'Heartbroken' Ivanka Trump Mourns Mother Ivana as Details Emerge on Death

Ivanka Trump mourned her mother Ivana Trump on social media Thursday as new details about circumstances of the 73-year-old's death emerged.

Ivana Trump, the Czech-born ex-wife of former President Donald Trump and the mother of Ivanka, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, was found dead at her New York City home on Thursday afternoon. Ivana's body was discovered following a report of cardiac arrest at her address, with law enforcement officials saying later in the day that there did "not appear to be any criminality" involved.

"Heartbroken by the passing of my mother," Ivanka tweeted hours after the death was announced. "Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate and wickedly funny. She lived life to the fullest — never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance."

"I will miss her forever and will keep her memory alive in our hearts always," she added alongside a heart emoji.

Although Ivana Trump's official cause of death had not been determined at the time of publication, a New York City Fire Department spokesperson told Newsweek that a call about a "report of cardiac arrest" was received at 12:39 p.m., with Ivana soon being declared dead on arrival.

In a statement obtained by Newsweek, a New York City Police Department spokesperson said that officers responded to Ivana's home at approximately 12:40 p.m. following the 911 call.

"Upon arrival, officers observed a 73 year-old female unconscious and unresponsive," the spokesperson said. "EMS responded to the location and pronounced the victim deceased at the scene. There does not appear to be any criminality. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death."

Donald Trump reacted to the death of his first wife by calling her a "a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life" in a statement posted to his Truth Social platform.

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

In addition to Ivanka's tweet, Ivana's three children responded to the death of their mother in a joint statement issued shortly after the former president announced the news.

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump," reads the joint statement, which Eric Trump posted to Truth Social alongside a photo of the Trump family in the 1980s. "Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend."

"Ivana Trump was a survivor," it continues. "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."
