Donald Trump has always had confidence in his daughter Ivanka, relying on her during The Celebrity Apprentice and in the boardroom.

Now that Ivanka, 29, is expecting a child with husband Jared Kushner, Trump says he’s sure she’ll make the perfect mom.

“I know Ivanka and Jared will be great parents,” Donald Trump tells PEOPLE. “They’re a wonderful couple.”

Adds Trump, already grandfather to son Donald Jr.’s kids Kai and Donnie III: “They are thrilled to be starting a family. I am very happy for them.”
