The moment that President Barack Obama met former First Lady Michelle Obama, he was attracted to her intelligence, her commitment to caring for people in need, and as he wrote in his book Dreams from My Father, it did not hurt that she is gorgeous. Back in the 1960s, women who were not married at age 27 were called “old maids,” a negative image that draws up the negative mental picture of the card game of the same name. Now, all that has changed.
Fathers imprint their daughters with much of their self-confidence if they are doing it right. They also give them a role model in case they even choose to marry, one that says strong women deserve their husband’s respect. In his book, A Promised Land he wrote:
‘To Michelle—my love and life’s partner.’
Former First Lady Michelle Obama was also that sort of role model, President Obama wrote in his book.
‘Seeing them grow up into the intelligent, strong, and compassionate young women they’ve become has been the greatest joy of my life. I’m reminded constantly that there’s no place in the world I’d rather be than with Miche and our girls—and it’s why I’ve dedicated my memoir to them.’
The Obamas have every right to be proud of raising two daughters in the White House. Michelle Obama said:
‘Happy #FathersDay to all the dads out there—especially the one and only @BarackObama! Our daughters couldn’t have asked for a better role model. We’re so lucky to have you in our lives.’Twitter world went crazy when they saw this beautiful photo. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
