The first daughter is growing up fast. 17-year-old Malia Obama is graduating high school Friday in Washington D.C.
At a speech he delivered last week, President Obama told the audience: “My daughter leaving me is just breaking my heart. If there are any parents here, I hope you can give me some pointers on how not to cry too much at the ceremony and embarrass her.”
On his appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon Thursday, the president said he would be getting a pair of sunglasses ready for the ceremony, just in case he couldn’t stop the tears.
In January, he revealed that neither he nor Michelle would be speaking at the event and that no press would be allowed to photograph the graduation from Sidwell High School. Instead they wanted the event to be a private, family affair.
“Malia’s school asked if I wanted to speak at commencement and I said no,” ABC quoted him as saying earlier this year. “I’m going to be wearing dark glasses … and I’m going to cry.”
But while he may be emotional, we don’t think they have anything to worry about — the president and first lady have done a wonderful job raising two beautiful girls. Malia is headed to Harvard in 2017. Meanwhile, Sasha, who turns 15 Friday, will finish out her final two years of high school in D.C.
We can’t say it enough – the White House just won’t be the same without our amazing First Family.
