Ivanka Trump Reveals Struggles In Raising 3 Kids, Talks Marriage & Being Donald Trump's Daughter
Ivanka Trump has impressed a lot of people at the recently concluded Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where she pushed her father's bid to become the next president of the United States. But as the daughter of Donald Trump, being privileged and more recently, being in the spotlight, can sometimes take its toll.
Add to this, Ivanka, 34, is a married business woman who tends to three young kids. She reveals her struggles in getting it all together and doing a balancing act as mother, wife and daughter in a recent interview with People.
Ivanka's three children Arabella, 5, Joseph, 2, and Theodore, 3 months, and her husband, Jared Kushner, make it a point to share breakfast every day and their mornings start quite early especially if the kids have school. Then during the rest of the day, Ivanka Trump has to manage the family business with the Trump Organization, where she has a retail brand.
She also helps run her father's campaign in between family and work obligations by meeting with various groups who could support her father's bid. "I'm exhausted 90 percent of the time," Ivanka Trump said, especially in reference to motherhood, per Redbook. But she also acknowledges that being a mom is the "most rewarding experience," despite all the stress.

Her husband is always amazed by Ivanka Trump and says that despite her responsibilities, the woman doesn't seem to break a sweat. "Ivanka excels at everything she puts her mind to," said Jared of his wife via People.
The two have been married since 2009 and she converted to Judaism, her husband's religion, two years later. According to CBS News, Ivanka Trump partly credits the shift to the success of her relationship with Jared. "It creates an amazing blueprint for family connectivity," she said, because their religion limits them from taking work during the weekends, so they have more time together as a family.
Of her father, Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump says that they do have disagreements, including in politics. She said she was raised to express her opinion. "But I share my viewpoints with him privately, not publicly. I'm not the candidate," she said in the People interview.
