How fitting — a First Daughter’s birthday on one of the most patriotic holidays of the year! Malia Obama turns 16 years old today. To celebrate Malia’s special day, we’re taking a look back at her life!
It is Malia Obama‘s sweet 16 today! The famous daughter, who was born on July 4, 1998, has been in the national spotlight for about six years now while her father, Barack Obama, has risen up the political ranks to President. We hope the fashionista and student is celebrating her sweet 16 in style!
Malia Obama: Daughter Of President Obama Turns 16 Years Old
Malia is 16 years old today — how exciting! The world fell in love with Malia during the 2008 National Democratic Convention. Malia, who was 10 at the time, yelled out, “I love you, Daddy,” while her dad appeared on the big screens at the convention — and the whole world said, “Aww!” It was SUCH a sweet moment!
Flash forward six years and Malia is growing up! Malia has had “her first prom,” her dad revealed on May 30. We’re sure the stylish teen wore something gorgeous.
And while Malia lives in the White House, she’s like any other teen in that her President dad and mom, Michelle Obama, totally embarrass her sometimes! “Barack and I are like any parents, we love to embarrass [our kids],” Michelle spilled recently.
Malia should be SO proud of herself on this special day. She’s a great student, a wonderful daughter and an amazing big sister to Sasha. I mean, who could forget the time Sasha snapped a pic of Malia photo bombing her famous parents smooching? It’s a classic.
Happy sweet 16, Malia! We hope you have a super fun and amazing day ringing in another year of your teens. And we can’t WAIT to see if you get your drivers license soon!
