Malia Obama's the Same Height as Her Mom, Michelle!

But even though she’s growing like a weed, we imagine 12-year-old Malia Obama still looks up to the first lady.

The first daughter, 12-year-old Malia Obama, has had such an explosive growth spurt, she’s actually the same height (5’10″!) as her mom, Michelle, as this picture shows. The pre-teen was photographed with her parents and little sister, Sasha, over the weekend in Maine, where the first family toured the local sites, played tennis and hung by a swimming pool at the Bar Harbor Club.

As you can see, Malia is Michelle’s not-so-mini me — she even has the same hairdo, strappy flats and wears a cardigan (one of Michelle’s signature style pieces).

In a recent speech, the President talked about his daughter’s surprising stature, saying, “She may be 5’9″, but she’s still my baby.” He went on to say that she just got braces, which he especially likes because it keeps her looking “like a kid. She’s starting to look too old to me.”

Our big question is, how tall will Malia ultimately be? Will she clear six feet, like her dad? Using a calculation method from the famed Mayo Clinic, her adult height could be as much as 6’1″, which would put her eye to eye with the President — and make for some interesting showdowns with Dad on the basketball court.

Malia and I are the same age now (15) with the same birthday (July 4th, 1998) and she is sooo much more taller than I am. Now she is at about 5’11 to maybe 6′ . I ,on the other hand, am around 4’10-4’11. For us to be, what my friends call us, “Twins”, its such a big height difference. It amazes me !!!

What a beautiful little girl. I commend her parents for doing what they can to keep her out of the spotlight as much as possible. I am glad to read that she is no Amy Carter.

What a disgusting thing to say! Shame on you. She’s a kid and a lovely one in every way, by all accounts; well mannered, intelligent, respectful of others, and already quite beautiful. Where does your nasty spirit come from, I’d like to know?

My daughter was six feet tall at fourteen. She is now 15 and 6’1″. Dad is 5’6″ and i am 5’9″. I think she may be finished growing except on a day to day basis. Depending on if her heels are 2″, 3″, 4″. LOL! She is beautiful and can not date until she completes college. That’s the rule! Malia you are BEAUTIFUL (Sasha too!)

Omg Malia is growing up so fast! She’s not that much younger than me but she makes me feel old lol! But yeah with that height she would be the PERFECT model or basketball palyer or even playing volleyball because that height shouldnt go to waste but her parents are the best so they wont let it go to waste either…but they should watch out because she will be in college before they know it!!!But she is tall like me and Im 14 and 5’9 wow its amazing

Modeling requires the right body shape and size. Her mother is about a 5’3″ tall size 8 on top, but 6’3″
Amazon sized 14 on the bottom. Unfortunately, most girls inherit their mother’s shape. Hopefully, she will inherit body shape from her paternal side of the family, and modeling will be an option.
