It’s a family — voting — affair! Donald Trump’s children — Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric — voted this morning in New York along with their families.

Ivanka brought 5-year-old Arabella along this morning when she cast her vote for Republican candidate dad. Donald Jr. brought four of his five children with wife Vanessa, while Eric and wife Lara voted together.

Ivanka’s eldest child looked a little overwhelmed by the cameras that surrounded her family as Trump himself voted alongside his daughter and wife, Melania. Also joining the family at their polling place in Midtown Manhattan was Arabella’s dad Jared, making the outing a special moment for the Trump family.

Ivanka seemed to be relishing the moment with her young daughter, kneeling down to show her the ballot once in the booth and placing an “I Voted” sticker on the little girl’s jacket.

Arabella is the oldest of three children for Ivanka and Jared. Her little brothers — 3-year-old Joseph and 7-month-old Theodore — were missing from the morning voting frenzy.

Ivanka later posted a picture of her and Arabella and Jared all proudly walking with their voting stickers as she marvels at getting to support her father.

Such a surreal moment to vote for my father for President of the United States,” the elder Trump daughter captioned the photo.

Minutes after Ivanka voted with her father, Donald Jr. walked in with his wife Vanessa and all but his eldest son, Donald III. Donald Jr. walked in with 7-year-old Kai and 4-year-old Spencer while his wife followed carrying 2-year-old Chloe and holding 5-year-old Tristan’s hand.

The oldest Trump child posted several pictures on Twitter of his girls wearing “Make America Great Again” hats and calling them “adorable deplorables.”

 

As for Eric, Trump’s youngest child with first wife Ivanna, the 32-year-old got into some potential trouble after voting with wife Lara when he posted a picture of his ballot on Twitter. Eric quickly deleted the tweet after several followers pointed out how it was illegal in New York to do so.

“What an unbelievable feeling to cast a vote for my father-in-law, @realdonaldtrump today,” Lara wrote in an Instagram of the two after voting.

The couple happy couple had two reasons to celebrate as Election Day also fell on the day of their wedding anniversary. They both celebrated by adorable pictures on their Instagrams.

Today is a special day for more than one reason….Happy Anniversary @erictrump 💜

“Amazing that our anniversary is also Election Day! Happy anniversary @laraleatrump,” Eric wrote.

Donald Trump smiled for cameras and said the Electoral College map was looking “very good” after he voted. His opponent Hillary Clinton also cast her ballot this morning in her hometown of Chappaqua, New York joined by husband President Bill Clinton.

Both the Trump and Clinton families will be awaiting the results less than a mile away from each other in New York City. The Clinton headquarter are based in the glass-covered Jacob Javits Center while Trump HQ will be at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan.
