Michelle Obama Talks About Her Daughters Transitioning Into Adulthood
Michelle got candid about how much her girls have grown into adults who have moved out of their family home.
The Blast disclosed that the former First Lady got candid about her daughters’ lives as grownups with Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday, April 19.
The “Becoming” writer said she feels “extra lonely” now that Sasha and her elder sister Malia, 23, have left home, and she no longer has a full house.
The “Michelle Obama In Her Own Words” author spoke about having her kids at home during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, saying:
“It was an extra special treat to have them, that little bit of time. Because being with them as adults is, it’s fun! I mean, I love them at every age.”
The mother-of-two called her offspring “amazing young women” who excel in their personal lives. DeGeneres also brought up the first time her guest appeared on the show.
Obama had yet to become president, and Sasha and Malia were ten and eight. Michelle had brought them with her to see The Jonas Brothers perform as they were fans of the boy group.
Michelle said that her daughters are now past the stage of being into pop bands and now bring adult men home. She dished:
“Now they have boyfriends and real lives and all that stuff, but they have grown up right before our very eyes, and they are doing well.”
DeGeneres expressed that Sasha and Malia seem to have adjusted to the reality of life outside the White House, where housekeepers attended to them every day.
Michelle replied that she and Obama did not raise their children with the philosophy of the White House but rather on their own principles. 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.”
The “Believe In The Possibility” author understood that her girls would always be in the “bubble of the White House,” so she ensured to teach them independence.
The proud mother explained that she raised Sasha and Malia to enter adulthood as “responsible, compassionate, capable” women.
