Vanessa Haydon Trump wiki, bio, age, modelling, married, husband
Wife of Donald Trump Jr. (the eldest son of Donald Trump, the current presidential candidate of the US), Venessa Haydon Trump left her successful career to lead a happy life with Trump Jr. Find out more about her in the brief bio compiled below.
Born on 18th December 1977 in New York to Bonnie and Charles Haydon, Venessa is the elder sister of Veronika. She grew up in the Upper East Manhattan and studied at the Dwight School where she was a tennis star. A childhood friend of her named Shawn Modell has informed the New York Times that Venessa liked to crack a lot of jokes, wore jeans most of the time and focused on a closed-circle friendship.
She had already begun modelling since her childhood days and was signed to Wilhemina Agency, a famous modelling platform. Her mother, in fact, was the owner of Kay Models Agency, so that must have sparked in Venessa the interest to pursue a career in modelling. She later went on to study Psychology at Marymount Manhattan College in New York.
Venessa was earlier a designer, model and actress before marrying Trump Jr. The New York Times states that it was at a fashion show in 2003 when she was introduced to her husband by her now father-in-law. Two years after their meeting, the couple finally married.
She married her husband on 12th November 2005, and the wedding ceremony, held at Palm Beach in Florida, was officiated by her husband's aunt, Maryann Trump Barry, a US Court Appeals judge for the 3rd Circuit. The internet was abuzz with photographs of the happy couple together after their marriage. They have since then had 5 children: Kai Madison (2007), Donald John Trump III (2009), Tristan Milos (2011), Spencer Frederick Trump (2012), and Chloe Sofia Trump (2014).
Venessa is credited by many to have improved her husband's public image by appearing alongside her husband wherever she went and also creating headlines fit for gossip columns. She is also actively involved and serves in her brother-in-law's philanthropic foundation at the executive level, and according to the foundation's website, Venessa and Trump Jr. both have volunteered on Operation Smile's medical mission back in 2008 to Nicaragua.
In 2010, she started her own line of handbags, in view of women who loved to have “elegance, luxury and grace” in clutches, handbags, and pouches. This shows how adeptly she has managed to balance her social life and family life, and also fulfilled her duty towards the society. As of reports, she and her husband are also doing their part for Trump Senior's successful campaign, alongside several other family members.
Venessa is known particularly for her roles in films such as Something's Gotta Give (2003), The Apprentice (2004), and Miss USA (2004).
Some might not know that Venessa's grandfather from her mother's side was Kai Ewans, the Danish jazz musician. She is of mixed ethnicity, and her paternal grandfather and grandmother were of Austrian and Russian heritage, respectively, both Jewish immigrants. Her mother is however of Danish ancestry.
