The first lady showed her motherly nature as she cradled the 2-month-old miracle baby who lost both parents in the El Paso shooting.


In light of the recent mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, First Couple Donald and Melania Trump paid a visit to the victims at the University Medical Center of El Paso on Wednesday.


The First Lady posted several pictures on her Twitter from the meeting on Thursday, and one that particularly got our attention was that of Melania holding baby Paul.

Dressed in a blue dress, Melania cradled the youngest survivor of the shoot and stood beside President Trump as they posed for a photograph. They were joined by the baby's relatives: his uncle and an older woman believed to be his grandmother.

Other images included the FLOTUS meeting another survivor in her hospital room, the First Couple posing with the team of doctors, and another of them addressing the security officials of El Paso.


Alongside the images was a word of encouragement from Melania, which read:

"I met many incredible people in Dayton, Ohio & El Paso, Texas yesterday. Their communities are strong and unbreakable. @potus and I stand with you!"

Internet users praised the first lady for her kindness and thanked her for her visit.



While Melania might have been the center of attention during the visit at the University Medical Center of El Paso, the real star was 2-month-old Paul.

The infant was the youngest survivor of the devastating El Paso shooting. He suffered broken bones, which is believed to be from his parents' weight while they were shielding him.


As revealed by the Washington Post, Paul's parents, Jordan and Andre Anchondo, had dropped their elder daughter off at cheerleading practice, before they headed to Walmart to get some school supplies.

Jordan's sister, while speaking to Associated Press, explained that she was sure her sister was trying to protect baby Paul, and in the process, the child suffered broken bones. She said:

"He pretty much lived because she gave her life."

Jordan's aunt mentioned that the baby was pulled from under his mother by the first responders.

Our hearts are with the loved ones of those who lost their lives at the El Paso shooting.
