As Sasha and Malia Obama leave the White House for the last time, Barron Trump will not be occupying one of the bedrooms at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. During the election, the public’s access to Barron was very guarded, so Americans aren’t as familiar with him as they are with the children of past presidents. That doesn’t mean we can’t get to know Barron a little better. Here are 11 things you might not know about the newest First Child:

1. The last First Kid who was a boy was John F. Kennedy, Jr.

2. He’s President Donald Trump’s fifth child.

5.  His mom nicknamed him “Little Donald” because he has a similar personality to his father’s.

10. Barron will not live at the White House… at least not until the end of the school year. He and the First Lady will stay in New York City so he can live in Trump Tower and continue attending school.
