10. Ivanka Trump = Best-Selling Author
In addition to her business endeavors, Ivanka is a successful former fashion model and, after publishing a book titled The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life in 2009, a New York Times best-selling author. She is currently working on a follow-up titled “Women Who Work: Redefining the Rules for Success,” which will be released in 2017.
9. Ivanka Trump = Recent Convert To Judaism
Ivanka also underwent an Orthodox conversion to Judaism in 2009. She changed her name to “Yael,” a common Jewish name, and keeps to a kosher diet and religiously observes the Jewish Sabbath, refusing to take so much as a phone call between Friday and Saturday. She married real estate developer Jared Kushner in a Jewish ceremony that same year. The couple have three kids.
8. She’s also BFFs with Chelsea Clinton
Even though the Clintons and the Trumps are America’s top political families and fierce opponents, Ivanka and Chelsea Clinton have been BFFs for years. Chelsea, 36, regards Ivanka as one of her closest friends, and has warned critics of the Trumps for assuming that Ivanka’s privilege and upbringing means she lacks depth. Though the 2016 presidential race looks like it’s going to be a nasty one, the national showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump probably isn’t going to break these two up any time soon.
