Barack Obama is getting used to being an empty-nester.

While on a promo tour for her new book, “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times,” Michelle Obama opened up about her family’s life, and watching her two daughters, Malia and Sasha grow up.

The former first lady speaks about her daughter’s dating life, and how important it is to explore their options. “I think it’s wonderful. I want them to know what they want and who they are in a relationship. And that takes trying on some people.”

Michelle also says her hubby, Barack, is a-okay with his daughters dating. She claims he’s “good with it.” She explains, “look, they are 24 and 21. They were in high school. They went to prom. They’ve lived life. And he’s learned how to be a concerned Black father, but not crazy.” 

She goes on to say, “they’re doing great. Proud of them. They survived eight years growing up in one of the harshest spotlights there is. And they are good, decent, normal young women who are trying to be impactful in the world, and they are the best of friends. Couldn’t ask for anything else.”
