She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”
Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. also released a joint statement, “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump. Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and a caring mother and friend. Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion, and determination. She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children, and ten grandchildren.”
The late businesswoman’s best friend Nikki Haskell shared that Ivana had plans to travel to France following the pandemic.
“She was leaving for St. Tropez tomorrow. This was going to be her first trip away since the pandemic. She was afraid of getting the virus. She was my best friend. I met her the night she met Donald [Trump] … I can’t even tell you how fabulous she was, just a great friend, and the most amazing, inspirational person,” Haskell said.
Although Ivana Trump went on to marry two more husbands, she did not have children with her other husbands.
