No one needed a medical degree to predict that Barron Trump would likely grow to be a tall man someday. His father, former President Donald Trump, is reportedly 6’ 3” tall, though, for those of us who have had the privilege to be in close proximity to him, that statistic might seem to be on the low side. Barron’s mom, meanwhile, the stunning former First Lady Melania Trump, is only a few inches shorter than her husband at approximately 5’ 11”.
Indeed, one need not have been a pediatrician to have suggested that the youngest member of the Trump Family would someday require his tailors to make his jackets extra-long. But when we caught a glimpse of Barron at Ivana Trump’s funeral on Wednesday, no one could have predicted he would be this tall already, being only sixteen years old. Consider this image from a YouTube video screengrab:
Our glimpse of Barron, and in fact of the entire Trump family, came at an unfortunate time. As nice as it may be to see the Trump Family together and interacting – and these appearances continually defy the leftwing media’s relentless attacks and mischaracterizations of them – this gathering was a sad one, as the family appeared at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Manhattan for the funeral of Ivana Trump who died last weekend.
Ivana was the mother of Barron’s half-siblings: Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka. And while it was indeed a somber occasion, it’s hard not to smile at seeing the transformation of Barron from an awkward adolescent into a handsome young man who is tall and apparently getting taller.
According to the New York Post last year, Barron stood at 6’ 7” tall last year shortly after his 15th birthday. And while we can’t be certain of the height of the now 16-year-old, it would appear that he’s grown at least somewhat since then. So, let’s call Barron an even 6’ 8” tall while we assume various sports coaches in his protective universe are yearning to take advantage of his natural gift of height.
It’s not unusual for boys to continue growing late into their teens, so it’s conceivable that young Barron may still have a few inches to go. Regardless of what the future holds for the young man, let’s hope it’s a healthy and bright one for him and the rest of the family. And let’s remember them in our prayers during this difficult time.
