First lady Melania Trump and her son Barron won’t be moving into their new presidential pad anytime soon.

Contrary to their previously announced plans, President Donald Trump’s wife and youngest son will instead continue living in their $100 million penthouse on the 64th floor of Trump Tower in New York City. They will “re-evaluate” relocating to Washington, D.C. at a later date, according to an unverified Us Weekly report published Wednesday.

Donald Trump has long said his family would likely be living in the White House once his son completed the current school year. Wednesday's report could indicate his administration has since walked back on those claims.

In either case, pundits might be waiting a while for confirmation. The White House has clamped down on any reporting of the first family, asking for total privacy while Barron continues private education in New York City’s Upper West Side in a statement emailed to International Business Times in January.

"It is a longstanding tradition that the children of Presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight," the Jan. 28 statement read. "The White House fully expects this tradition to continue. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter."

It remained unclear what the first lady’s living arrangements may eventually be, though she’s already hired Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a longtime friend with ties to New York’s fashion elite, who will serve as a senior advisor to the office of the first lady. Wolkoff will commute from New York to Washington, D.C., with no reported plans to move to the capital.

A president living without his wife and youngest children is unprecedented in modern American history and has created controversy during the Trumps’ first weeks as the first family of the U.S. New York City officials have refused to fund the costly security operation it takes to shut down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and protect the Trumps, a process that has caused significant traffic delays and interruptions.

When — or if — Melania Trump does eventually move into her new presidential digs, at least she can rest assured there will be plenty of shade. The Trumps have begun redecorating the White House with the $100,000 granted to the incoming first family, swapping out former President Barack Obama's crimson red drapes for the same bright-gold curtains Hillary Clinton chose for her husband’s presidency in 1994.
