Michelle Obama is, without doubt, one of the most popular First Ladies of the United States. The American lawyer, previously, revealed that she had a hard time raising her two daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha, when Barack Obama was still in office. Michelle even divulged that the entire family had to pretend all the “craziness” plaguing them are not existing when they were still living in the White House.

The mom of two, in an interview with Marie Claire, revealed that only Malia Ann and Natasha can make her cry. Michelle’s mom, Marian Shields Robinson, told the entertainment publication she can never recall a time when the former FLOTUS called her in tears.

This, then, prompted reporter Abigail Pesta to ask what makes her shed tears. “My girls. Thinking about them, how much I love them, wondering what they're doing, how they're feeling ... it moves me,” Michelle Obama revealed.

In July, Michelle divulged to Gayle King about how she and former President Barack Obama raised their daughters when he was still the most powerful man in the U.S. “For eight years, it was like, ‘Yup, yup, your dad’s president. That doesn’t have anything to do with you. Just take your lil’ butt to school. Yes, you have security, just ignore them. They’re not here for you,’” she told Gayle for “CBS This Morning.”

Michelle Obama even joked she is surprised that Malia Ann and Natasha still have friends since they were surrounded with armed guards all the time during their dad’s presidency from 2009 to 2017. She suggested that raising two girls in the public eye was “stressful” for her. “Not only were we parenting teenagers, but we were parenting teenagers where, every Saturday night, you had to worry about whether your kid was gonna wind up on Page Six,” Michelle said before hinting that they have in “so much less stress” after leaving the White House.

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama shared a rare family photo on Twitter to celebrate Thanksgiving. “From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving,” she posted, alongside a photo of herself, Barack, Sasha and Malia. The former president, on the other hand, shared a snap of the whole family giving out food items. “Today, we give thanks for our blessings, give back to those around us, and enjoy some time — and turkey, and maybe a little football — with the ones we love. From the Obama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving,” Barack Obama wrote in the caption.
