Melania Knauss-Trump (born Melanija Knavs, anglicized to Melania Knauss; April 26, 1970) is a Slovenian model and an American socialite. She is married to American real estate magnate Donald Trump. They were wed on January 22, 2005.


Knauss was born as the daughter of Slovene parents in Sevnica, Slovenia (then part of Yugoslavia) in 1970. Her notoriety was raised a few notches after appearing on the Howard Stern show with Trump. This led to a layout in British GQ magazine, including the cover shot in January 2000.

As Knauss' relationship with Trump grew she continued to model, but also became involved with the social set of New York. Their relationship received increasing publicity after the launch of Trump's successful business-oriented reality television show, The Apprentice.

Trump and Knauss became engaged in 2004, and married on 22 January 2005 at Bethesda by the Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida, followed by a reception at Trump's Mar-A-Lago estate. Their wedding ceremony was widely covered by the media, with the fact that Knauss wore a $200,000 dress made by the house of Christian Dior frequently noted. The cake at the reception was a 50-pound orange Grand Marnier cake with a Grand Marnier buttercream filling, covered with 3,000 roses, constructed by the chef at Mar-A-Lago.

Recently, Knauss has appeared in a comic TV advertisement for Aflac insurance, in which she and the Aflac mascot, a duck, voiced by comedian Gilbert Gottfried, exchange personalities via a Frankenstein-like mad experiment. She has appeared as a guest host on The View.

On 27 September 2005, the Trumps announced that Melania was pregnant with Donald Trump's fifth child.[1] On 20 March 2006 Knauss-Trump gave birth to a boy, whom the couple named Barron William Trump. Donald Trump made the announcement via phone on the Imus in the Morning show about 20 minutes after birth, stating that "everyone's perfect."

Trump's fifth child, Barron William Trump was also featured on The Apprentice's seventh season.
