Ivana Trump was seen strolling Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Tuesday and flashed a peace sign as she walked.
Ivana, the president’s first wife and the mother of his three eldest children, walked with her ex-husband-turned-ex-boyfriend Rossano Rubicondi as they enjoyed some of the mild fall weather that New York has been experiencing in recent days.
Ivana, 71, and Rossano, 48, were both dressed in head-to-toe black as they walked arm in arm.

The former model kept warm in a black winter coat with a luxe fur collar and cuffs, which she wore over black straight-leg dress pants.
She topped off her look with her beloved Lady Dior mini bag.
Ivana’s platinum blonde hair was pulled back in her signature beehive with her bangs framing her face, the bottom half of which was covered by a polka dot face mask.
Rossano matched Ivana by wearing a black jacket, pants, sweater and face mask.
The former couple dated for six years before they tied the knot in 2008 during a lavish $3 million ceremony at Mar-A-Lago, the Palm Beach estate owned by none other than Ivana’s second ex-husband, Donald Trump.

But just eight months after their Midsummer Night’s Dream-themed nuptials, Ivana and Rossano announced their divorce.
Rossano was Ivana’s fourth husband after Alfred Winklmayr, Donald, and Riccardo Mazzucchelli.
She shared her reaction to the election in an interview with People as her ex-husband remains adamant that he was cheated and refuses to concede.
‘He’s not a good loser,’ Ivana said of Trump. ‘He doesn’t like to lose, so he’s going to fight and fight and fight.’
But she said she hopes Trump will face reality soon.
‘He’s not a good loser,’ Ivana said of her ex-husband (pictured together in 2014). ‘He doesn’t like to lose, so he’s going to fight and fight and fight’
Ivana said her three children Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka (pictured in 2015) are doing ‘fine’ despite their father’s election loss. ‘I think they enjoyed being around Donald and running the election and seeing what will happen, but now it is – thank god – over,’ she said
President Trump still appears to be refusing to concede and on Monday tweeted that he had in fact ‘won the election’
‘He has to go and declare that he lost,’ Ivana said, adding: ‘I just want this whole thing to be over with, one way or the other. I really don’t care.’
Ivana said her children, Eric, his brother Don Jr and Ivanka are doing ‘fine’ – and she can’t wait for them to leave the White House with their dad.
‘I think they enjoyed being around Donald and running the election and seeing what will happen, but now it is – thank god – over,’ Ivana said.
‘I’m not really sure what they are going to be up to. I just want them to be able to live their normal lives.
Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana Trump (left in September) last week urged him to accept the fact that he lost last week’s election to Joe Biden and move on with his life – as the president refuses to concede and insists that the contest was ‘stolen’ from him by voter fraud
‘Not the Washington life and all that, just in New York or wherever they’re going to be and just live their normal lives.’
Ivana also predicted that her husband’s career in politics has come to an end.
‘I don’t think he has a choice,’ she said. ‘He’s going to go down to Palm Beach and play golf and live the normal life, I think. This is the best choice for what he can do.’
‘He hates to be a loser, that I’m sure of. But if he loses, he loses. He has plenty of money, places to go and live in and enjoy his life.’
Ivana, a businesswoman and former model, was married to Donald for 15 years from 1977 to 1992.

Who is Ivana Trump and where was she born?
Donald Trump’s first wife was born Ivana Zelníčková in Zlín, Czechoslovakia.
She took up skiing at the age of four, and encouraged by her father, she progressed to join the junior national ski team and through the sport, she had the opportunity to travel beyond the Soviet-era communist boundaries of what was then the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic.
She moved to Prague for a masters degree in physical education, and while studying she married her friend Alfred Winklmayr in 1971, despite dating another man, Jiři Syrovatka, since 1967.
The marriage was purely to facilitate getting an Austrian passport so that she could leave Communist Czechoslovakia without defection.
It meant she could retain the right to return to visit her parents, and her passport came through in 1972 – the same year as she completed her masters.
The following year, she obtained an absentee divorce from Alfred Winklmayr in Los Angeles, where he had moved to teach skiing.
She then started a relationship with the lyricist and playwright Jiři Staidl who was killed in a car accident in 1973.
After his death, Ivana moved to Canada to live with Jiři Syrovatka, who had defected and owned a ski boutique in Montreal.
She lived in Montreal for two years where she continued to improve her English by taking night courses at McGill University and also worked as a model and a ski instructor.
In 1976, she met Donald Trump in New York on a modeling trip, after being sent to the city to help promote the 1976 Summer Olympics, which were held in Montreal.
The married and had three children, and she became a naturalized US citizen in 1988.
