Confirming her death, her former husband took to his social media platform, Truth Social, he penned: "I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City.

"She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life.

"Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!"

Meanwhile, her children said in a statement: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump.

"Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and a caring mother and friend. Ivana Trump was a survivor.

"She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination.

"She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren."

The former President and Ivana married in 1977 and she held senior positions within the Trump Organisation.

Despite once being happy, the pair soon faced difficulties after Donald's affair with Marla Maples became public and their messy divorce was officially granted in 1992.
