Ivana Trump, Ex-wife Of Former US President Trump, Passes Away At 73; Found At Bottom Of Staircase In NYC Home
Ivana Trump, the ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, passed away at the age of 73, the former president announced on Thursday, as reported by ABC News. 

She was Donald Trump's first wife. They had three children together: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.


Ivana Trump "passed away at her home in New York City," Donald Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social, without providing the cause of death. "Our mother was an incredible woman -- a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and a caring mother and friend," the Trump family said in a statement.

"Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination," the family continued, "She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren."

"It's been a very sad day," said Eric Trump told the reporters, as he walked out of his mother’s apartment building on Thursday afternoon.  


As per the reports, the Manhattan paramedics, responded to a call for cardiac arrest for a 73-year-old woman in the Upper East Side apartment just after 12:30 p.m on Thursday, according to the FDNY. Unfortunately, that’s where Ivana Trump lived. She was pronounced dead at the scene, the NYPD said.

Ivana Trump was found unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of a set of stairs in her apartment, according to police sources. 

The police also investigated if she fell and whether the fall was the catalyst in any way to her death, the sources added. A medical examiner will determine her cause of death, police said, as reported by ABC news.

In a statement on his platform Truth Social, the former president remembered Ivana as 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," he wrote. "She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her."

Ivanka Trump remembered her mother as "brilliant, charming, passionate and wickedly funny."

"She lived life to the fullest -- never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance," Ivanka Trump said on Twitter while sharing a childhood photo of herself with her mother. "I will miss her forever and will keep her memory alive in our hearts always."

Ivana Trump, born Ivana Marie Zelníčková, grew up under communist rule in the former Czechoslovakia. She left in the 1970s and married Donald Trump in 1977.
