It’s official! Donald Trump Jr. is dating Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle. Their budding relationship has reportedly received the president’s seal of approval.
Vanessa Trump, Donald Trump Jr.’s ex-wife, confirmed the relationship on Twitter Thursday afternoon.
The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don. We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids.Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives! https://t.co/fa73W3gv43

“The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don,” Vanessa, 40, tweeted. “We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives!”
This is in response to her estranged husband’s tweet about a New York Daily News column slamming Guilfoyle and demanding she be fired from her news show because of the revelation that she is intimately connected with the president’s son.
Trump Jr. commented in his tweet that the column was racist in referencing that the 49-year-old Puerto Rican host was better at “picking grapes” than men.

“How did this get past her editors at the @NYDailyNews? Or do they condone this kind of talk?” he wrote. “I guess hypocrisy, sexism & racist rhetoric are alive & well there.”
Meanwhile, a source mentioned that the two lovebirds are ‘crazy about each other’ and have never tried to hide their romance.
“They’re really into each other, it’s obvious from the way they are together, and they haven’t tried to hide it. But they haven’t felt compelled to make any kind of pronouncement that they’re romantically involved,” the source said.
They were recently spotted dining at the new sushi restaurant at the Trump International in DC, on the Delta shuttle, and in a loving embrace while attending the opening of the Trump Ferry Point golf clubhouse on Monday.
The pair started seeing each other exclusively around late March.
Trump, Jr. and wife Vanessa, both 40, publicised their decision to split on March 15th. They were married for 12 years.
The soon-to-be exes have appeared to be amicably co-parenting their five kids.
“While he wants to respect the privacy of his family, he is getting divorced, and he enjoys Kimberly’s company,” a source said.
Guilfoyle has been divorced twice and was previously married to both Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom and product design firm CEO Eric Villency.
She’s reportedly known Don Jr. for years but their relationship never went beyond platonic as they were both married.
The Five host was a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and served as San Francisco’s District Attorney from 2000 to 2004.
