Ivanka Trump's Daughter Arabella Takes After Her Uncle Barron's Height In New Photo

The Trump clan is a tall bunch, and it doesn't appear as if the trend is stopping anytime soon. Patriarch Donald Trump is reportedly 6'3." His first wife, Ivana Trump, was a former model who reportedly stood at 5'9." The couple shares a daughter, Ivanka Trump, who doesn't even need heels to reach 5'11", and two sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., who each stand over six feet tall.

When Donald Sr. married his third wife, Melania Trump, he kept the tall theme going; Melania is equal to her stepdaughter Ivanka in height, matching her 5'11" frame exactly. And, when the happy couple welcomed their son, Barron Trump, into the clan, he was destined to take over as the tallest family member. Although his exact height isn't known, it's clear from photos that he towers over both of his parents, as well as his half-sister. 

Some reports have even suggested Barron extended 6'7" into the air by the time he'd reached 15 years old, in 2021. And while Donald and his wives have bequeathed the world with their tall progeny, it appears as if the height genes have filtered down to the next generation too, landing squarely with his grandchildren — in particular, Arabella Kushner, daughter of Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. 

Arabella is quickly gaining on her relatives

Seemingly wanting to keep height a factor in her family, Ivanka Trump married Jared Kushner in 2009; her husband is a healthy 6'3", matching the former president in height. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Arabella Kushner, in 2011. In August 2023, just a month after celebrating her 12th birthday, Arabella and her father were spotted taking a stroll together, side by side, and it's clear she's well on her way to joining the rest of her family in the clouds. 

With Arabella's head reaching all the way up to her father's chin, she's easily nearing her mother's 5'11" height, with the potential even to surpass it. Only five years younger and just a few inches shorter than her uncle, Barron Trump, it appears as if his position as the family's tallest member might soon be challenged. 

According to science, boys usually stop growing by the age of 17 or 18, once they're done with puberty, meaning Barron, now 17, is almost, if not completely, done gaining inches. Girls keep growing until around age 15, so Arabella still has three more years to reach her height potential. The game is afoot — or maybe two feet.

Height is a touchy subject in the Trump family

Sadly, Barron Trump, the current tallest member of the Trump clan, cannot seem to catch a break for his impressive stature. Every time he makes an appearance, people poke fun at his height, with some even referring to him as the new Trump Tower. Certain jokesters have wondered if he was Donald Trump's son at all, while others assumed his height was the result of a mysterious disease, but there's not a lot of information to support that. 

While you would expect Barron to catch flak from the public, you would assume the naysayers wouldn't negatively affect his relationship with his father. But Donald loves nothing more than commanding a room, and a good height enables him to do that perfectly. But when his 6'7" son is in the room, he casts a shadow over his dad. In his book, "Siege: Trump Under Fire," Michael Wolff revealed that Donald felt insecure about Barron's height. 

He also discussed the matter on MSNBC's "The Last Word," revealing, "[Donald Trump] is jealous of everyone's height." Wolff added, "He never lets himself be in a photograph with someone taller than he is. Height is one of his techniques. He uses his height — and, remember, Donald Trump is a very large man." So, if Arabella Kushner continues to grow at this rate, we're unsure if the former president will be open to a photo-op with her.
