Report: Melania And Barron Moving To D.C. In June

Melania Trump and her son Barron will move into the White House in June, according to a new report.

A source close to the first family reportedly told TMZ that the pair, both of whom are living together in Manhattan, are "absolutely moving after the school year."

According to the source, President Donald Trump and his family have already decided what school the youngster will attend in September, while White House workers are preparing and repainting Melania's quarters in anticipation of her arrival.

The press first learned in November that the first lady would not be moving in with her husband until the end of the school year so their 10-year-old son can finish out the year as normal, the New York Post reported at the time.

"Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign," a source close to Trump's transition team told the Post at the time. "The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum."

Since Trump's Jan. 20 inauguration, the 46-year-old first lady has primarily stayed in their Trump Tower penthouse in Manhattan, New York, occasionally traveling to the nation's capital and elsewhere to perform her duties as the first lady of the U.S. 

"Melania is very supportive of her husband and is fully on board of doing everything that's needed as first lady," said another source, who explained that Barron is Melania's top priority.

According to someone who knows the family well, she has taken a very hands-on approach to her son, to whom "she is really devoted" and does some tasks that her peers typically have nannies do.

"My husband is traveling all the time," Melania told People Magazine in September 2015. "Barron needs somebody as a parent, so I am with him all the time."

During that interview, the first family said that the whole campaign process was rough on them, but that they all supported their patriarch's efforts, even though they said Barron was worried that he would have to move away from all of his friends.

"My life is so busy and so crazy, and I’m away all the time..." the president said while still a candidate in the Republican primaries. "...I just don't have the time that I would love to spend with my children and my wife. I see less of my grandchildren than I might like. But they get how important this is."
