Barron Trump, the 10-year-old son of President-elect Donald Trump, will be the first boy to live in the White House since John F. Kennedy, Jr. in the early 1960s—if the family elects to have him live there.

Barron has spent his life living in the Trump Tower in Manhattan, where he has a floor to himself—close to his maternal grandparents. According to the Telegraph, he speaks Slovenian, the native language of his mother, Melania Trump. He also speaks French.

“He has his playroom and he has his pictures and art and all of his stuff,” Melania said, in a 2010 interview with Parenting magazine. “And since he has his own floor, he can also put those things on his living room and on his own walls.”

“He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy,” Melania told the magazine. “He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him little Donald. He is a mixture of us in looks, but his personality is why I call him little Donald.”

She added that the child enjoys playing golf with his father and building things. “Sometimes we play together and build cities or airports using Magna Tiles and Legos. He builds big projects,” she said.

He currently attends the private Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, in Manhattan, but he could attend Sidwell Friends, which has housed the children of presidents for the past 35 years. As the Washington Post noted, the school also housed Vice President Biden’s grandchildren and Al Gore III—the son of Vice President Al Gore.

But it’s unlikely he’ll attend the school, as “it’s associated with the liberal intelligentsia of Washington,” educational consultant Steven Roy Goodman told the Post.  There has been no announcement from President-elect Trump on where his son will live during office.
