Meghan Markle isn't the only celeb celebrating a milestone birthday today (40). Former President Barack Obama just turned 60, and Michelle Obama marked the occasion by giving the world a new glimpse of Barack having a candid and goofy moment with her and their adult daughters Malia, 23, and Sasha, 20.
'Of all of your accomplishments, I know that being a present, loving father to our girls tops them all. Thank you for never letting the weight of the world get in the way of being a wonderful husband and father. Happy 60th birthday, @BarackObama! 💕' Michelle tweeted along with the pic.
Barack spoke to InStyle in November about the most 'badass' qualities of Michelle, Malia, and Sasha. He answered honestly, starting with his wife: 'I think people know Michelle well enough to know how amazing she can be as a public speaker. They probably are less aware of what it’s like to work out with Michelle when she’s really in her groove,' he said. 'And sometimes that includes her boxing. You don’t want to get in the way when she’s working on a bag—including some kicks. There’s force there.'
Then he spoke about his youngest daughter Sasha: 'Sasha is, as Malia describes it, completely confident about her own take on the world and is not cowed or intimidated—and never has been—by anybody’s titles, anybody’s credentials,' he said. 'If she thinks something’s wrong or right, she will say so. When she was 4, 5, 6 years old, once she made a decision, she would dig in and couldn’t be steered off it. I write about it in the book, how we were trying to get her to taste caviar when we were visiting Russia. She was like, 'Mnn-nnh. No. Sorry. That looks slimy. It’s nasty. I’m not going to do it—even if I’ve got to give up dessert.' And that part of her character has always been there.'
He finished with his oldest child, Malia: 'And Malia, she is just buoyant. She’s somebody who enjoys people, enjoys life, and enjoys conversation. She’s never bored, which is a badass quality that can take you places.'
