With Donald Trump firmly in the lead in the polls, Americans everywhere are already preparing for Melania to take over as our country’s new first lady.

Throughout her husband’s campaign, Melania has mostly stayed out of the spotlight and has remained a mysterious figure of elegance: until now. This week, new details came out about Melania’s past that are giving us a better idea of who our future first lady really is.

Born in 1970 in south-eastern Slovenia, Melania would be the first foreign-born first lady in nearly 200 years. According to Daily Mail, Melania was the daughter of a card-carrying communist. Her dad, Viktor Knavs, was a listed member of the League of Communist, and Melania was brought up in squalor in a small industrial town. Despite their daughter’s wealth, her parents still reside in that town to this day.

In the 1970s, only about 5% of Slovenians were communists, but being in the party offered Melania’s family certain advantages.

“Viktor was in the Party which helped you to get government jobs or higher positions,” a relative in the village recounted. The relative was not sure if Viktor was a “true believer,” but she added, “maybe he was just being pragmatic. Being in the Party made things a bit easier and meant he could help his family.”

“He had connections,” she continued. “He could always get little luxuries or essentials like car parts that other people couldn’t get their hands on.”

The family’s real ticket out of adversity, however, was Melania’s amazing looks. She first began modeling at the age of 5, and eventually reached the heights of her profession, which brought her to Trump’s eye.
