Lara, a former “Inside Edition” producer, revealed she’s in her second trimester and is feeling better.

“I was exhausted in the beginning,” she said. “It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me. It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”

The new baby will be President Donald Trump’s ninth grandchild. Eric’s brother, Donald Jr., has five children with wife Vanessa, and sister Ivanka has three little ones with her husband, Jared Kushner.

The couple is reportedly thinking about baby names.

“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” Eric joked.

The mom-to-be said she isn’t feeling any pregnancy jitters and is looking forward to motherhood.

“I knew I always wanted kids someday,” she said, adding her husband is going to “be an amazing dad.”

“The nieces and nephews love hanging with him. He’s the cool uncle. He’s watched ‘Frozen many times,” she said.

As for keeping the pregnancy news under wraps, Lara admitted she was nervous her famous father-in-law may spill the beans before they were ready.

“Eric’s dad was so excited,” she said. “We were worried he’d blurt it out at a press conference.”

Lara also shared the happy news on Instagram with fans.

“Eric and I are excited to add a baby boy to our pack in September,” she wrote alongside the snowy family photo with their dogs.

Eric and I are excited to add a boy to our pack in September! 💙 #BabyTrump

Royal Love: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

For over a year, Prince Harry has reportedly been dating “Suits” actress Meghan Markle. Rumors of an impending engagement continue to build for the two since reports first emerged in October that they were dating.

Here is a timeline of the couple’s relationship:

July 2016

Markle would later reveal in an October 2017 interview Vanity Fair that she and Harry met in London in July 2016.

Nov. 8, 2016

Kensington Palace confirms Harry is dating Markle by issuing a statement calling for an end to sexist and racist harassment of Markle on social media. Markle is referred to as Harry’s girlfriend in the Nov. 8 statement from his communications secretary.

“His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public—the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments,” part of the statement said. 

The statement went on to say Harry is worried about Markle’s safety and is “deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her.”

Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William, issues a statement of his own supporting Harry and Markle.

“The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him,” William said in a statement to The Daily Telegraph.

Dec. 14, 2016

The first photos emerge of Harry and Markle as a couple, according to a claim from British tabloid The Sun. Wearing winter coats and beanies, the couple was reportedly going to the Gielud Theatre in London. The day before, the tabloid said the two picked out a Christmas tree together. 

Jan. 15, 2017

The Sun reports that Markle has met Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte.

“It went really well and Meghan was very excited about meeting her,” an unnamed friend told the paper.

Feb. 2, 2017

The Sun once again publishes photos of the couple together, this time after a dinner date at Soho House in London. An unnamed person who saw the two told the tabloid the couple “tried to keep as low-key as possible.”

March 3, 2017

Harry and Markle were photographed in Montego Bay, Jamaica, for the wedding of one of Harry’s college friends, Tom “Skippy” Inskip.  The Telegraph reported that the two were affectionate during the three-day wedding event.

May 20, 2017

Markle accompanies Harry to Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception, according to UsWeekly. Earlier that month, on May 7, People reports that the two were photographed kissing in the Coworth Park Polo Club parking lot in Ascot, England. Markle had been cheering Harry on during a charity polo match with William.

August 2017

Markle and Harry are photographed at a Botswana airport in Africa for Markle’s 36th birthday. E! News reported they stayed with close friends of Harry, who met Markle for the first time. 

Sept. 5, 2017

Markle speaks publicly for the first time about her relationship with Harry in an interview with Vanity Fair. She expressed the support she has from her boyfriend after the media attention since they began dating.

“(T)he only thing that changed was people’s perception,” she told the publication. “Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”

“We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”

Sept. 13, 2017

UsWeekly reports that Merkle has met Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, Sept. 3.

“It went well. It’ll no doubt be the first of many encounters,” an unnamed source told the magazine.

The report comes as engagement rumors continue. UsWeekly claims Harry has already created an engagement ring.

After years of appearing on the big and small screen, Alec Baldwin’s best-known role might now be his portrayal of President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” and when Baldwin took home an Emmy for it Sunday night, he couldn’t resist rubbing it in.

Baldwin was handed the award and stepped to the microphone, saying, “I suppose I should say, at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy.”

The president has never won an Emmy, but was nominated eight times for “The Apprentice,” and tweeted that the Emmys were rigged after one of his many losses.

Baldwin then told the audience that he and his wife have had three children over three years but didn’t have a fourth last year during the “SNL” season.

“I wonder if there’s a correlation there,” Baldwin said. “All you men out there, you put that orange wig on, it’s birth control. Trust me.”

Not everyone found great humor in the moment. Some protested on Twitter that NBC, which also airs “The Apprentice,” provided Trump a platform as host of a November 2015 “SNL” episode when he was a presidential candidate, only to later turn against him.

That was the second time Trump hosted “SNL” — the first being in 2004 — and in 2015, he wasn’t exactly willing to poke fun at himself, according to former “SNL” cast member Jon Rudnitsky. He told People magazine that Trump didn’t like sketches that weren’t Trump-friendly.

“He had trouble with the sketches, and if a sketch wasn’t complimentary about him — mainly physically — he wasn’t into it,” Rudnitsky told People. “He’d go, ‘It’s cute, but no — next.'”

“He was just onto the next if it wasn’t about how great he was. I’m totally serious. I mean, there were some really funny sketches that he just didn’t get. His sense of humor is definitely skewed.”

Sterling K. Brown made Emmy history but his acceptance speech was cut off

Sterling K. Brown made history at the Emmys Sunday as the first black man in nearly 20 years to win for best lead actor, but it was partially overshadowed by loud music, a cut mic and dimmed lights.

Taking home the award for his role as Randall Patterson in NBC’s “This Is Us,” Brown was in the middle of thanking his co-stars and acknowledging the historical moment when, halfway through, music loudly played as he was speaking.

“When I think about it, Walter White held this joint. Dick Whitman held this joint. And 19 years ago, Detective Frank Pembleton held this joint,” Brown said, referring to actors Bryan Cranston, Jon Hamm and Andre Braugher, who all  previously won the award. “I just want to say, Mr. Braugher, whether it’s at Stanford University or on this Emmys stage, it is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps.”

“I wanna thank my cast. Milo, Mandy, Justin, Chrissy, you are the best white TV family that a brother has ever had, better than the white folks who raised Webster,” Brown added, to the amusement of the audience.

Then, music began to play.

“You can play, you can play. Nobody got that loud music,” Brown joked, contunuing his speech. “Our writers, I love you. You are our life’s blood. Our producers and directors, I love you.”

CBS’ live telecast then cut to a pull away camera shot from the stage.

Multiple winners had been played off by music throughout the show, but the audio for Brown’s seemed to be louder than others. The audio from the microphone was cut and the lights were dimmed as Brown attempted to complete his speech. 

Some Twitter users pointed out that, moments ago, winner Nicole Kidman was allotted considerable time to make her acceptance speech.

Variety reported that Brown was able to finish his speech backstage in the Emmys press room, where he thanked his wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe, their two sons and the crew of  “This Is Us.” Watch the video below.
