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!
