Iriana (also called Iriana Jokowi, born 1 October 1963) is the First Lady of Indonesia since 20 October 2014 and the wife of the current President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo.

Early career[edit]

Iriana graduated from State High School No. 3, Solo in 1983.[1] She then studied at Muhammadiyah University of Surakarta for six semesters, but left without a degree to marry Joko Widodo.[2]

While her husband served as governor of Jakarta, Iriana was appointed as leader of the Family Welfare Education organisation (Pembinaan Kesejahteraan Keluarga or PKK), a national women's movement in Indonesia. She also served as leader of the PKK in Surakarta from 2005 to 2012 when her husband was mayor of Surakarta.[3]

Family[edit]

Iriana married Joko Widodo in Solo, Central Java, on 24 December 1986. They have two sons: Gibran Rakabuming (born 1 October 1987) and Kaesang Pangarep (born 25 December 1994) and one daughter named Kahiyang Ayu (born 20 April 1991).[4]
