The Truth About Tiffany Trump's Incredible Transformation

Tiffany Trump had a very different upbringing from her famous siblings, as she was raised by her mother Marla Maples in California. Despite this separation, she appears to have forged close relationships with her brothers and sisters. Although Tiffany's relationship with father Donald Trump may have seemed strained in the past, the law school graduate has apparently become indispensable to the former president. It's also likely that Tiffany's law school experience helped to prepare her for life in the spotlight alongside her famous family members.

In September 2020, Tiffany became more vocal politically in support of her father, showing a growing confidence in the public arena. Sharing an excerpt from a speech she gave in support of her dad's presidential campaign, Tiffany posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, "This election, I urge you to transcend political boundaries — to make your judgment based on results and not rhetoric. This is a fight for freedom versus oppression, for opportunity versus stagnation, a fight to keep America true to America."

While Tiffany may have taken longer than her siblings to embrace fame, she appears to have started forging her own path since graduating from law school. From her truly luxurious life as a Trump to her idyllic wedding at Mar-a-Lago, this is the truth about Tiffany Trump's incredible transformation.

Tiffany Trump was born into the spotlight

From the moment Tiffany Trump was born, she was already thrust into the media spotlight. Her mother, Marla Maples, had an affair with Donald Trump, who was married to Ivana Trump at the time. The press caught wind of "The Donald" and Maples's affair, and the story blew up into a full-blown scandal. Donald and Ivana got divorced, then the New York real estate mogul married his mistress.

Trump's second marriage and Tiffany's birth became fodder for the tabloid headlines. The scandal had a large impact on Tiffany's life, though she had been too young to understand what was going on during those earliest years.

Former president Trump confessed he might not have married Maples if the media scandal over his affair had not happened. In a 1994 interview with ABC. "My life was so good in so many ways," Donald explained. "The business was so great ... a beautiful girlfriend, a beautiful wife, a beautiful everything. Life was just a bowl of cherries."

Tiffany's parents divorced when she was young

Marla Maples raised Tiffany Trump as a single mother, as she and Donald Trump separated after four years of marriage and divorced in 1999. Maples has confirmed that she was the primary parent in Tiffany's daily life. Trump's second wife told People in April 2016, "Her daddy is a good provider with education and such, but as far as time, it was just me. Her father wasn't able to be there with day-to-day skills as a parent."

While Tiffany was growing up, Maples's main focus was raising her daughter, and the two are very close. Tiffany talked about her mom during an interview with People in 2016. Trump's youngest daughter said, "Growing up in California, we were always together, driving me to school, carpooling, singing songs, dancing around, me making fun of her dance moves."

Tiffany revealed to People that her mom moved them away from New York to get out of the spotlight. Tiffany told the outlet, "So, she wanted me to have a chance to have a normal childhood. As normal as possible. I think that she did well in that."

She looked up to her big sister, Ivanka Trump

Tiffany Trump has idolized her sister Ivanka Trump from an early age. Tiffany has called Ivanka her "best friend" and posted a photo of the two together with a birthday message to her BFF and only sister on Instagram. Tiffany posted on Instagram, "Wishing my big sister and best friend a happy birthday...I love you so much!@ivankatrump."  

The strong sisterly bond appears to go both ways. Ivanka told People in 2016, "She's my little sister! I've been close to Tiffany her whole life, and I really love her." The Daily Mail also reported that Ivanka helped her little sister get an internship with Vogue during Tiffany's college years. 

But Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen painted a different story of the Trump sisters. In his tell-all book, "Disloyal: A Memoir," Cohen said big sister Ivanka "joined the family's 'casual cruelty' toward Tiffany." Cohen claimed Ivanka was cruel to her little sister to guard her position as the favorite child. The Mercury News reported on the claims made by Cohen, saying that Ivanka "jealously guarded her position as Trump's favorite and surrogate, even at the expense of her vulnerable younger sister."

Tiffany is different from her siblings

Nearing the end of her father's term in the White House, The Washingtonian did a feature on Tiffany Trump in 2019 while she was attending Georgetown Law School. The magazine reported that Tiffany "liked to keep a low profile," and if she had a reputation around the campus, it was for "seeming as un-Trump-like as possible." Tiffany is different from her siblings Ivanka, Donald Jr., Eric, and even Barron, as Tiffany grew up outside New York City, away from the competitive Trump family environment. Her mother, Marla Maples, told The Washingtonian, "She understands the life she was born into and is grateful."

Donald Trump's youngest daughter appears to lean a little more liberal than the rest of the family, too. During the George Floyd riots in summer 2020, Tiffany was the only Trump family member to participate in the "Blackout Tuesday" social media event. According to the New York Daily News, Tiffany even dated a Democrat while she was in college. Her former beau, Ross Mechanic, was a registered Democrat. But her life looks like it's on a different track these days.

She hit some major milestones

It's undeniable that Tiffany Trump has an exciting future waiting for her. In May 2020, the daughter of Marla Maples and Donald Trump graduated from Georgetown Law School. Tiffany's mom celebrated the occasion, telling CNN, "I'm so grateful. She has worked so hard." Donald posted about Tiffany's success on X, writing, "Just what I need is a lawyer in the family."

On Donald Trump's final day as president in January 2021, Tiffany and boyfriend Michael Boulos announced their engagement in the White House Rose Garden. Boulos popped the question with a 13-carat diamond ring, estimated to be worth more than $1 million dollars, which is perhaps unsurprising given how much Tiffany Trump's fiancé is worth. Tiffany has been considered the "poor" member of the Trump family for most of her life, with an estimated net worth of approximately $10 million. In comparison, the youngest Trump daughter's wealth is far less than that of her older brothers Donald Jr. and Eric, who each have an estimated net worth of $350 million. Ivanka, meanwhile, is reportedly worth a whopping $800 million, which pretty much eclipses Tiffany's meagre $10 million. Although it's also worth noting that, after marriage, Tiffany's net worth will have evolved significantly.

Having dropped a significant amount of cash on Tiffany's engagement ring, it's clear that Boulos has no money troubles. While Boulos' personal wealth is estimated to be around $20 million, he has been described as a billionaire with significant familial wealth.

Tiffany wed Michael Boulos at Mar-a-Lago

Tiffany Trump tied the knot with Michael Boulos in November 2022, with the wedding taking place at her father Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. For the occasion, Tiffany wore a jaw-dropping, floor-length, glittering gown, which featured long sleeves, by fashion designer Elie Saab. Speaking to People, Tiffany's mom Marla Maples said of the incredible dress, "It's a Lebanese American wedding, so we were so happy to have [Lebanese designer] Elie Saab create the magic."

The couple was joined at their nuptials by 250 guests, including all of Tiffany's siblings. Tiffany's mom emphasized that the wedding was a happy event, despite any stresses or strains that may have been taking place before the big day. As she told the publication, "We are focused on this sacred union and welcoming beloved friends and family, not on politics."

Tiffany shared photos from the wedding on social media, captioning a carousel of pictures on Instagram, "The most magical day." It would seem that, for one day at least, Tiffany was the center of attention, and no-one could outshine her custom-made gown, which was fit for a Disney princess.

Donald has relied on Tiffany in Ivanka's political absence

While Tiffany Trump may have lived much of her life in the shadow of her older sister Ivanka Trump, family dynamics may have changed amidst Donald Trump's decision to run for president again in 2024. Following her father's announcement, Ivanka shared an Instagram story (via X), revealing she had no intention of getting involved in politics for another term. "While I will always love and support my father," she wrote, "going forward I will do so outside the political arena." While Ivanka has stepped away from her father's political endeavors, Tiffany seems to have stepped up to the plate.

When Donald gave a speech at Mar-a-Lago in April 2023 following his New York hush-money indictment, Tiffany was in attendance while Ivanka was nowhere to be seen. Of Tiffany's decision to stand by her father at the event, a source suggested to Page Six, "Tiffany is trying to be the supportive daughter ... This could be her way to get closer to her father."

When the Trumps rang in 2024, they celebrated with another party at Mar-a-Lago, and once again, Ivanka didn't attend. Meanwhile, Tiffany and her husband were photographed cozily posing with Donald, suggesting that Marla Maples's daughter may have a better relationship with her dad than ever before.

Tiffany is a delegate at the 2024 Republican National Convention

While Ivanka Trump made it clear that she wouldn't be supporting Donald Trump's campaign to run for the presidency again, Tiffany Trump made herself available for her father's political ventures. In May 2024, it was announced that Tiffany would be joining her siblings Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump as a Florida delegate at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee in July 2024.

It was initially reported that Donald's youngest child Barron would also serve as a delegate alongside Tiffany, but this was later rebutted by Melania Trump. The former first lady's office told AP in a statement, "While Barron is honored to have been chosen as a delegate by the Florida Republican Party, he regretfully declines to participate due to prior commitments."

In Ivanka's absence, Tiffany appears to have found her place in Donald's inner circle as a keen supporter of his presidential campaign. While it's unclear what Tiffany's long term political ambitions are, considering her freshly earned law degree, it's possible she may take on an even bigger role alongside her father in the future.
