Ivana Trump was born on February 20, 1959, in Czechoslovakia. While she may be best known for marrying Donald Trump, she was actually very successful in her skiing career before her marriage, as well as being extremely well educated. She attended Charles University in Prague, where she studied German and English and was on the ski team.
Ivana’s divorce to Donald Trump, who at the time was a rich entrepreneur, won her more than $20million (£15.1million) in their settlement.
While this has no doubt added a huge fortune to her worth, Ivana also has a number of her own ventures which she has earned huge amounts of money from.
Soon after the divorce, Ivana developed lines of clothing, jewellery and beauty products that have since been sold through television shopping channels.
A showroom was then located on the well-known Park Avenue in New York for her brand which was then called House of Ivana.
She also started contributing to an advice column for Globe for 15 years and in 1999, she launched her own lifestyle magazine called Ivana’s Living in Style.
Two years later in 2001, she also contributed an advice column for Divorce Magazine.
The businesswoman has also added to her net worth by writing several books including the titles of For Love Alone, Free to Love and Lucy Wilkins.
In 2017, she released an autobiography called Raising Trump that gives readers an insight into her own upbringing as well as the early years of raising her children with Donald Trump.
