Michelle Obama Couldn’t Hold Tears As She Talked About Daughter Sasha's Emotional College Drop-Off

Date December 11, 2019

Sasha Obama left for college to start a new life as an adult. Both Barack and Michelle Obama’s daughters won’t be living in their family home in 2019.

It’s been quite emotional for the former presidential couple as it will be the first time in years that they won’t have their girls around. Barack and Michelle Obama’s daughters are grown-ups now but their parents still feel slightly melancholic about it.

Michelle revealed that she and her husband feel like ‘empty-nesters’ as their youngest child left them, too. Recently, the former First Lady dived deeper and opened up about her daughter’s emotional drop-off.

Michelle recalled the drop off during a candid interview with Today. She said, unable to hold back tears:

After lunch, when we said that final goodbye, when we got into a car — me and Barack and Malia, who was there with us — and then Sasha drove off on her own and said that last goodbye, that’s when we were like.

Mrs. Obama assured she is excited that her daughters are independent now but added that she can’t help but feel a little bit sad as they are no longer the little girls ‘that sit on your lap and ‘listen to you adoringly.’

She concluded with a sad note in her voice:

Those days are over.

18-year-old Sasha Obama was sent to the University of Michigan. Some students have already spotted the former President’s daughter on campus and hope she ‘finds her fit’ there. We wish her that, too!
