Clips of her eldest daughter Arabella singing Chinese songs and reciting Tang Dynasty poems in Mandarin went viral online, and now her youngest son is following in her footsteps.

Screenshots from Ivanka Trump's video showing Arabella singing Chinese songs.

While five-year-old Arabella is quite the star in China, one-year-old Theodore is ready to become famous in his own right, having already started learning Mandarin.

Ivanka posted a photo of herself and Theodore playing with a set of educational building blocks with Chinese characters on Instagram on Tuesday, just one week after the baby boy celebrated his first birthday.

Ivanka first let the world know about her talented youngsters by tweeting a video in January of Arabella singing a Chinese song to wish people a happy New Year.

Ivanka and her daughter Arabella join the celebrations for the Lunar New Year at the Chinese embassy in Washington, DC on February 1, 2017.

And on February 1, Arabella, who has been learning Mandarin since the age of 18 months, and her mother, attended a Lunar New Year reception at the Chinese Embassy in Washington DC.
