An improbable candidate just 13 months ago, New York businessman Donald Trump is officially the Republican Party's nominee for president.
Mr Trump's turbulent year-long ascent to the top of the political pile was completed when delegates picked him as their flag-bearer on Tuesday, the second day of the ongoing Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
"Today has been a very, very special day watching my children put me over the top," he told cheering delegates via video from New York.
Earlier, 22-year-old Tiffany Trump painted him as a caring father who was not too hung up about his children's school grades.
And in a rousing speech that some called excellent, eldest son Donald, 38, praised his father for his drive and business acumen as a real estate developer who, nevertheless, remained a regular guy.
As for the day's speakers, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, they focused on attacking presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton instead of praising Mr Trump.
