• Ivana Trump never really got over Donald Trump
  • Donald Trump didn't know what to do with his children
  • Ivana Trump was more hands-on with their kids than Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, previously said that she never really got over her ex-husband.

While speaking with New York Magazine, the mom of three said that this is simply because she thinks she always has chemistry with the POTUS. After all, they were married for several years.

Donald and Ivana were also blessed with three children together, namely Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. While they were growing up, Ivana was the more hands-on parent, and she was also the one who spent more time with their kids.

According to Ivana, the POTUS wasn’t the type of father who would baby talk and canoodle with his children. But the president of the United States would hold and kiss his three children with his ex-wife.

The POTUS also loves Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, but after playing with them for a few minutes, he would give them back to his ex-wife because he had no idea what to do with them.

But now that Donald and Ivana’s kids are all grown up, the POTUS gets to spend more time with them. In fact, he has been working closely with Don Jr. and Ivanka during his ongoing campaign for re-election.

The POTUS was also the one who taught his kids how to be competitive even this meant taking down each other. During the same interview, Ivanka recounted a time when she and her dad went skiing.

When Donald noticed that Ivanka was going ahead of him, he reached his ski pole and pull Ivanka back.

Meanwhile, when the POTUS and Ivana divorced, their children evidently suffered. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Donald said that it was a very tough period for Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.

But Ivana said that she tried her best to be strong for her kids. Even though there were moments wherein she wanted to scream and kill somebody, she tried her best to stay calm especially when they were around.
