For better or worse, the American people are now intimately familiar with Donald Trump’s most prominent family members, Melania, Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr. The President of the United States even has a young son, Baron, who has gotten more and more attention in the media ever since his dad won the electoral college on that fateful November night. But Trump has one adult child that the public hasn’t become quite so familiar with.
That would be his 23-year-old daughter, Tiffany Trump. Although nobody is questioning whether Donald loves his youngest daughter, it’s also fair to say she has been somewhat of an outsider compared to her half-siblings. We took a look at a few things you may not know about Tiffany, including why she is the black sheep (or the Meg Griffin) of the Trump family.
The forgotten daughter
Trump’s three oldest children, Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr., are all the product of his first marriage to Ivana Trump. She and Donald were married from 1977-1992, but divorced shortly after she discovered that he was having an affair with then-model Marla Maples. Just months later, Marla was pregnant with Tiffany.
Trump eventually married Marla, but they separated just a handful of years later and ended up divorcing in 1999 when Tiffany was only six years old. Tiffany grew up just fine, having attended the University of Pennsylvania and currently going to law school. But the history is what it is, and there are plenty of reasons why Trump shied away from putting Tiffany in the spotlight throughout his presidential campaign.
