In an interview with "Good Morning America," Michelle thanked former First Daughters Jenna and Barbara Bush, and Chelsea Clinton for the support.

She said she'd "love them forever for the kind of support they provided to [her] daughter," Sasha, 17, and Malia, 20.

She added: “They’ve managed the situation with poise and grace and they are normal and kind and smart and friendly and open. It could’ve gone so wrong.”

Twins Jenna and Barbara lived in the White House from 2001 until 2009, while Chelsea lived there during her father's presidency from 1993 until 2001.

Back in January 2017, the twins wrote an open letter to the Malia and Sasha to welcome them "to the rarified club of former first children" and guide them through life. They wrote:

“You have listened to harsh criticism of your parents by people who had never even met them. You stood by as your precious parents were reduced to headlines. Your parents, who put you first and who not only showed you but gave you the world. As always, they will be rooting for you as you begin your next chapter. And so will we.”

When tabloids tried to find dirt on Malia, Chelsea came to her defense on Twitter, telling the media to leave Malia be. She said:

"Malia Obama's private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better."

It is thanks to their guidance, as well as Chelsea's, that has Michelle saying her daughters are thriving today.

Michelle made headlines recently when she took a jab at the current president and said that at this point in the race "everybody is qualified" to run for president.

On a serious note, Michelle said anyone who "feels the passion to get in this race" and who has the courage should step up because "we need them in there."
