Michelle Obama Says ‘They Are Bringing Grown Men Home’ As She Gives Update On Daughters Malia & Sasha’s Personal Lives
It looks like the Obama daughters are all grown up!
Malia, 23, and Sasha Obama, 20, were just 10 and 8 years old, when their father, Barack Obama, 60, was elected as president of the United States in 2008; and as the saying goes, time flies by!
On Tuesday (Apr.20) during an interview, former first lady, Michelle Obama, 58, gave an update on the Obama daughters now that they have gone off to college and officially left the nest. Michelle Obama said Sasha– who is currently in college– and Malia are “doing well” on their own, and praised them for being “just amazing young women” in general.
“It was an extra special treat to have them. That little bit of time. Because being with them as adults, it’s fun! I love them at every age.”
“They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home. Before it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”
When asked how the Obama daughters adjusted after Barack Obama’s presidency ended in January 2017, Michelle said that she and her husband strived to prepare their daughters as much as possible for the transition. She explained,
“I listened to what my mother said when she was raising us. She said, ‘I’m not raising babies, I’m raising real people to be out in the world.’ And I kept that in mind with the girls.”
“I mean, they wouldn’t always be in that bubble of the White House, so they had to learn to make their beds. They had to learn how to drive. They had to learn how to be compassionate, independent, responsible people so that they entered the world as responsible, compassionate, capable people. And I think they are amazing young women because of that.”
