Melania Trump (born Melanija Knavs, Germanized to Melania Knauss; April 26, 1970)[1] is a Slovenian-American former model. She is the wife of American real estate magnate and President of the United States of America, Donald Trump. They married on January 22, 2005.[2]

In 2006, her son with Donald Trump, Barron, was born.
