Look who became a teen over the holiday weekend! Barack Obama might have a little more to worry about now that his eldest daughter is in her teens. Malia Obama, 13, celebrated her birthday yesterday on the Fourth of July. How fitting for the daughter of the President of the United States. On January 20th, 2009 Barack Obama assumed office following George W. Bush. In his two years as president, Obama has wowed the American Public with his ability to balance family and professional matters. When asked how he felt about Malia becoming a teenager, Barack told Good Morning America, “Malia and Sasha, for whatever reason, and I think Michelle gets the lion’s share of the credit, they’re smart, they’re funny, but most importantly, they’re kind, they’re respectful, they’re responsible, they’re well-behaved. I could not ask for better kids.”

It will be interesting to see the outcome of Barack Obama’s reelection. If he remains president for a second term this will not be the last birthday that Malia will celebrate as the daughter of the President of the United States. Happy belated Birthday and Fourth of July Malia Obama!

Poppy Montgomery, the 37-year-old busy, beautiful actress from Australia has her hands full with her new baby boy. Jackson Phillip Deveraux who is now three and a half has as much energy as six children, said Montgomery. “I thought I was going to get a girl that wanted manicures, pedicures and would, like, brush my hair. And I got a guy that is jumping off my head and leaping off of tall buildings,” she told PEOPLE Magazine. Regardless of how busy her new addition is keeping her, she and boyfriend Adam Kaufman are considering another child, but not now. Poppy’s new show, Unforgettable, is her “new baby” for the time being.
