Former First Daughter Ivanka Trump revealed her son, Theo, was rushed to the hospital. Making matters worse, Ivanka Trump said she was “an hour away” when she got the call from his school that he had broken his wrist.
“This week I received a call from the school nurse that every parent dreads. My 6-year-old son Theo broke his wrist while playing soccer. Since I was over an hour’s drive away, an ambulance took Theo, accompanied by the school nurse, to the closest hospital. Jared and I raced to meet him, Jared arriving at the same time as the ambulance and me getting there a few minutes later,” she posted on Instagram.
“It was a bad break, but the capable EMT, doctors, nurses, and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital staff cared for Theo tenderly and professionally. Theo’s visit culminated with two ice pops, which led to him declaring ‘this is the best day ever!’ The nurse turned to me and said, ‘This is why I’m in pediatrics! No adult in the emergency room has ever said something like that when given an ice pop,'” she added.
“Jared and I are so grateful to the doctors, nurses, EMTs, and hospital staff who cared for our son. With gratitude in our hearts, we have made a donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

Ivana Trump, former President Donald Trump’s ex-wife, passed away in mid-July at the age of 73.
Ivanka paid tribute to her mother with a social media post, describing herself as “heartbroken” over her death.
“Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate, and wickedly funny. She lived life to the fullest — never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance,” Ivanka said.
“I will miss her forever,” Ivanka said, “and will keep her memory alive in our hearts always.”
A spokesperson for the New York City Police Department told Fox News that police responded to a 911 call and found the 73-year-old unconscious.
“On Thursday, July 14, 2022, at approximately 1240 hours, police responded to a 911 call of an aided individual at 10 East 64 Street, within the confines of the 19 Precinct. Upon arrival, officers observed a 73-year-old female unconscious and unresponsive. EMS responded to the location and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene,” the spokesperson said.
Ivanka also posted a touching tribute to her mother over the Christmas holiday.
“This is the first holiday season since the passing of my mother. It’s true: grief during the holidays can be harder than any other time of the year,” she began.
“Learning to celebrate differently is a challenge. I am trying to be kind, patient and compassionate with myself and honor and make space for all of the emotions I am experiencing. New memories are being made, my children’s laughter is abundant, my 96-year-old grandma’s presence at our table brings us all joy, yet the void is undeniable. The loss of a parent is one of life’s very painful passages for which one is never fully prepared. It hits at the very core of your being. And it takes a good amount of time to emerge from how it dislocates you,” her Instagram post continued.
“To all who have experienced the loss of a loved one this year, may hope sustain you, may good memories provide you comfort, may friends and family surround you, and may love give you strength,” she added.

In November, when her father made his 2024 presidential bid official, Ivanka was noticeably absent from the event at Mar-a-Lago, but she issued a statement explaining why shortly thereafter. It came after the New York Post reported that Donald Trump “spent part of daughter Tiffany’s lavish Mar-a-Lago wedding this past weekend trying to convince his much-loved elder daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law Jared Kushner to be with him on stage” when he made his announcement.
“I love my father very much,” Ivanka said. “This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics.”
“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena,” she added, per the Daily Wire. “I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments.”
She told Fox News that she is close to her dad and that he “hasn’t changed and will never change.”
