Boyfriend / Spouse

Melania Trump has dated –

  • Donald Trump (1998-Present) – Melania first met Donald Trump in 1998 at a New York Fashion Week party. Trump had arrived with a date but after noticing Melania, he sent her to washroom to talk with Melania for couple of minutes. During the short chat, he asked for her number but being wary of his reputation and fact that he had arrived with a date and was asking her number, she asked him to give his number instead. Contrary to her expectation, he gave her all his numbers. After some months of dating, Melania ended their relationship due to trust issues. However, six months later, they were back again. In 1999, their relationship became a public knowledge as Trump boasted about their love life and Melania’s assets in The Howard Stern Show. They got engaged in 2004 and got married in an outrageously lavish wedding with a reception held at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. In March 2006, Melania gave birth to a son, Barron William Trump.

Did we miss anyone?



  1. She is a beautiful, sophisticated and elegant example of how a First Lady should look and act. She is definitely an asset to President Trump and to our country. Jackie Kennedy is smiling down on her, for sure! She is a refreshing change to the previous classless, disastrous First Lady (or First Man?) we had too witness for the past 8 years.
