The Early Years
Martha Lindley Blaine Beard was born in 1957 to American parents in the USA. Blaine’s father worked as an executive with IBM World Trades which caused her family to move to Japan when she was just a child.
Blaine, who is naturally blonde, grew up very fast while living in Yokohama; she reached her full height of 5’9” by age 12. Being so tall at an early age and that too in a country like Japan made her very insecure.
Blaine has said in many of her interviews that during her teenage years, she wished to lose “a couple of inches” and have “black hair”, as it would make it easier for her to “fit in”.
The future Trump family member attended the University of Tokyo but opted to drop out to pursue a matrimonial relationship with her then boyfriend.
