Who Is Melania Knauss Trump, Wife of Donald Trump?

Sure, we know Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Knauss Trump is tall, beautiful, and Yugoslavia-born, but what does the country really know about the woman who wants to be First Lady of her adopted country? As the recent one on one interview with Anderson Cooper showed, Mrs. Trump can only be a soothing touch to Donald Trump’s gruff image.

Melania Trump has not been on the campaign trail with Donald Trump, but she has been at each debate so far, according to previous reports by the Inquisitr. At the last debate, dressed in hot pink, Melania strode across the stage, reminding people that at 46, she is still every bit the model. As the mother of eleven year old Barron Trump, Melania has proven herself to be an asset to the campaign.

Though Melania Trump was born Melania Knauss in the former Yugoslavia (now known as Slovenia), she speaks five languages, says CBS News. Melania Trump’s native language is Slovenian (her son Barron speaks it also), but she also speaks English, French, German, and Serbian fluently. If Donald Trump is successful in achieving the office of president, Melania Trump would be only the second first lady to be born outside of the United States, as John Quincy Adams’ wife Louisa was born in England.

At the statuesque height of 5’11, Trump began modeling at the age of sixteen in Milan, and moved to the United States in 1996. Over the years, Melania has been on the cover of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle and New York Magazine. But despite what was written in the program for the Republican National Convention, Melania Trump did not graduate from college.

The Week claims that Melania Trump would be the first First Lady to have posed nude for a magazine. Just a few years before meeting Donald Trump, Melania posed nude for a French men’s magazine alongside another model, Emma Eriksson. Jarl Ale de Basseville, the French photographer who took the now infamous photos says the photos are art and not porn.

“I always loved women together because I have been with a lot of women who desired the menage a trois.”

Donald Trump says he also approved of the photos.

“In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”

Bust something that Melania and Donald did not agree about was the language he used when talking to Billy Bush on the Access Hollywood bus. Melania Trump called the words that Donald Trump used “unacceptable and offensive.”

“The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me, this does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”

Melania Trump is Donald Trump’s third wife, as he was first married to Ivana Trump (the former Ivana Zelnickova) and them married to Marla Maples. Together, Melania and Donald Trump have five children, Donald, Jr., Ivanka, and Eric with Ivana Trump, Tiffany Trump with Marla Maples, and Barron William Trump is the child of Donald and Melania Trump.

Melania and Donald Trump married in 2005 in Palm Beach, Florida, and the wedding was attended by 350 guests, including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
