Tiffany Trump may be the fourth child of loved and loathed President Donald J. Trump and his second wife, actress Marla Maples, but she’s forging an identity all her own. No, she’s not helping to run her dad’s multi-billion dollar company, like her older half-brothers, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are doing while dad handles the day-to-day duties as the leader of the free world. And no, she didn’t tag along to the White House, like her older half-sister, Ivanka Trump, and younger half-brother, Barron Trump. Instead, Tiffany finished college, started law school, and has been generally living exactly the kind of glamorous life you’d expect the child of one of the world’s wealthiest families to be living.
But for all of the instant fame that comes with just having the last name Trump, Tiffany has managed to stay relatively out of the spotlight — until now. Check out these interesting facts about the lesser known member of the Trump family.
Tiffany Trump, born Oct. 13, 1993, is named after the famed New York City jewelry store Tiffany & Co., according to Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana Trump. How would she know? Good question. Ivana spoke with ABC News about it when she also dropped the detail that Donald actually wanted to give the name to his first daughter, Ivanka, until Ivana nixed that notion.
What was the fascination with Tiffany & Co.? Well, one of Donald’s biggest accomplishments was the construction of Trump Tower, which happens to be located right next to the famed boutique at the corner of 5th Avenue and 57th Street. In order to build his eponymous skyscraper, Donald had to secure the “air rights” above Tiffany & Co., which he proudly boasted to The Orlando Sentinel that he accomplished with a handshake deal. So, why was the name Tiffany so near and dear to Donald Trump? No, it wasn’t those tantalizing blue boxes, but rather, the idea that is child could become a living, breathing reminder of one of his greatest deals.
