ivanka says: “I think he’s exactly what we need. He’s the best equipped to deal with the most important issues this nation has, which is ultimately that we’re suffering under a massive burden of debt. We need a very acute financial mind to get us out of this mire.”
She adds: “America is the largest corporation on the planet. You wouldn’t hire a novice to run a similarly sized company in the private markets.”
