Melania and Barron Trump move

It only took them five months...

Ever since Donald Trump's inauguration in January, people have been focusing their attention on his 47-year-old wife, Melania, and her whereabouts, with the First Lady being absent from several White House functions over the past five months.

Melania Trump has never been a traditional First Lady - just take her official portrait for instance which looks more like a magazine cover, or the fact that she and Donald are rarely seen holding hands.

It was her decision not to follow her husband to The White House however, that was considered the most surprising.

Upon being elected the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump moved to Washington, setting up home in the White House. While he was joined by his 35-year-old daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner - both advisers to the President, First Lady Melania and youngest son Barron chose to stay in New York.

The family formally announced that Melania and Barron would stay in New York until the 11-year-old First Son finished his school year, after which they would join Donald in Washington.

Just five months into his presidency and it looks like moving day has come, with Melania and Barron touching down in Washington on Sunday to settle for the long term. It only took them five months.

Taking a leaf out of her husband's book, Melania took to Twitter to share the news, posting, 'Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home! #Movingday'

There's no news on how the First Lady will be making the White House her home, but we imagine redecorating her new East Wing office will be part of it - not to mention recruiting more staff.

So the White House is finally full - just in time for the President's 71st birthday tomorrow - we're sure Donald will keep us informed about it via Twitter, it's not like he has more important things to do or anything.
