No wonder that some of the significant details can be simply missed due to the amount of popularity per square meter. That is why to story of Donald’s proposal was not in such demand until the 2018 Met Gala came around the corner.


Unnoticeable proposal

Their relationship has lasted for five years, and Trump considered this time reasonable to make a proposal. The two met even earlier, in 1998, when Donald was dating another woman. Regardless, he dared to ask for Melania’s phone number:

He wanted my number, but he was with a date, so of course I didn’t give it to him. I said, ‘I am not giving you my number; you give me yours, and I will call you.'


The proposal itself was as unexpected as their first meeting. Donald got down on his knee on the far side of the room. No one even noticed how $1.5 million, 15-carat engagement ring slipped onto Melania’s finger.
