Ivanka Trump: I’m Packed For The Hospital Already

Mogul mom Ivanka Trump  opens up on her 2-year-old daughter Arabella and expecting her second child with husband Jared Kushner in the October/November issue of FitPregnancy.

On her morning routine with daughter Arabella: 
“I got her a subscription to National Geographic kids’ magazine … and as I’m reading the newspaper each morning, she’ll flip through that or sit on my lap and ask me questions about what I am reading. She’s pretty verbal for a 2 year old, so she’s able to engage in these types of dialogues. It is very cute. Before it was just looking at pictures and pointing; now she’s able to tell me about the giant whale that she thinks is very cool.”

On how husband Jared treats her when she’s pregnant: 
“He’s wonderful. He’s just a great husband. He likes my pace, and he’s also been used to—at least so far—relatively easy pregnancies where I haven’t had a lot of sickness. So sometimes I have to remind him that I’m pregnant.”

On preparing for labor and delivery:
 “I had a long-running joke/prank with my husband, where I told him the only thing he would have to do the whole pregnancy is pack the bag for the hospital. He initially thought I was joking, but I kept going with the joke and he became very nervous about it. He kept telling me, ‘I’m happy to do this, but you’re going to be unhappy with what I pack. I’m going to pack the wrong things; some of this stuff, I don’t know what it means. You know the nursing bra? I have no idea what that is.’ So I finally told him that I’d been packed for three weeks already, and not to worry about it. Come on, please, especially with a guy—it wouldn’t have worked, and he is 100 percent correct that he would have packed all the wrong stuff. But I had some fun with him for a little while.”
