Donald Trump may be sleeping in the dog house tonight after appearing to forget he shares a child with wife Melania.

Speaking at a press conference about the danger of vaping, the US President said it was important not to let youth get hooked on the controversial habit. 

"That's how the first lady got involved. She's got a son," he said, before quickly adding the word "together" afterwards.

He was, of course, referring to his and Melania's 13-year-old child Barron.

"He's a beautiful young man and she feels very, very strongly about it," he said.

Trump added that his administration was looking "very closely" at vaping.

"People are dying with vaping," he said.

Trump's relationship with his wife has faced increased scrutiny since he took office, with various women, including porn star Stormy Daniels, alleging he has been involved in extramarital affairs.

In 2017, video footage appeared to show Melania slapping Trump's hand away when he tried to hold her hand after disembarking from Air Force One in Israel. 

Countless "sad Melania" memes have also reverberated around the internet as the world has speculated she is deeply unhappy in her marriage with the President.

The pair married in 2005. Before his marriage to Melania, Trump was first married to Ivana  Trump and then Marla Maples. 

He has five children from his three marriages.
