US First Lady Melania Trump has confirmed she is finally moving into the White House.
Mrs Trump will take up residence with her husband of 12 years, President Donald Trump, for the first time since he took office in January.
Mrs Trump tweeted the news on Sunday evening US time after she arrived at the White House with President Trump and their 11-year-old son Barron.
The president spent the weekend at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
In her tweet, she wrote: “Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday.”

The tweet came with a photograph of the Washington Monument as seen from what appeared to be the Red Room in the White House.
The first lady and Barron had been living at Trump Tower in New York while he finished the school year.
Barron will to attend a private school in Maryland after the summer break.
Rumours of marital problems dogged the US first couple on President Trump’s recent overseas trip, as footage showed Mrs Trip repeatedly rebuffing physical contact from her husband.
Mrs Trump made headlines on May 22 when, while walking across the tarmac at the Ben-Gurion International Airport in Israel, Mr Trump reached for his wife’s hand only to be swatted away.
A day later, the First Lady was caught rebuffing President Trump’s attempt to connect in Italy.

Shortly after Air Force One touched down in Rome, all eyes were on President Trump and his wife as they exited the plane, waving to waiting crowds.
But when Mr Trump reached for his wife’s hand she expertly evaded his touch by quickly moving to fix her hair.
