Not many kids get to grow up in the White House, but Barron Trump's never been like most children.

The 10 year old has been by his father and U.S. president-elect Donald Trump's side for key points of the divisive 2016 election campaign.

Nicknamed "Little Donald," not much is known about him (except that he had a hard time trying to stay awake during his dad's victory speech).

So here's everything we know about Donald Trump's youngest son so far:

He has four half-siblings.

Barron is Trump's third son and only child with wife Melania. His four other children came from two different marriages. Eldest kids, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka, and Eric were born to first wife Ivana and are widely known for appearing in Trump's "The Apprentice" series. Tiffany came from Trump's marriage to Marla Maples. She's been seen on "The Richest Kids of Instagram," and is the closest in age to Barron, with a 13-year age gap.

He might be named after Trump's fake publicist persona.

The official story behind Barron's name isn't out, leaving various theories abound. Trump biographer Michael Dantonio tells Vice it's a reference to Barron Hilton, the son of the Hilton Hotels founder. Another Trump biography writer guesses that the name hints at Trump's desire for royal German ancestry.

What's verified is that the Barron name goes way back for Trump. The Washington Post reports that Trump has used the name "John Barron" to field media requests since his early business days. Under this alter ego, Trump would promote and advocate himself to journalists.

He's making White House history.

At 10 years old, Barron will be the youngest and first president's son in the White House since John. F. Kennedy, Jr., whose father and presidential namesake was assassinated three days before his third birthday.

He moisturizes his face with caviar.

"Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer," to be exact. A product from his mother's skincare line, she's said that she slathers it on his face every night. Once retailing over $150 per ounce, you won't be able to buy the moisturizer now—Racked reports the skincare line failed to launch.

He has a thing for big cats.

His mother's made rearing Barron a full-time job, and has told People she doesn't need help to do it.

“Barron... needs somebody as a parent there, so I am with him all the time," she says. "As you know my husband is travelling all the time."

However, Page Six reports that the president elect acknowledges there is a young woman who "works for Barron."

His nickname is "Little Donald."

His mom told Parenting.com: "He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy. He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him little Donald. He is a mixture of us in looks, but his personality is why I call him little Donald."

He's not a "sweatpants child."

His mother told ABC that the youngest Trump likes wearing a suit every day.

This is good, considering he has to wear a uniform every day at the private Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in Manhattan.

He likes golfing a lot.

He had a whole Trump Tower floor to himself.

In her Parenting interview, Barron's mom says he uses an entire floor in Trump tower as his own living room. She told Parenting that he's drawn on walls.

He has a Twitter account.

The username @BARRONTRUMP is definitely reserved for him since his mom has mentioned the handle, but he hasn't tweeted anything yet.

His childhood is balling.

The kid knows how to live big-time. No expense has been spared to make his childhood as lavish as possible.

Is it any surprise that he has a replica Mercedes with a custom "BARRON" name plate?

But some parts are pretty normal.

Like hanging out with his grandparents.

Or watching movies with his mom.

If pecking dolphins count as a normal kid thing, sure, that, too.

And his family seriously loves him.
