People have been reminded just how tall Barron Trump is after a photo from last year resurfaced over the weekend.
Donald Trump's youngest son was regularly seen alongside the former Commander in Chief between 2016 to 2021.
The world watched as he slowly but surely grew taller than his parents.
However, a little more than one year since his family left the White House, it seems like he has properly shot up.
A photo taken during a function last year popped up on social media recently because it was Father's Day in the US, according to Snopes.
It shows Barron absolutely towering over the woman he's standing next to and the bloke in the background to the left also pales in comparison to the 16-year-old.
The picture was taken in Florida by an unknown photographer for Mother's Day in 2021.
The Daily Mail did a story on it when it happened last year and wrote: “Donald Trump was on Sunday pictured jetting off to spend summer in New Jersey after earlier celebrating Mother’s Day at Mar-a-Lago by enjoying a final Florida brunch with son Barron and wife Melania.”
However, a Twitter account posted it this year on June 19 and it attracted tens of thousands of likes, retweets and comments.
People were genuinely shocked to see the teenager so tall.
One person wrote: "Barron Trump looks like two kids in a trench coat."
Another added: "Barron looks like what you'd get if you put Donald Trump on a rack and stretched him."
A third said: "This photo looks fake. He didn't have those hips the last time I saw him."

What are they feeding him? Miracle Grow? Every time I see a photo, he's much bigger!— William Sullivan (@williamtsulliv1) June 19, 2022
Loads of people said he definitely has a career in basketball if he wanted to considering how tall he is.
For those wondering, Barron stands at an impressive 6 foot 7 inches, according to the New York Post.
That height is far taller than his dad, who is 6 foot 3 inches tall, and his mum Melania, who is 5 foot 10 inches tall.
But Barron's older brother Eric isn't far off him, standing at 6 foot 6 inches; so there's clearly some tall genes lurking in the Trump pool.
Donald Trump even joked about the height of his children, telling a crowd in North Carolina last year: “Barron is 6-foot-7, can you believe it? And he’s 15. Eric is short — he’s only 6-foot-6."
Who knows whether Barron will continue to grow as he goes through puberty.
