MELANIA TRUMP, Donald Trump’s wife and First Lady of the United States of America, was born and grew up in Slovenia before moving to the US. Did you know the mum-of-one speaks many languages?
Melania Trump, 47, was born in Slovenia, eastern Europe and grew up there before moving to New York.
Not much was known about the wife of Donald Trump before he became President last year, and many wondered what kind of First Lady his enigmatic wife would make.
As the year has gone by, details about Mrs. Trump have emerged, and it seems the former model has brains as well as stunning beauty.
For it is widely reported Melania speaks as many as five languages.
As well as her native Slovenian, Melania obviously speaks fluent English.
French is another language on her list, as she was heard speaking it with children during a visit to a hospital in Paris last summer.
But that’s not all. Melania rumoured to also speak German, Italian and Serbo-Croatian.
The First Lady was sat next to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 dinner in Germany last year, and the duo were seen laughing and enjoying an animated conversation.

Putin is known to speak German, so it was widely assumed they conversed in that language.
Melania is the first President’s wife thought to speak so many different languages.
Jackie Kennedy spoke French and also a little Spanish, while Lou Hoover spoke Mandarin Chinese. Pat Nixon was able to speak some Spanish.
One mystery surrounding Melania was solved recently after an interview with a former First Lady shed some light on a situation which has baffled onlookers for months.

Michelle Obama recently revealed what was in the box Melania Trump gave to her on the day of the Inauguration of Donald Trump.
During the event on January 20 last year, the Obamas greeted the Trump’s outside the White House and, after exchanging a welcome kiss, Melania handed Michelle a present that was wrapped inside a Tiffany & Company blue box.
The box was fairly large in size, making it unlikely to have contained jewellery.
So what was inside? It has finally been explained.
