Melania Trump has been quietly renegotiating her prenuptial agreement with her husband, Donald Trump, over the past year, according to insider sources speaking to Page Six.

The move is not an indication that Melania is planning to leave the marriage, but rather a strategic decision influenced by two key factors.

Melania's decision to revisit the prenuptial agreement is reportedly driven by the possibility of Donald Trump returning to the presidency and the looming legal battles that could be both costly and potentially result in imprisonment for him.

These factors have led Melania to take steps to secure her financial future, especially for the sake of their son, Barron.

"Melania is primarily focused on securing a substantial sum for their son, Barron," said the source. She is keen on ensuring that Barron is not treated differently from Donald Trump's children from previous marriages—Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka, and Tiffany.

The new agreement also reportedly includes increased assets in both money and property for Melania.

This is at least the third time that the couple has renegotiated their prenuptial agreement. According to divorce lawyer Bill Beslow, who represented Marla Maples in her 1999 divorce from Donald Trump, there could be mutual needs for a new agreement.

Melania could be leveraging her support in Trump's campaign or legal battles, while Donald might seek certain guarantees from her, such as not writing a book.
