Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle spent Fourth of July together in the White House.
Just two weeks after officially confirming their relationship while Donald Trump Jr. was stumping in Montana, he and Fox presenter Kimberly Guilfoyle spent their first July 4th together in the White House, Guilfoyle’s first official Oval Office event as the First Son’s girlfriend.
The couple headed to the White House for the official Fourth of July event, meeting with veterans and with the President before enjoying the fireworks.
Trump and Guilfoyle had previously appeared in Montana together as Trump was to speak at the state's Republican convention in support of Senate candidate Matt Rosendale.
"Just as everyone else thanks their significant others, I got to thank Kimberly for coming out here. We're going to take her fishing tomorrow, then shooting," he told the crowd, according to Vanity Fair.
"This is a miniature test to see if she really likes it, or if she's going to pretend to like it, but either way we're going to have a good time — or at least I will."
This is the first official visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, however, with 49-year-old Guilfoyle receiving a hearty handshake from Trump Senior.
“A very Happy 4th of July to everyone!” Don Jr., 40, said in an Instagram post.
“It was great meeting all the veterans and active duty service members visiting the White House! Today is America’s birthday, and we are making it GREAT again! #fourthofjuly #weekend #usa.”
Guilfoyle also took to Instagram to say, “An incredible afternoon at the White House! Thankful and proud to be an American! God bless all our troops & God keep our nation safe. Happy Independence Day.”
Twice divorced Guilfoyle had been linked to Don Jr. for several months following the eldest First Son’s split from his wife in March 2018. While the pair was spotted together following President Trump’s State of the Union address in January 2018, which Guilfoyle was covering for Fox, the relationship is believed to have started after Don’s estranged wife Vanessa filed for divorce. Since the split, it has been revealed that Don Jr. had an affair with Aubrey O’Day.
He and Vanessa split this year after 13 years of marriage. The couple has five children together; Kai (10), Donald III (9), Tristan (7), Spencer (5) and Chloe (3).
Guilfoyle also has an 11-year-old son named Ronan from her second marriage to Eric Villency, the CEO of a design firm. She was previously married to Gavin Newsom, a Democrat and California’s Lieutenant Governor.
Her father Tony Guilfoyle immigrated to the US from Ennis, Co. Clare in his 20s and Guilfoyle returned there every summer, working in her family’s local store, and even staying in Ireland to study law in Trinity College Dublin. Before joining Fox in 2006, Guilfoyle worked as a prosecutor in San Francisco, then as deputy district attorney in Los Angeles.
“I grew up partly in Ireland,” Guilfoyle said.
“Every summer from the age of five, I lived in Ennis where my Guilfoyle relatives had businesses on O’Connell Street — a gift shop called Dalcassian House, and Dalcassian Printers. I worked in the shop, which sold lovely china and Waterford Crystal.
“I was about 11 or 12 and I got about IR£10 a week. It instilled a sense of responsibility in me, putting in the hours and earning the money.
“My late father Anthony Guilfoyle left Ireland in his twenties and went to work in America. He worked in construction in San Francisco and later became a contractor and political adviser. He was drafted into the US Army and stationed in West Germany. My mother, Mercedes, was a special needs teacher who died when I was a child. My parents worked hard to ensure we had a better life. They supported us and gave us the courage to pursue our dreams. I appreciate that greatly. My father was so proud of my achievements.”
