SEVNICA, Slovenia (NBC) -

The next First lady of the United States will be only the second born overseas. Today, people celebrated in Melania Trump's hometown of Sevnica in the southern European nation of Slovenia.

Friends and local officials in the town where she was born said they hoped she would return to her hometown when she becomes First Lady. Some people in the town flew U.S. flags next to the Slovenian flag. Others watched news of the election returns in restaurants and bars.

The incoming First Lady left Sevnica and moved to the capital of Slovenia before pursuing a modeling career abroad. Melania Trump also speaks five languages.

The last First Lady who was not a native-born American was Louisa Adams, the wife of John Quincy Adams.
