The family and loved ones of Ivana Trump – former President Donald Trump’s “die-hard” ex-wife – gathered at St. Vincent Ferrer’s Roman Catholic Church in Manhattan to celebrate her life. The 73-year-old socialite, who famously coined the nickname “The Donald,” died suddenly at age 73 from “blunt impact injuries to the upper body” sustained in an accidental fall, according to the New York Post. Celebrity mourners attending her “glamorous farewell” included the three children she shared with Donald, including Eric Trump, who described his mother as “the embodiment of the American dream” during an emotional speech at her service on the Upper East Side. praised.
While Ivana’s only daughter, Ivanka Trump, remembered her as a “pioneer” and comments from her eldest son Donald Trump Jr. praising her for being “fearless and independent” left the church “weeping in tears,” probably it was her former President Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump, who turned most heads.
Barron Trump is really big
As the famous family crowded the steps of the church for a group photo, one thing became immediately clear – 16-year-old Barron Trump, the only child of Donald and Melania Trump, is a very tall teenager. Barron – who has undergone an amazing transformation over the years – stood with a sad expression on his face as he towered over his relatives. The underage mammoth stood at 1.80 m after his 15th birthday last year, dwarfing his 5.11 m mother Melania, according to the New York Post.
The Brobdingnagian boy’s stunning height caused more than a few jaws to drop on Twitter a user writes“I’m still not over how great Barron Trump is. Get this boy in the NBA,” and another written down that Barron still has room to grow as a teenager: “I bet Barron Trump is about 10 feet tall by now.” Unsurprisingly, after people realized how tall the former first son is, an old photo taken during of a Mother’s Day celebration in May 2021 – of Barron looming over a woman as he poses with her – started doing the rounds on the microblogging site.
Barron Trump’s height was previously addressed by his famous father
Barron Trump’s stature was recognized by viewers after attending a ceremony honoring Ivana Trump’s life. However, the teen’s impressive height has also been addressed in the past. TMZ wrote that new photos from the time showed Barron looking taller than his father in 2019 when he was just 12 years old. Additionally, Barron’s father, Donald Trump, spoke publicly about his youngest son’s growth spurt in 2021 at a GOP event in North Carolina, according to the New York Post.
“Barron is 6ft 7, can you believe it? And he’s 15,” Trump said before comparing Barron’s height to that of one of his other children. “Eric is short — he’s only 6ft 6,” Trump said jokingly. According to The US Sun, Barron, who now stands at 6ft 7in, has led to him being the tallest child in the Trump family. Ivanka reportedly measures 5’11”, Tiffany is 5’8″, while Barron’s other siblings, Eric and Donald Jr., are 6’6″ and 6’1″.
Since his recent appearance, some on Twitter have hinted that Barron’s height could portend a basketball career, but it looks like his interests lie in a different sport.
Barron Trump is more focused on football than NBA aspirations
Barron Trump’s tall physique has again provoked some reactions from an audience of media viewers. Though many commenters on Twitter have hinted that Barron, who now stands at 6ft 7in, could be an asset in a future NBA career, the teen’s interests have veered in a different direction, according to the insider. In a 2018 interview at Liberty University, per The Sun, Melania Trump explained that Barron “got it all into the sport.” The publication then noted that Barron had started playing football and had been spotted donning an Arsenal Football Club jersey at the White House.
That same year, The US Sun also reported that Barron even got to meet one of his favorite football stars, DC United’s Wayne Rooney. This came as Rooney attended a holiday meeting at the White House after receiving a personal invitation from Donald Trump. Per the Sports Bible, a video posted to Twitter in June 2022 shows Barron playing in a soccer game, showing off his athletic skills while passing the ball to a teammate. The site also compared Barron’s football skills to former professional footballer Peter Crouch. However, time will tell what Barron will pursue going forward as the teenager is still a student at Oxbridge Academy.
