UPDATE: JTA made a mistake; just because she had a chuppah with Jared officiating did not make her Jewish.

President Donald Trump has a fourth Jewish grandchild on the way.

Son Eric Trump and his wife, Lara Yunaska Trump, the Jewish former personal trainer and former CBS producer for “Inside Edition,” announced Monday on Twitter that they are expecting a baby in September.

.@LaraLeaTrump & I are excited to announce that we are adding a boy to in September. It’s been an amazing year. We are blessed!

The baby, who the couple announced is a boy, will be Trump’s ninth grandchild. His daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism when she married husband Jared Kushner in 2009, has three young children.

The president tweeted his good wishes to his son and daughter-in-law.

“Congratulations Eric & Lara. Very proud and happy for the two of you!” he wrote.

 

Ivanka Trump also tweeted her congratulations.

Congratulations @LaraLeaTrump & @EricTrump! We’re so excited for you both. You’ll be incredible parents & we cant wait to meet our nephew!

Lara Trump told People magazine that the couple made the announcement at the start of her second trimester because they were afraid the president would give them away.

“Eric’s dad was so excited that we were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference,” she told the magazine.

Jared Kushner officiated at the couple’s wedding at the Mar-a-Lago Club  in Palm Beach, Florida, in November 2014, which included a crystal-embellished huppah.
