On Wednesday, President Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana Trump, celebrated her birthday. Her daughter, Ivanka Trump, took to Instagram and Twitter to pay tribute to her with a sweet message.

Ivanka posted a throwback photo of herself as a child hugging her mother. She included some of her mother’s wise words in the caption of the post.

On her post, Ivanka Trump wrote:

"Mom, you are a source of joy and wonder to all who know you. I love you very much! Happy birthday! (Or in your own words: 'Never older, it just takes longer getting ready every morning!')."

Today, I bow to you even deeper, as I better understand just how hard a job it is to be a great mom! You inspire now, as you did then. I love you."

Two years ago in October, Ivana told “CBS Sunday Morning's” Jim Axelrod that the president had asked her for advice about using Twitter. She revealed her answer saying, "I said, 'I think you should tweet. It's a new way, a new technology. And if you want to get your words across rightly, without telling the New York Times, which is going to twist every single word of yours, this is how you get your message out."

It appears she might’ve been the reason for the president tweeting so much.
