MELANIA TRUMP, 49, has been a member of US President Donald Trump for more than 20 years. The couple got married in 2005 in an exuberant ceremony, but how did the couple first meet?
Melania Trump has been the American First Lady since Donald Trump became president in 2017. Formally a model, she was further thrown in the spotlight when she started dating businessman Donald. After seven years of dating, the couple married in a lavish ceremony that was thought to cost about £ 1.6 million and she became Donald’s third wife. She also became the stepmother of Donald Trump Jr., 41, Ivanka Trump, 37, Eric Trump, 35, and Tiffany Trump, 25.
When did they meet?
The former model met her husband at a party in a nightclub in 1998 and they started dating shortly thereafter.
Melania was 28 and Donald 52, but despite the age gap of 24, they have stayed together ever since.
After years of agreement, Donald proposed Melania and married on January 22, 2005.
What was their wedding like?
The couple reportedly spent a huge $ 2 million, or £ 1.6 million, on their wedding party.
Although they withdrew from reception at Donald’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, they splash out in other areas.
Melania chose to wear a stunning Dior design with a 13-foot train and was covered with 1,500 stones and pearls.
The custom dress would cost around £ 80,000 and she turned into a silk Vera Wang number for the reception.
At the wedding, the couple arranged a ceremony that they would remember.
To do this, they invited a large number of guests to celebrate the big day.
At the wedding, the couple broke the couch with a yellow seven-layer biscuit, which cost around £ 40,000.
Melania and Donald fed their 400 wedding guests with a menu of caviar, beef, and lobster, which they think spent £ 80,000.
The former model is the stepmother of Donald’s children, although she is slightly older than she is.
She was born on April 26, 1970, making her only 11 years older than Ivanka Trump.
Both Ivanka and Melania often step out of wearing pieces from their chic design cabinets.
