White House unveils first lady Melania Trump's official portrait


The White House released the first official portrait of first lady Melania Trump on Monday.

The first lady's Director of Communications Stephanie Grisham took to Twitter to share the news shortly before the White House released an official statement.

"I am honored to serve in the role of First Lady, and look forward to working on behalf of the American people over the coming years," Melania Trump said in a statement released with the portrait.

The former professional model's arms are crossed, and she opted for a black jacket and black scarf.

The 46-year-old has been living in New York City with their 10-year-old son, Barron. Melania Trump and Barron will join President Donald Trump in Washington D.C. at the close of the first son's school year.

Melania Trump is just the second foreign-born first lady. She was born in Slovenia and became a U.S. citizen in 2006. Louisa Adams, the wife of America's sixth President John Quincy Adams, was the first foreign-born first lady.
