Ivana Trump was married to current United States president, Donald Trump, for 15 years (between 1977 and 1992). The couple ended up having three children together, Donald John Jr., Ivana Marie (often referred to as Ivanka), and Eric Fredrick. The marriage eventually ended after allegations of infidelity on Donald's part. She was married once before meeting him and twice afterwards.

In 2017, Ivana released an autobiography, titled Raising Trump, where she shared her life story, including her upbringing and the early years of raising her own children with Donald Trump. Since the release of the book, there has been a renewed interest in the life of the 68-year-old woman. She made a lot of interesting revelations in the autobiography, including how she knew her marriage was over when Marla Maples, Donald's alleged mistress, approached her one day in December 1989. She wrote:

This young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said 'I'm Marla, and I love your husband. Do you? I said 'Get lost. I love my husband'.

She shared some other intimate details about her marriage and the subsequent divorce. Even though things were very turbulent at the time, Ivana also wrote that she and Donald now have a friendlier relationship.
