Eric Trump recently revealed that his wife Lara is pregnant with their first child. The president’s son used Twitter to make his announcement, stating the couple will be “adding a boy to Team Trump” in September.

33-year-old Lara told People magazine that the first few months of her pregnancy were exhausting—a sentiment many of us moms can relate to. Now in her second trimester, it appears to have dwindled. “It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now,” she said in the interview. The couple shared that they’re still debating baby names because the one they love, Charlie, has already gone to their dog. Lara says she’s nervous about being a first-time-mom, something we can definitely relate to, but she says she’s always wanted kids and believes the practice she and Eric have had babysitting their nephews and nieces, the’re going to be just fine.

“Eric’s going to be an amazing dad,” Lara says. “The nieces and nephews love hanging with him. He’s the cool uncle. He’s watched Frozen many times.”

She also added that her father-in-law was very excited. So excited, in fact, that the couple feared Donald Trump would “blurt it out at a press conference.” Instead, the president also took to Twitter to congratulate the pair, re-tweeting his son’s post and adding, “Congratulations Eric & Lara. Very proud and happy for the two of you!”

This will be Donald Trump’s ninth grandchild.

Eric’s sister Ivanka also congratulated the pair on their future bundle of joy:

Eric also recently posted a rebuttal to a Tweet by Chelsea Handler, who joked about the world needing another person with “those jeans.”

For now, Eric will be focusing his attentions on running the Trump Organization alongside brother Don Jr.
