Barron Trump, who is rarely photographed by paparazzi, towered above his mother, Melania Trump, as the two stepped out in New York City together this week. At six-foot, seven inches, the younger Trump stands eight inches taller than Melania and four inches taller than his father.

The teen was spotted wearing a long sleeve black shirt tucked into dark wash jeans. He carried his mother’s Louis Vuitton x Richard Prince bag while she held onto an $11,000 black Hermes Birkin bag. The two were accompanied by a security detail as they left Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The former president bragged about his son’s height at a recent GOP event in North Carolina last month. He talked about how even though Barron is the youngest of his children, the 15-year-old is already the tallest. Trump also joked about his next tallest son, 37-year-old Eric‘s, height at the political rally. He said, “Eric is short — he’s only six-foot-six.”

Barron rarely attends public events as his family has tried to keep him out of the spotlight and away from public scrutiny. This is the first time the high-schooler has been photographed in public since the Trumps moved from the White House to the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida in January. Barron is attending Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

His father, on the other hand, has traveled to New Jersey to work fundraising activities and host new political events. The Trump Organization was recently criminally indicted for a 15-year tax fraud scheme.
