There is a second and lesser-known blonde daughter of presidential wannabe Donald Trump. He actually has 5 children (by 3 women), and we are used to hearing about Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, and Barron. But the 5th Trump spawn is 22-year-old Tiffany Trump, his youngest daughter who has been dubbed his “hidden child” by various media outlets.
Both girls, the famous Ivanka and her younger half-sister Tiffany, do resemble their father (and each other), but luckily they managed to also look feminine and beautiful. Somehow. You wouldn’t think so, but The Donald actually produced attractive offspring. Of his 5 children (3 by his first wife Ivana Trump, one by his second wife Marla Maples, and youngest son Barron with his current wife Melania Trump), Ivanka and Tiffany are his only daughters. But while Ivanka has been keen to be in the spotlight and speak at several of her father’s rallies, that is not true of Tiffany, who has been called his “wildcard” daughter. In fact, the media has largely forgotten she even exists, which is a big reason not much is known about her. Not yet, anyway. Considering who her father is, that will likely change, and soon. How about we start now?
Obviously the girl has looks, but what else should we know about her? Well, though she was raised by her mother as a single parent, Donald helped them financially (I should hope so!). She grew up in California where she attended the $31,000-a-year Viewpoint School in Calabasas, Land of the Kardashians, but far from Trump Kingdom. She wound up moving closer to her dad and attending his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.
She was an intern at Vogue, belongs to a young group of socialites called “The Rich Kids of Instagram”, hangs out in the Hamptons, and is an aspiring model, fashion designer, and singer. Here are 15 photos that will hopefully give us an even more detailed peek into the (relatively) private life of Miss Tiffany Trump.
15. White Hot At The Beach
In 2015, our girl Tiffany set off on Spring Break with her boyfriend, Ross Mechanic, who is (gasp!) a Democrat. More on that later. For now, let’s set our sights on the stunning Tiffany Ariana Trump, who was born in 1993 to Donald and Marla Maples (the woman he had an affair with that ruined his first marriage, and who he then divorced very publicly in 1999; basically his “mistress-turned-wife-turned-ex”). But their little girl blossomed into a beautiful young woman who certainly is a sight for sore eyes in this milky white one-piece, lounging on her vacation with her much more liberal boyfriend.
14. Her Left Wing Lover
It must make Donny’s blood boil, seeing his little girl dating an open supporter of Hillary Clinton, the one woman who has the opportunity to take from him the title of President of the United States of America; so essentially the “Leader of the Free World.” Not going to lie, that would kind of irk me, too. But it is Tiff’s life, and she was not raised by Donald, nor does she appear to be close to him; so all in all, it would make sense that she does as she damn well pleases. For now, at least, that includes Ross Mechanic., who himself is considered Manhattan Royalty. And if this hot pic is anything to go by, we’re pretty sure Donald will have something to say about it – after all, doesn’t he always?
13. College Grad
In May of this year, Tiffany graduated with degrees in sociology and urban studies with her whole family there to celebrate, though she reportedly has her sights set on a career in the fashion industry (big sis Ivanka is a designer whose creations are featured in several high-end department stores like Lord and Taylor and Macy’s, so I bet she can help a sister out- no pun intended!). But Tiffany has also released a pop album, so who knows where she will really end up, career-wise?
12. Daddy’s Girl All the Way
Possibly in return for his support of her, or perhaps because he is her dad and she loves him, Tiffany backs Donald 100% in his run for the White House. I don’t know how well that will fare for her relationship with her far more liberal boyfriend, Ross, and that will remain to be seen. For now, she is Daddy’s Girl all the way. In a Today Show interview alongside stepmother Melania and her 3 older siblings, Tiffany said, “I think we truly need to look at all the amazing things he’s done. Luckily, he’s continuing to excel. We’re very proud.” Awww…
11. Proud To Be A Trump
While so many people these days cringe, or even shudder (or plan to leave the country) should Donald Trump become our next president, his daughter is proud of her name, and proud of who her father is. I suppose she (obviously) knows him more intimately than we common folk, so maybe that is not such a stretch of the imagination. I mean, if my dad started acting like a psychopath dictator, well, I can’t say that I would hate the guy. He’s my dad.
But still… I would not be cool with his antics, and I likely would not publicly endorse him. But Tiff is doing just that. On 20/20 last year, she gushed of the man so many liken to Hitler that, “He’s true to himself. And he speaks in a way that the average person can understand. I think that’s refreshing for everyone. I’m so happy to be Tiffany Trump, happy to be in the family I’m in.” Well, at least one woman loves the woman-hater.
10. The Rich Kids Of Instagram
It is snobbery at its finest. Apparently, this posh and elite clique actually call themselves “The Rich Kids of Instagram”, and the group is made up of Tiffany, Kyra Kennedy (daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.), Reya Benitez (daughter of Studio 54 legend John “Jellybean” Benitez), and Gaia Matisse (great-great granddaughter of world famous painter, Henri Matisse). Now that is quite the posse!
According to sources, it was the grandson of fashion legend David Warren, Andrew Warren, 22, who single handedly went through a “weeding process” to select these 4 ladies for his posse, or his inner circle of power, whatever that means. Creepy. And it kind of sounds like a cult, since Andrew calls them “his girls” and they help with his clothing line. Hmm – Andrew’s Angels?
9. Royalty Since Birth
She may be a princess of sorts, but Tiffany was the product of one of New York’s biggest tabloid scandals in the early 1990s, when Donald was having an affair with Marla Maples, an aspiring actress. This led to a nasty (and public) catfight between the first and second Mrs. Trumps, and in the end, all I want to know is WHY? Dear God, please help me understand this. It really must be for the money, come on now.
Anyway, Tiffany was born the year after Donald and Ivana divorced, and she was named for the famous Fifth Avenue jewelry store adjacent to Trump Tower. When Tiffany was a few months old, her mother wore a $2 million tiara to her wedding at the Plaza Hotel. But alas, as the New York Post says, the world of billionaires can be fickle, and when they divorced in 1999, Marla settled for a pathetic $2 million out of Donald’s then-$5 billion net worth.
8. Goody-Two-Shoes Or Good At Faking It?
Despite all the nonsense about a pop music career and fashion, really it seems as if Tiffany is more in line with her older siblings’ career choices. It was Ivanka who landed her that gig at Vogue, and she has turned down modeling gigs to focus on business or law. Her father, for one, is obviously proud of this, and told People in 2014 that, “she’s got all A’s at Penn, so we’re proud of her.” Numerous sources have said of Tiffany that she is studious, rarely drinks even though she is of age, and thus is “not a liability to his campaign.” Basically, Tiffany does belong to a Brat Pack of sorts in New York City, but the girl is smart enough to know that people would just love it if she made a mistake. So for now at least, she is playing nice.
7. Sweetly Expressive
It is a bit surprising, to say the least, that it is said that she speaks as if she were a 1950’s television character. For example, according to townandcountrymag.com, she “has been known to use endearingly dorky phrases like, ‘Oh, my goodness gracious!'” Perhaps that is not so shocking, but really the only other person I ever hear say that sort of thing is, well, my grandmother. It is cute, though, no? The otherwise studious, musically-inclined heiress (or one of them) to the Trump fortune is sweetly expressive in ways one may not have expected her to be.
6. Sisterly Selfie
The sisters, who share quite an age difference as Donald’s oldest daughter is 34 and a mom to 3, and Tiffany is only 22, seem to have a close relationship despite the gap in years. As we have learned, Ivanka has taken Tiffany under her wing, so to speak, in giving her fashion career a nudge using her connections. Ivanka wrote at Tiffany’s graduation, “So proud of my beautiful and brilliant sister @tiffanytrump on her graduation today. We all love you very much. #graduation.” Sounds like a proud big sis to me! And if all that is not proof enough? Tiff was a bridesmaid in Ivanka’s 2009 nuptials to Jared Kushner. Tiffany is lucky to have such a loving, influential, successful, and powerful role model like Ivanka as her big sister.
5. All Dolled Up
Aspiring to be a fashion model and having interned for Vogue, it comes as no surprise that Tiff cleans up pretty nicely, especially in the above golden shimmery gown. Hopefully she did not upstage the bride! This elegant pic was snapped at the 2014 wedding of her half-brother Eric Trump to CBS producer Lara Yunaska, who wore Vera Wang (and also two wrist casts since she had broken them both in a riding accident just two weeks prior. So maybe Tiff did upstage her new sis-in-law!). Either way, this guest of Eric and Lara’s looked stunning in gold, in a gown fit for a princess!
4. All-American Girl
Here, Tiffany shows off her American pride. It appears as though Donald Trump’s fierce patriotism runs in his blood! And as one writer for thehollywoodgossip.com puts it, “This photo is making our blood rush to new places, if ya know what we mean.” Yes, yes we do. Well, what can one expect between the ruby red lipstick, barely-there shorts, and that flowing golden mane? I am not a man, but I imagine it would not take much more to produce such a reaction. She is even hotter than Trump’s temper! And that is no easy feat.
3. Donald’s Inappropriate Comments About Tiff
Sadly (creepily), it appears that over 20 years ago, in a 1994 interview with then-wife Marla Maples for The Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous, he was asked what attributes his baby daughter Tiffany shared with her mother. Blushing Marla at his side, Trump did not hesitate to declare that Tiffany was beautiful like her mother, and that she got her legs, and (cupping his own “air boobs” to hone in the point), that it remained to be seen whether she would also inherit her mother’s chest.
Say what, now? Um, yeah. This video is hard to find online, but when I did, it was on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on 04/06/2016. And Trevor Noah was, well, speechless at Donald’s blatant grossness (for lack of a better word), and said that while he probably was not trying to be funny, he simply lacks impulse control, a quality he continues to exhibit to this day. Alas, Trevor made the valid point that really, Donald acts as if women are legs attached to boobs, and everything else thrown in there has no purpose and does not matter. Well said, Trevor Noah. How very sadly poignant.
2. Republican Barbie
Well, she could be, anyway. I wonder how well that would fare with her Democrat Ken…? But in all seriousness, the girl looks like your standard blonde barbie doll. This is not a bad thing; just an obvious one. Allegedly, this outfit was one she wore during her short-lived pop star days. I don’t think anyone actually knows any of her songs, but the one I did discover is called “Like a Bird.” Some reviews on the music include: “…the heavy electronic beat somewhat masked the singing”, and “It sounds like she’s just whispering in a sing-song tone of voice.” During this time, it was reported that Tiffany was focused primarily on school, even above her singing aspirations, and that at the time, she had only recently begun spending time with her famous father.
1. Boom Boom & Heidi Klum
This was taken at Heidi Klum’s Halloween party (and we all know how insanely serious the fashion model takes her Halloween parties!). This bash, where Tiff dressed in a sparkly sailor costume, was in 2013, and she actually resembles good ol’ Dad here. In addition to Klum’s soiree, Tiffany also hit the town clubbing at the Boom Boom Room at the Halloween party thrown by V Magazine. There, she partied the night away with some of her pals from the “Rich Kids of Instagram” group, which I still cannot say/write with a serious face. I mean, what a name for a group of friends, am I right? But anyway, this appears to be one of the first times the next possible first (second?) daughter was out among the paparazzi, cameras, and media outlets. She was 19 at the time.
