Melania Trump rang in her first birthday as First Lady of the United States in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. President Donald Trump’s wife turned 47 on April 26 and celebrated her special day attending a luncheon for Senate spouses at the National Gallery of Art. Melania looked characteristically stylish for the occasion wearing a navy coat dress that featured a croc-embossed belt. Barron Trump’s mom styled her hair down with her signature blowout.
Ahead of the luncheon, the first lady tweeted, “Looking forward to today's Senate spouses luncheon at the National Gallery of Art. A wonderful group doing great things for our country!” Following the outing, Melanie shared a photo of herself speaking at a podium at the event, which she captioned, “I was delighted to be the guest of honor @ Senate spouses luncheon. Thank you everyone for their kind words & support.”
During the day, the former model and her husband also welcomed teachers to the White House to recognize the National Teacher of the Year along with Teacher of the Year from each state and territory. Melanie took to Instagram to share a photo from the gathering in the Oval Office writing, “Emotional moment @ National Teacher of the Year Award @WhiteHouse Congratulations to all wonderful teachers!”
While the first lady spent the day working, members of the Trump family took to social media to send warm wishes to Melania on her birthday. Posting a photo from the 2017 presidential inaugural ball, Ivanka Trump tweeted, "Happy Birthday to our First Lady (and my incredible step-mom!) Melania Trump 🎉 A wonderful example of kindness and grace for us all! @FLOTUS.” Meanwhile the President shared a birthday card featuring himself and his wife walking in the inaugural parade, which he simply captioned, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our @FLOTUS, Melania!”
