Barack Obama and Michelle Obama celebrated Malia’s 24th birthday. On Monday, the ex-POTUS and FLOTUS shared beautiful throwback pics for their daughter, Malia’s Fourth of July birthday.
“Happy birthday, Malia! No matter how sophisticated, accomplished, beautiful, and gracious a young woman you’ve become—you’ll always be my baby. And I will always be here to lift you up,” Barack Obama wrote second to a picture of him holding a little Malia while she grinned for the camera.
Michelle shared the throwbacks and the beautiful posts coming with her loyalty to their daughter, Malia.
In April, their mom, Michelle opened up about her now-grown daughters who have boyfriends and real lives.
“They loved the Jonas Brothers,” she joked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Now they are bringing grown men home. Before it was just pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”
She said that her daughters grew up to be outstanding young women.
“I listened to what my mother said when she was raising us,” she shared. “She told, ‘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 delighted mom added, “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.”
