Eric and Lara Trump welcome their first child

Eric Trump and his wife Lara have announced the birth of a baby boy.

Eric Trump had announced the birth earlier Tuesday via Twitter. Because naming their kids after their parents is a time-honored Trump tradition! His brother, for instance, is Donald J. Trump Jr., while his sister Ivanka's name copies her mother's name, Ivana (Donald's first wife).

Lara is a former "Inside Edition" producer now involved with multiple animal charities, while Eric is an executive vice president of the Trump Organization.

Eric is the third-oldest of Trump's five children.

Congrats buddy. Welcome to the club.

Moments after Trump's tweet, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also welcomed the birth from the White House podium.

Once he is travel-ready, Luke will likely join his cousins in visiting the president and exploring the White House.

This is the first child for the couple, who got married in 2014 at the family's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. Lara told People in March that the pregnancy exhausted her at the beginning, but she was "feeling really good" later on. We still love you, Tiffany, but babies are so friggin' cute!
