While Donald Trump loves to be the center of media attention, his third and current wife, Melania Trump, is a bit more camera shy.

The Slovenian-born model keeps a lower profile than her husband, doing philanthropy work, raising their son, working on a jewelry collection with QVC, and creating a $150-an-ounce caviar moisturizer.

With Trump on the campaign trail, Melania has stoically stood by his side.

Melania Knauss was born April 26, 1970, in Slovenia.


The 5'11" brunette began her modeling career at 16, and signed with a modeling agency in Milan at 18.

She took a break from modeling to get her degree in design and architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.



But after graduating, her modeling career took off and Melania found herself "jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan."
