Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s Ex, To Write Memoir About Motherhood
Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s first wife, is writing a memoir about her experiences as a mother.
In the book, to be titled Raising Trump, Ivana will offer insight about her own life and share the lessons she taught her children — Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka Trump.
According to publisher Gallery Books, Raising Trump will go on sale in September.
In a press release, the publisher stated that the book will be a “non-partisan, non-political book about motherhood, strength, and resilience.” It is unlikely that there will be anything critical in the book of President Trump, whom Ivana supported during the election.
Ivana said in a statement the book was in part a response to compliments she receives about her children. “I was a tough and loving mother who taught them the value of a dollar, not to lie, cheat or steal, respect for others, and other life lessons that I’ll share now in Raising Trump, along with unfiltered personal stories about Don, Eric, and Ivanka from their early childhood to becoming the ‘first sons and daughter,’” she said.
The Czech-born Ivana was married to President Trump from 1977 to 1992, when their marriage dissolved amid revelations that Trump had an affair with Marla Maples, who later became his second wife.
Ivana has written books before, including The Best Is Yet to Come: Coping with Divorce and Enjoying Life Again.
