Michelle Obama Talks Daughters Sasha And Malia Being All Grown Up And ‘Bringing Grown Men Home’

The Obama girls are all grown up! Who can forget the historic moment that former President Barack Obama won the presidential election in 2008 and we witnessed their beautiful family ascend to the White House? From day one, Barack and Michelle’s daughters Sasha and Malia were praised for their beauty and poise as young girls and now as young women, they have become it girls, due to their effortless style.

Now and then, we will see the Obama girls out and about like most recently when they were spotted hiking in L.A. Sasha, 20 is reportedly attending the University of Southern California after transferring from the University of Michigan and had fans riled up after she appeared in a few of her friend’s TikTok videos.

Malia, 23, graduated from Harvard University and reportedly landed a job writing for Donald Glover’s new TV series. Now, their mother has provided everyone with an update on their love lives. Michelle appeared on The Ellen Show and gushed over her daughters growing up.

“Now they're bringing grown men home,” she said. "Now they have boyfriends and real lives and all that stuff. They have grown up right before our very eyes and they are doing well.”

When it comes to raising her daughters, Michelle took a page out of her mother’s book. From the time they were little until now, the former First Lady kept in mind that she was raising “real people” in the world.

“I listened to what my mother said when she was raising us,” she said. “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.”

She continued, “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.”

We couldn’t agree anymore!
