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!

Looking beautiful and slim on her wedding day in a long white gown designed by French designer Delphine Manivet, Allen announced that she and Cooper were having a baby and that she was already four-months pregnant! “It’s beautiful and she is pregnant … it is something wonderful. For me and for her too, when you’re pregnant you want to show that, but also be respectful, so the dress was perfect for her for the moment,” Manivet told the British newspaper ‘The Telegraph.’
Prior to the wedding there was talk going around that Allen had to alter her gorgeous wedding gown to fit her new full figure, but Manivet says she knew in January that Allen wanted to get pregnant. After all, this was not the first time that Lily Allen had been expecting. The years 2008 and 2010 proved to be discouraging for Allen after she experienced two miscarriages. It seems as though life took a turn for the better with the start or 2011. Lily Allen is now a married woman and mother-to-be!
