What these former first kids are up to today

For centuries, the American voting public has been fascinated when a president's children move into the White House. As 10-year-old Barron Trump now captivates our nation, let's catch up with some former first kids to find out what they're up to today.

Amy Carter

Amy Carter, the daughter of former President Jimmy Carter, has lived a decidedly private, yet curious, life. Little is known about what she's been doing recently, although she did reportedly marry computer consultant James Wentzel in 1996, near Plains, Ga., and welcomed a son, Hugo, in 1999. The couple met while Amy was pursuing her masters at Tulane University in 1995, according to The New York Times.

Amy had a bit of a rocky road after leaving the White House in the '80s. In 1987, she was acquitted for her involvement in a protest against the Central Intelligence Agency. A few months later, The New York Times reported that she'd been dismissed from Brown University "for failing to keep up with her course work." Carter denied those reports, telling the Times, "They told me to take a semester off. 'I wasn't expelled. I don't have to reapply to get back in."

Chelsea Clinton

Chelsea Clinton graduated from Stanford University in 2001 with a history degree. She went on to study at Oxford and Columbia University, and to work for Columbia and New York University. After stints at a high-profile consulting firm and hedge fund, Clinton landed an even flashier gig with NBC News in 2011. Her relatively brief stint at the Peacock was met with little fanfare, although it was reported by Politico that she made a whole lot of cash—$600,000 annually—for not doing much. At the time of this writing, she was serving as vice chair of the Clinton Foundation.

Clinton married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in a lavish wedding in 2010. The couple has two children: daughter Charlotte and son Aidan.

In 2017, Clinton spoke out in defense of President Donald J. Trump's son, who has already been subjected to online bullying. "Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does—to be a kid," she wrote on Facebook.

Caroline Kennedy

Caroline Kennedy attempted to continue her family's political legacy when she lobbied for the Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton after Clinton was nominated to be secretary of state in 2009. However, early in the process, Kennedy withdrew her name from consideration, citing personal reasons, according to The New York Times. A few years later, she served as the U.S. ambassador to Japan during President Barack Obama's second term.

In 1986, Kennedy married author Edwin Schlossberg, with whom she has three children. Two of her kids, Rose and Jack Schlossberg, have made headlines for their striking resemblances to former first lady Jackie Kennedy and former President John F. Kennedy, Jr., respectively.

Jenna Bush Hager

Soon after her father, former President George W. Bush, left the White House in 2009, daughter Jenna Bush Hager landed a coveted job as a correspondent for NBC's Today show. She has since climbed the ranks at the network and is often seen guest-anchoring the Today show's fourth hour. In early 2017, she also co-hosted the network's Golden Globes pre-show, making headlines for accidentally referring to the nominated film Hidden Figures as Hidden Fences. She later made a tearful on-air apology for the flub.

Bush Hager has been married to businessman Henry Chase Hager since 2008. They have two daughters.

Barbara Bush

George W. Bush's other daughter, Barbara Bush, is currently the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps. According to GHC's website, the corporation, which was founded in 2009, "mobilizes a global community of young leaders to build the movement for health equity." Barbara, who graduated from Yale in 2004, previously worked in education programming and with the Red Cross and UNICEF, according to her GHC bio. At the time of this writing, she is reportedly single, which has placed her on the receiving end of twin sister Jenna's high-profile matchmaking schemes.

Malia Obama

Fresh from the White House, Malia is planning to attend Harvard University in the fall of 2017, according to The New York Times. Until then, she's enjoying a gap year, much to the envy of students across the country. Of course, the higher education hiatus makes sense, considering her father, former President Barack Obama, wrapped up his second term in January 2017. Given her emotional reaction to his farewell speech, Malia could probably use a few months to soak it all in and lay low.

Sasha Obama

If you thought the Obamas would head for the hills following eight divisive years in Washington, think again. The family plans to stay put for a couple more years. The reason: youngest daughter Sasha is a sophomore at the prestigious Sidwell Friends School, and her parents don't want to disrupt her education. "We're going to have to stay a couple of years in D.C. probably so Sasha can finish," President Obama said in March 2016. "Transferring someone in the middle of high school? Tough." If you need further proof that her mom and dad are dedicated to her education: Sasha actually missed her father's farewell speech because she had a test the following morning.

In the meantime, the Obamas are reportedly leasing a nine-bedroom mansion in the Kalorama neighborhood in Washington, D.C., People reported. They also purchased a home near Palm Springs, Calif., according to Page Six, so the former first daughters will have bedrooms on both coasts.
