Melania Trump is third wife of the President Donald Trump. Born Melania Knauss, she is the only First Lady of the United State to be born in a communist country. She was born in Sevnica, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in April 1970.

Melania was later signed to a modelling agency in Milan, Italy, when she was 18 years old. Despite the fact that Melania has a college degree in design and architecture from University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, she chose to pursue a career as a fashion model.
In 1996 her career took her to New York, where she appeared on the covers of New York Magazine, Vogue in Italy, Harper’s Bazaar in Bulgaria and GQ in the UK. Here in Manhattan, she met her future husband.
Three years later she started dating Donald Trump in 1998, before marrying him in 2005 and gave birth to their son, Barron.
Though she was born in Yugoslavia, she became a permanent resident of the United States in 2001, which she turned into legal citizenship in 2006.
She is key part of Team Trump and arguably the most powerful woman on Earth. The 48-year-old speaks five languages, including: Slovenian, English, French, German and Serbian. And at 5ft 11ins she is one of the tallest First Ladies in history.
