Melania Trump has confirmed she’s pregnant, and said she has no choice to abort.
“I have no other option but to abort,” she told reporters after speaking to the press at the White House on Wednesday.
“We have no alternative, and if it is to save my life, we will do everything in our power to do it.
That’s what I believe.”
She said she is pregnant with their first child, a boy, in early 2018.
The first daughter and husband of the Republican President-elect, the 44-year-old first lady has previously been in a relationship with the former model, but has said they were “not compatible” during the presidential election.
The couple’s marriage is the longest of their political careers, with the couple having two children together and seven grandchildren.
Their son Barron was born in January.
Melania Trump is due to be sworn in as the 45th US President on Friday.
