What do America and Malia Obama have in common? Believe it or not, they share a birthday — July 4! So, what did President Barack surprise Malia with for her Sweet 16? Keep reading to find out!
On July 4, as the country observed it’s 238th Independence Day, Malia Obama, 16, celebrated a very special birthday. The teenager received an exciting surprise from her parents, President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama, for the milestone birthday. We’ll give you one guess — it has four wheels!
Malia Obama’s 16th Birthday Surprise From Barack & Michelle Obama
If Malia wants to be normal teenager like her parents claim, she sure succeeded by receiving a very typical 16th birthday gift — her first car!
Sources close to the Obama family have revealed that Malia received a car for her birthday on Friday, July 4, reports the Daily Mail. However, details of the make, model and color of Malia’s brand new ride are still unknown.
Hopefully it was something practical and, more importantly, safe!
It has been a big year for Malia — not only did she just receive her first car, but in May 2014 Barack revealed she attended her first prom. And yes, she had a date!
Malia Will Not Be Able To Drive For A Year
The bad news about Malia’s sweet new ride? She can’t drive it yet. Well, at least not while she’s alone.
Unfortunately, the birthday girl will not be able to drive alone for at least another year. Washington, D.C. requires drivers be at least 17 years old to get behind the wheel without an adult — only after they have had their provisional license for six months, according to The Daily Caller.
Do you think Michelle and Barack will let Malia drive them around the city for practice?
