A day in the life of Melania Trump: She does not sleep in Donald Trump's bedroom and is up before his 5:30am wakeup time
The 48-year-old former model leads quite a busy day-to-day life since she is always seen either attending some social event or being at her husband's side
Melania Trump, the current first lady of the US, is one of the most watched people in the world. Ever since Donald Trump became POTUS, Melania has been living with him at the White House, attending scores of public events and parties all around the world.
The 48-year-old former model leads quite a busy day-to-day life, as can be made out from her from her regular attendance at some social event or being at her husband's side, flying all around the country to support all sorts of social causes that are extremely close to her heart. The mother-of-one also tries to keep her life as private as possible when she's not out attending events in public.
Her private life has always been quite a mystery to her followers, who have often wondered what the FLOTUS does on her off days at the White House when she is not bogged down by official visits or social engagements. She has previously been accused of "enjoying the fruits of the American country" by a certain TV host while in the middle of a spat.
Express reports that the First Lady sleeps in a different bedroom than her husband Donald Trump, and she wakes up a little earlier than the president’s 5:30 am wake up time. As per two of her close friends, who spoke to the Washington Post, after waking up, Melania gets her son, 12-year-old Barron Trump ready for school. She calls herself a "full-time mom", and tries to spend as much time as she can with her son.
Moreover, Melania considers taking care of her son Barron as her first and foremost job, and apart from getting him ready for school in the mornings, the doting mom also helps him with his homework, as well as packs his breakfast for him, sometimes even lunch. When she lived in New York, Melania was also known to drop and pick up her son at school, where she also attended academic events, clearly portraying the amount of attention she paid to her son's life.
The First Lady's Twitter page also reveals a lot about her personal life: for example, she earlier used to share regular updates and pictures of her everyday breakfasts, which mostly comprised of platters of fruit and healthy green smoothies, and in a previous interview with GQ, Melania had revealed that she makes it a point to eat seven pieces of fruit a day. However, she too is no stranger to cheat days, and on various occasions, she would post pictures of stacks of pastries and sweet treats for breakfast.
Another thing which Melania has shared with followers on social media even before she became the FLOTUS is her daily morning workout sessions. The former model revealed that she makes sure to sneak in a light workout on an everyday basis, and she sometimes uses little tricks such as walking around the house wearing ankle weights to achieve her fitness goals.
And when she's not caring for her son or busy playing tennis, Melania is busy performing her duties as the First Lady, a job that includes planning events and hosting them at the White House. She is also majorly involved in championing her “Be Best” initiative, which is a public awareness campaign focused on the well-being of youths and combatting cyberbullying.
And although she believes she's better off with living her life as a private person, she recently caught the attention of the media after she called out an anonymous New York Times op-ed writer who criticized her husband. The former Slovenian model lashed out at the writer, who remains anonymous, and slammed his “cowardly actions”, for his claim that he/she was part of some “resistance” against Trump in the White House.
Melania’s full statement read: “Freedom of speech is an important pillar of our nation’s founding principles and a free press is important to our democracy. The press should be fair, unbiased and responsible. Unidentified sources have become the majority of the voices people hear about in today’s news. People with no names are writing our nation’s history."
“Words are important, and accusations can lead to severe consequences. If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves. To the writer of the oped — you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions.”
