Ivanka Trump reveals inspiration for baby name

Thursday August 18, 2011

New mum Ivanka Trump has revealed the inspiration for her baby's name, Arabella Rose.

The designer told American TV show Today: “I have always loved the name Arabella, and Jared’s grandmothers had names beginning with an A and an R.

"We wanted to pay a subtle homage to those two strong and wonderful women while also adopting a name that was very unique.

"Plus, we thought that the initials — ARK — were cool!”

The heiress and Celebrity Apprentice star is also discovering the bittersweet nature of motherhood:

“The most fun part of being a mother so far is watching Arabella grow and experience different things every day; It is also the hardest part though!”

“I feel like she will be out of the house and off to college before Jared and I know it.”

The 29-year-old added: “It is easy to want to talk on the phone or read the paper while feeding a baby, but taking a break and enjoying those everyday moments is extremely rewarding."
