Gasp! Wait for it…
Donald Trump Jr.’s baby is going to be a boy. The mogul heir announced on Twitter that his wife Vanessa will be having a baby boy – or a “little man,” rather – in October. We’d like to imagine that all Trumps are born as “little men” rather than babies, automatically bypassing childhood and possessing bouffant hair right out of the womb. This news was announced in US Weekly, but Donald Jr. wanted to be absolutely certain his followers all knew about it.

What is the humblebrag? Saying something ostensibly self-diminishing that’s aimed at making you seem better than everyone else. Example: Oh, my large, clunky feet are almost too big to fit in my $228,452 high-heels. Voila. This is not to be confused with backdoor bragging, which just as lethal but an entirely different beast.
Ivanka Trump seems rather adept at this — in a Facebook post yesterday, she not only revealed the jaw-dropping view from her office, but also took the time to wish those of us mortals unburdened by a mogul career well, as we enjoyed the weather.

We all know the real estate market is rough — still. But shouldn’t it be easier for a well-connected mogul? You know, someone who’s heavily invested in the real estate industry and perhaps married to an ultra-famous real estate heiress? Apparently not.
One might assume that Jared Kushner — real estate impresario, Observer owner and Ivanka Trump babbydaddy — could have named his price and bagged a buyer for his East Village bachelor pad without any problems. But, as Curbed reported today, Kushner has sold his home for less than its asking price — down to $3.91 million from $4.1 million. What gives? Doesn’t everyone want to grace Kushner Manor?

And, more Trump news. Trump brothers Donald Jr. and Eric had to make a pit stop in Orlando when their plane was forced to make a emergency landing on the way home from Panama. As per a tweet from sister Ivanka (who is at home, hanging out on Facebook), everyone is safe and sound. As we’ve noted before, Donald Jr. says a quick jaunt to South America and back is just an average day for him. But we’re guessing this trip was far from normal. Nonetheless, we’re glad to hear everyone’s okay. Get back to New York soon, boys!

Before she was a real estate exec in her dad’s company, a jewelry and shoe and handbag designer, the wife of a real estate and magazine mogul, and a soon-to-be mother, Ivanka Trump was an average college student. (Okay, probably not all that average.)
For whatever reason – nostalgia from graduation season, perhaps – Ivanka took the time today (which included a frustrating trip to the OBGYN, apparently) to post photos to Facebook of her 2004 college graduation from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, which she transferred to upon deciding she wanted to study business as an undergraduate. Dad Donald and brother Donald Jr. went there too. Is it just us, or do none of them look like they’ve aged at all in seven years?

We think Daily Intel summed up this one best: “What the hell?”
This photo of a pregnant Playboy Bunny Ivanka Trump (and another, after the jump, in which she is apparently eating a playing card) is the perplexing accompaniment to an otherwise fawning profile from Harper’s Bazaar, which recounts the sheer perfection of Trump’s pregnant life:
As with the rest of Trump and [husband Jared] Kushner’s perfectly plotted lives, their latest development was well thought out… Trump says she has had a remarkably easy pregnancy: no morning sickness, no complications, and no cravings other than a hankering for double-toasted salt bagels with cream cheese.

Turns out that guy who’s been stalking Ivanka Trump for about two years isn’t mentally fit to stand trial, a Manhattan Supreme Court justice ruled today in a decidedly unshocking move.
Justin Massler, the 28-year-old who’s claimed in the past that aliens made him stalk the Trump empire heiress, was deemed unfit to stand trial today, according to the New York Post.
A rundown of Massler’s most infamous acts include posting alternately fawning and obscene tweets and comics about Trump on his blog and Twitter page, changing his name (legally) to “Cloud Starchaser”, referring to himself as “King of the Jews” and refusing to return to New York City to stand trial at one point.

How do the Trump kids pass their precious time? Apparently by shooting self-indulgent videos from the top of tall skyscrapers that their father owns. And occasionally taking quick, casual jaunts to Colombia (for business, of course) on holiday weekends!
Trump’s progeny are the stars of a new series of YouTube videos published on the Trump YouTube channel, aptly entitled “Trump: The Next Generation.” In the two minutes allotted for each, the Trump offspring manage to speak over elevator music and convince us that they all “started at the bottom,” but with some hard work, were able to climb the rungs of the corporate ladder and end up as executives of some really big real estate company! Before turning 30! Nepotism? Nah!
