She joins a long line of First Ladies before her, including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.
However, the now First Lady grew up in a very different country to the US, being born and raised in Slovenia.
It was her upbringing and subsequent travels that made Melania able to do something that no other President’s wife has been able to do – speak five languages.
Melania Trump is believed to be the first First Lady to be fluent in five languages – Slovenian, English, French, Serbian and German.
While other President’s wives have also been multilingual, it is reported that Melania is the first to be able to speak an impressive five other dialects.
Michelle Obama is believed to speak no other languages but English, while there are reports that Laura Bush can speak some Spanish.
Hillary Clinton is reported to not be able to speak any other language apart from English and the same goes for Ronald Reagan’s wife Nancy.
One First Lady that is not far off Melania’s ability is Jackie Kennedy.
The wife of John f. Kennedy is believed to have been able to speak three languages on top of her mother tongue – French, Spanish and Italian.
Speaking about her image in an interview with DuJour magazine, Melania once said: “I’m not only a beauty, I’m smart. I have brains. I’m intelligent”
Melania was born in the small Slovenian town of Novo Mesto and grew up in Sevnica.
When she was 18, she moved to the county’s capital to study architecture and design as the University of Ljubljana.
However, Melania soon dropped out, deciding to pursue a modelling career and travelling to Paris and Milan for work.
Her travels no doubt helped Melania speak more languages than her native tongue, with her English improving when she moved to the US in 1996.
Melania met Donald Trump in 1999 at a part held by the real estate mogul’s friend at the Kit Kat Club.
In an interview with People magazine, the couple revealed the details of the night they first met.
Speaking candidly about his wife, Donald said: “I saw Melania and I said, ‘Who is that?
“She was a very successful model. She was terrific. I tried to get her number and she wouldn’t give it to me.”
Melania revealed that she had heard rumours about the future president before meeting him, saying: “I had heard he was a ladies’ man, and so I said, ‘I’m not one of the ladies’.”
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka last year.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
