In his first major social event as president, Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump hosted the 139th annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House's South Lawn on Sunday.

Despite reports over the past few months speculating otherwise, the first lady will join President Donald Trump in the White House after their son, Barron, completes his school year.

President Donald Trump, accompanied by the Eastern bunny, waved from the Truman Balcony of the White House in Washington, today, during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. There was even a miniature press secretary podium where kids could try out Sean Spicer's job (insert obvious joke here). While Trump's misstep was met with routine trolling, Melania's reaction was largely praised as a "real" moment between a married couple. Melania reportedly did a lot of research on the White House Easter Egg Roll and "wanted to get back to the tradition" of it all.

"Here you go, kids, here", Mr Trump says, throwing it back into the crowd. "We're right on track". A Slovenia-born first lady has been successful so far in her most important duty: making sure her husband seems presidential.

The White House Historical Association said that 40,000 of the eggs were ordered this year, with 18,000 set to be given away at the event and another 22,000 to be made available for purchase.

The children receive wooden eggs inscribed with signatures of the president and first lady.

"We will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before, and we are right on track".

But while his wife and 10-year-old son, Barron, placed their hands on their hearts as soon as the military band began playing, the leader of the free world was seen simply staring into space with both arms by his side.

Other images show Melania coloring the flowers and Barron Trump writing, as well. Melania Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN she chose to bring back the military bands and focused on family this year.
