The 69-year-old Trump, a native of Queens, New York, will be joined on the CNN stage by his Slovenian-born third wife, the former Melania Knauss, 45. Three of Trump’s four adult children, sons Donald Jr., 38 and Eric, 32, and daughter Ivanka, 34, will also appear with their father and stepmother.
All three of those grown-up Trump kids are his children from Trump’s first marriage, to Ivana Zelníčková, a native of the country then known as Czechoslovakia. But Trump’s first marriage ended in 1992 after he began a highly-publicized affair with an actress named Marla Maples, whom Trump then married the next year.
Trump and Maples had one child, Tiffany Trump, who is now 22-years-old but will not appear at the Tuesday CNN Town Hall. Trump and Maples split in 1999.
Six years later, Trump married his third and current wife, Melania, with whom he fathered a fifth child, Barron Trump, who is just 10-years-old and will also be absent from the CNN Town Hall.

As the primary season has dragged on, candidates in both parties have taken part in numerous Town Hall events with all three cable news networks. Concerned that viewers may have grown weary of the format, CNN has now chosen to bring family members of the candidates on stage to add a new twist to the Town Hall brodcasts. On Monday, one of Trump’s two remaining Republican rivals, Ohio Governor John Kasich, and his family, took part in a CNN Town Hall.
How much the Town Hall will really benefit Donald Trump in New York, however, is open to question. After placing a shocking third behind Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Kasich in last week’s Wisconsin primary, Trump appears set to reestablish his domination of the Republican race, claiming victory in his home state by a wide margin.
A poll released Monday night by New York One local cable news network and Baruch College showed Trump pulling out to a massive 43-point lead over second-place Kasich, collecting an astonishing 60 percent of voters, according to the poll.
And while the 43-point margin is the largest yet shown in any poll for Trump, other polls also show seemingly insurmountable margins. A Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday puts Trump ahead of Kasich by 35 percentage points, with 55 percent of the prospective vote, while an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College poll from Monday shows a 33-point Trump lead.
