"She feels there is no better way to honor her late mother than to nurture and love on her own children," the insider added.

Ivanka also took to Instagram to share a tribute for her dad's former wife, writing alongside a carousel of Ivana: "Today marks one year since my mom passed. Her illuminating and immeasurable imprint on our lives remains with us every day. Miss you more than you know mama."

Ivana shared Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric with ex-husband Donald Trump.

Since losing her mom last year after she fell down a flight of stairs inside her New York City home, Ivanka has been prioritizing her own family, choosing to take a step back from politics to focus on husband Jared Kushner and their brood: Arabella Rose, 11, Joseph Frederick, 9, and Theodore James, 7.

"While it has only been a year since Ivana passed, her role as both a remarkable mother and grandmother has left an illuminating and immeasurable impact on their lives and will forever be remembered," the source explained, as Ivanka even accepted a presidential award on her mother's behalf that illuminated Ivana's dedication to Czech culture in October 2022.

Ivana's friend also spoke out on the emotional anniversary, insisting her fatal fall could have been preventable if she wasn't so stubborn.

"It was so unnecessary for her to die," the socialite's best friend Nikki Haskel said in an interview.

The day before Ivana died, Haskel claimed, "I told her it was extremely important to get someone to live in the house with her. I said, 'God forbid you fall down those stairs.'"

Ivana was found the following day unresponsive on her staircase, with her cause of death having been ruled as "blunt force trauma" to her torso.
