Ivanka Trump says she watches baby daughter on CCTV in her office! PA

Ivanka Trump - daughter of tycoon Donald - has told the Telegraph that she watches her baby daughter Arabella on a CCTV camera on her computer while she is at work!

Ivanka, who is the executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization, revealed that she has a camera in Arabella's nursery which she can then watch on her laptop.

The besotted mum said it allowed her to still see her little girl while she was at work: "This way I can watch Arabella all the time," she said, "It's genius. Obviously, I keep the volume off but at least I can see her."

The little girl is the first baby for Ivanka, 30, and her publisher husband Jared Kushner (who owns the New York Observer).

Working mum Ivanka also reveals that despite Arabella's 6am early rising, she tries to have an hour with her each morning before she leaves for her office.

And like most working mums, Ivanka says she has the work-life balance guilt - 'the female condition' - she calls it, and admits she went back to work just eight days after Arabella's birth, even though her doctor said it was not a good idea.

Despite her work ethic, Ivanka says she wants three more children - something which caused her mother Ivana to raise an eyebrow:

"My mother's so funny. When I was pregnant, I told her I wanted four children. 'Have one,' she said, 'then we'll talk'."

What do you think of Ivanka's approach to motherhood? Bit stressy for the nanny?
