Must-Know Facts About Melania Trump

Melania's Age Gap

Melania married Donald Trump and became a stepmother to four children who were barely younger than herself. In fact, she is just seven years older than Don's eldest son, Donald Jr.
At the time of this writing, Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany are 41, 39, and 29 years old, respectively, while Melania is still in her early 50s — which is not a terribly huge gap.

Sharing Intimate Details

Melania, the former first lady, who's notoriously tight-lipped about her private life, has been wildly candid about her intimate relations with Trump.
"We have incredible sex at least once a day," Melania admitted to Howard Stern in 1999. In turn, Trump gloated about how good she looked in a "very small thong."

Foreign-born First Lady

Melania was born in Slovenia to an Austrian father and a Slovenian mother, making her one of two foreign-born first ladies, second only to John Quincy Adams' wife, Louisa Adams.
Melania fluently speaks Slovenian, which she has taught to her son, Barron Trump, and according to CNN, she also speaks French, Serbian, German, Italian, and English.

only First Lady To Pose Nude

In 2000, Melania lay nude on a fur rug, dripping in diamonds, and handcuffed to a briefcase in a private jet for British GQ, making her the only first lady to have posed nude.
"Given that she was obviously so keen to be featured in GQ, we came up with a rather kitsch and camp story for her," longtime GQ editor Dylan Jones told The Hollywood Reporter.

Working Illegally In The U.S.

According to BBC News, Melania first entered the U.S. in August 1996 with a visitor visa. During this time, she made money from modeling jobs without legal permission to work.
Melania got her H-1B work visa later the same year before eventually graduating to an EB-1 visa, or the Einstein Visa, in 2001, and she became a U.S. citizen in 2006.
