posted in: Entertainment News | 0

President Donald Trump‘s family consists of real estate moguls, entertainment personalities, business magnates and politicians. The father of five (by three marriages) and grandfather of 10 is best known as a business leader and former host of NBC’s The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice. In November 2016, after a turbulent campaign against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Trump was elected the 45th POTUS. Scroll down to see his family through the years.

Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric and Tiffany Trump

Donald shares three children with his ex-wife Ivana Trump: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, all of whom played major roles in his 2016 presidential campaign. The three eldest offspring serve as the executive vice presidents at the Trump Organization, a New York–based conglomerate of Donald’s many business ventures. All three children also previously served as advisers and boardroom judges on The Apprentice. Tiffany Trump is Donald’s only child with ex-wife Marla Maples.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner

Ivanka, a former model and founder of the Ivanka Trump Collection fashion brand, married businessman Jared Kushner in October 2009. They share three children: Arabella, Joseph and Theodore. The couple, both together and separately, campaigned heavily for Donald ahead of Election Day 2016, often traveling to rallies and events in support of the Republican candidate. Kushner has since become one of Donald’s close confidants and is a senior adviser to the president.

Melania and Donald Trump

Donald married Melania (née Knavs) at a star-studded wedding ceremony in Palm Beach in January 2005. Born in Slovenia, the former model moved to New York in 1996 and became a U.S. citizen in 2006, the same year she and Donald welcomed Barron. The first lady played a controversial role in her husband’s presidential campaign. In July 2016, she sparked plagiarism claims when she gave a now-infamous speech at the Republican National Convention that contained a paragraph that was nearly identical to one from Michelle Obama‘s 2008 Democratic National Convention address. She has stated that fighting cyberbullying will be a priority for her as FLOTUS, despite Donald’s controversial — and often offensive — Twitter posts.

Marla Maples and Tiffany Trump

Actress and model Maples had an affair with Donald while he was still married to first wife Ivana. In October 1993, two months before they tied the knot at the Plaza Hotel in New York, the couple welcomed daughter Tiffany. Maples and Donald split in 1997 and divorced in 1999. Maples reemerged in the spotlight in 2016 as she competed on season 22 of Dancing With the Stars with partner Tony Dovolani before finishing in 10th place.

Before the couple’s 1992 divorce, the former model, who was born in the region then known as Czechoslovakia, became a fixture in NYC’s social scene and worked as an interior design consultant for her husband’s company. She later married Riccardo Mazzucchelli and Rossano Rubicondi, but both of those unions also ended in divorce.
