Eric Trump might know the ins and outs of real estate from its construction through to its management, but it didn't prove helpful when a construction Eric made for his daughter left her hanging - providing followers with much laughter.
At work, Eric Trump serves as the Executive Vice President of The Trump Organization, but at home, Eric recently found himself in trouble. He had put up a hanging chair for his 8-month old daughter Carolina - and it didn't work out as planned.
Responsible for all aspects of operation and management of his father's real estate empire, Eric also found himself responsible for the look his wife Lara gave him when she discovered his handiwork.
In a video Eric shared with his followers, Lara gave him a look of dismay before saying, "I can't look right now." As Eric pans the camera to the doorway, their adorable daughter is shown just hanging there with her feet a few inches off the floor.
The short clip had some of Eric's followers, who could relate to his situation as a father show their support, as one wrote:
"Been there. SAME look of disappointment from my wife."
However, countless followers found the video hilariously entertaining, and Eric gamely showed his sense of humor when clever quips appeared in the comment section:

The pair's history dates back to 2008 when Lara still worked for "Inside Edition" as a producer. They went to the same bar one evening and caught each other's eye as the two tallest people in the room.
However, Eric had his work cut out for him since it took three months before he and Lara went on their first date. Nonetheless, Lara eventually felt "very sure" that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Eric, and they married on November 8, 2014.
The ceremony held at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, was no small affair. Over 400 guests attended the wedding with the entire Trump family in attendance.
Ivanka served as Lara's bridesmaid, Donald Trump Jr. was Eric's best man, while Ivanka's husband, Jared Kushner officiated their nuptials.
Lara stunned in two designer Vera Wang gowns, which she accessorized with jewelry from her new sister-in-law, Ivanka's line.
While Lara Trump now focuses on her role as a mom, her previous work as a pastry chef could come in handy with feeding a family of four.
However, her experience in the field of producing also worked in Lara's favor when she became an advisor to President Donald Trump for his 2020 re-election campaign.
