Real estate heiress-turned-fashion entrepreneur Ivanka Trump sat down for Harper's Bazaar's June issue to dish on her parents, her pregnancy (it's a girl!) and her husband, Jared Kushner.

On The Donald's reaction to her pregnancy:

"He's over the moon, he's so excited." No one should expect him to be changing diapers on the boardroom table, however, especially since he famously eschews that duty. "He'll be wonderful, but not as a classic, hands-on, 'Let me take the child for the weekend' type," says Trump, laughing. "He won't be that kind of grandfather."

On her mom:

"My mom grew up in the Soviet Bloc, and she was a Tiger Mom. We didn't get away with much."

On her licensing deals:

"I pretty much wear only my own things at this point," she says, gesturing at the Ivanka Trump brand platform espadrilles she's sporting. "You have to love, love each piece." [...] "I think Jessica Simpson's actually created a great business in this space."

On Obama:

"Of course [once he was elected] I wanted him to succeed, but he's proven to be a very ineffective leader. He has just not risen to the occasion. He doesn't have business experience or a business mind."

To read the rest, head over to Harper's Bazaar. You'll find it on newsstands May 31.
