BREAKING: Melania Trump announces her mother's passing

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved mother, Amalija."

On Tuesday night, Melania Trump announced her mother's passing. She had been attending her mother's bedside in recent weeks.

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved mother, Amalija," Trump wrote. "Amalija Knavs was a strong woman who always carried herself with grace, warmth, and dignity.  She was entirely devoted to her husband, daughters, grandson, and son-in-law. We will miss her beyond measure and continue to honor and love her legacy."

Knavs was 78 years old. The former First Lady had missed the Christmas celebrations at Mar-a-Lago to care for her mother, and did not reveal a cause of death. However, former President Donald Trump had said that his mother-in-law was "very ill" on New Year's Eve, and that it had been a "tough" time for the family.

"Hopefully she'll be recovering," Trump had said on New Year's Eve. "It's a tough one, a very tough one." 

Knavs was Slovenian, born in 1945, and was a textile worker when she met and married Melania's father, Viktor.
