Fascinating Facts About First Lady Melania Trump
3. She's the first Catholic in the White House in more than 56 years
Melania is a practicing Catholic, and she’s just the second Catholic First Lady – the first being Jacqueline Kennedy.
Even more interesting, because her father was a member of the Communist Party in Slovenia, which controlled the country at the time, her family had to maintain the outward appearance of being atheists. Melania was thus baptized in secret, reportedly on June 14, 1970 – her husband’s birthday.
