Named after the famous Tiffany & Co. store that’s adjacent to New York City’s Trump Tower, Tiffany Ariana Trump, 26, is the daughter of Marla Maples – Donald Trump’s second wife. As the only one of the president’s adult children not to have a role in his administration, Tiffany is somewhat shrouded in mystery. But one thing’s for sure, compared to her siblings Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. (Ivana Trump’s children) and Barron (first lady Melania Trump’s son), she lives an alternative lifestyle. 1. She isn’t close to the first family View this post on Instagram A post shared by Tiffany Ariana Trump (@tiffanytrump) on Mar 20, 2020 at 1:18pm PDT After her parents divorced in 1999, Tiffany grew up in California with her mother. “I don’t know what it’s like to have a typical father figure,” Tiffany told Du Jour magazine. “He’s not the dad who’s going to take me to the beach and go swimming, but he’s such a motivational person.” Donald Trump admitted on Howard Stern’s radio show in 2017 that Ivanka and Donald Jr. tried to cut her out of the inheritance. 2. Tiffany considered a music career View this post on Instagram Leather black and eyes of blue #lanadelrey A post shared by Tiffany Ariana Trump (@tiffanytrump) on Sep 24, 2015 at 3:20pm PDT If Princeton law school doesn’t work out, perhaps Tiffany can fall back on the entertainment business? In 2011 when she was 17, she released Like a Bird and performed the track on Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now? special. Tiffany told Oprah: “I love music. It's always been a big passion for me.” Melania Trump at 50: the first supermodel-turned-first lady in US history 3. She wore a cheap dress to a major event View this post on Instagram A post shared by Tiffany Ariana Trump (@tiffanytrump) on Jul 20, 2016 at 4:02pm PDT Her father may have been a real estate mogul and reality TV star heading for the White House, but four years ago when she couldn’t find an outfit for the Republican Convention, Tiffany wore a dress from Bloomingdale’s straight off the sales rack. According to reports, she couldn’t call in any favours and didn’t want to ask fashion designer sister Ivanka for help. 4. She posed ‘naked’ with her mother A year before her father won the race for the White House, Tiffany and her model-and-screen star mother took part in a “Confessional” art project where they appeared to pose nude. She said the black-and-white video piece was about living in the moment and trying not to judge the physical. Did Trump really pay US$3 million for Melania’s engagement ring? 5. She’s an animal adoption advocate Tiffany and boyfriend Michael Boulos got their rescue kitten, Petals, in June 2019 and then Orange Crush (later changed to Simba) a few months later. Simba was found abandoned under a house before being taken to the shelter where Tiffany picked him up. Telling fans of her adopt-don’t-shop beliefs, she told fans she can’t wait to “give him the love, like he (& all animals) deserve!” Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
