Marla Maples was born in Cohutta, Georgia on October 27, 1963 as an only child in a strict Baptist household. In high school she was athletic and popular, playing on the basketball team and crowned homecoming queen during her senior year.
After high school, Maples entered a variety of beauty pageants and became first-runner up in the 1984 Miss Georgia USA contest.
Marla Maples moved to New York City in 1985 to become an actress. However, her professional ambitions were overpowered by her personal ones when, at the age of 26, she met real estate mogul Donald Trump in 1989 and began a torrid affair while he was still married to first wife Ivana Trump. Amid much tabloid gossip, the Trumps divorced, and Donald married Maples in 1993, shortly after the birth of their daughter Tiffany Trump. Since divorcing Trump in 1999, Maples has continued acting and working as a television personality.
