The White House said in the days leading up to the egg roll that it was expecting a crowd of 21,000, per CNN-sizable, though about 14,000 fewer attendees than the final Obama egg roll hosted in 2016. "We wish you great fun and a attractive day is coming ahead of us", she said, according to the Daily Mail.
The irony of Donald Trump's Slovenian-born wife Melania gently nudging the president during the American National Anthem has not been lost on the eagle-eyed Twitteratti, who have been reacting to the viral moment.
It will be interesting to see if The Donald insists, much like with the inauguration, that it was the biggest Easter egg hunt ever. Some of those included members of Trump's large family.
The new-ish First Lady broke from tradition by deciding to stay at Trump Towers in NY to allow their son Barron to finish his school year.
Trump also commented on the crowd size, reiterating as usual, "We're going to have a lot of people here".
Melania and Barron, who traveled to Washington from NY - where they are living until the 10-year-old finishes the school year - appeared with Trump, accompanied by a human-sized white Easter rabbit, on the Truman Balcony to address the invited guests. "We are right on track".
The US President, his First Lady Melania, together with their son, Barron, joined the guests as they rolled the colorful hard-boiled eggs across the lawn of the White House's backyard.
Her senior adviser Stephanie Wolkoff said: "Mrs. Trump is honoured to serve this country and is taking the role and responsibilities of the First Lady very seriously". The 139th annual event brought in 21,000 families as they rolled and hunt almost 18,000 colorful Easter eggs. She has been working on this for a long time to make it flawless'.
