Michelle Obama has shared a lovely picture of cuddling with daughter Malia as she turned 23 on the 4th of July. Michelle captioned the picture with, “Happy Fourth of July, everybody—and also, happy 23rd birthday to our dear Malia,”
Even the former President Barack Obama did not hold back and dedicated a very lovely post to his daughter Malia.
“It’s been a few years since we took this photo, but I know that she’ll always be my sweet little girl whose big hugs and big heart always lift my day. Malia, we love you, and are so excited to see what this year will bring for you!” Meanwhile, her dad shared a throwback pic of the pair when Malia was still a toddler.
“Happy Fourth of July, and Happy Birthday, Malia! It’s been such a joy to watch you begin to make your way in the world with poise, grace, and humour,” he wrote, adding, “I miss the days when you thought the fireworks were for you.”
While she and her younger sister Sasha, 20, have remained largely out of the spotlight, their dad recently opened up about the Obama family household, saying he was the “brunt of every joke.” The politician, 59, appeared on the July 1 episode of Dax Shephard and Monica Padman‘s Armchair Expert podcast and chatted about the dynamics between his daughters and Michelle, saying the girls take her much more seriously.
