What You Never Knew About Ivanka Trump

Ivanka’s real name
The daughter of the former U.S President Donald Trump and the late Ivana Trump, Ivanka Trump has revealed that her name is actually Ivana, after her late mother; her full legal name is Ivana Marie Trump. Ivanka is actually a nickname for Ivana in Czech.
Ivanka's Stepmom
When Donald cheated on his wife Ivana with actress Marla Maples — whom he would later marry — 9-year-old Ivanka dealt with hordes of paparazzi asking her questions about her father’s sex life. Her resentment towards Maples lingers to this day.
The rebellious Ivanka
While the world knows Ivanka as a serious businesswoman, the New York socialite had her fair share of rebellious moments. Ivanka dyed her hair purple at 13, and by the time she was 15, she was shipped off to a boarding school by her parents in the hope that it would discipline her.
Ivanka’s Brand
In 2007, Ivanka launched a fine jewelry company, which evolved into an apparel and accessory brand. Pete Nordstrom, merchandising president of the Nordstrom department stores, described Ivanka's approach as hands-on, calling her brand “relevant and reasonably priced.”
End of Ivanka’s empire
Despite the initial success of Ivanka's lifestyle brand, her involvement in her father's 2016 presidential campaign and eventual presidency led to controversy. In 2017, Nordstrom dropped her label from its stores, and a year later, Ivanka decided to shut her brand down.
