Barack Obama’s youngest daughter Sasha looked classy her in a simple yet elegant black dress as she attended her Prom on 23rd May. Standing arm-in-arm with her boyfriend clad in a tux, the former first daughter looked all grown up.
Sasha flaunted the classic black dress with such grace that even the fanciest see-through dresses would appear bland. She looked flawless as she posed for photos before heading out to the event in Washington. Her date, Chris Milton, looked equally amazing in a black tuxedo as the couple beamed at the camera.
Barack, who has a well-documented history of making tongue-in-cheek threats towards his daughter’s prospective partners, was nowhere to be seen while Michelle and older sister Malia glowed with pride as they posed for the cameras.
Back in 2016, the former President of the United States had jokingly reminded the boys seeking to date his daughters that his daughters have trained killers near them at all times and that there is “only so much they can do.”
Sasha was only seven years old when her father took the office in the White House but she and her sister have grown up to be graceful young women throughout the years.
In a podcast with Conan O'Brien, Michelle previously shared intimate details about how she raised her daughters amid stressful conditions at the White House.
“We had to parent by creating this cocoon of normalcy in a pretty crazy, abnormal world."
She revealed how her daughters were worried that their friends would not even come over at the White House for sleepovers since their father was a President. Being an understanding mother, Michelle hosted several sleepovers at the Presidential residence accompanied by their secret service bodyguards.
Michelle further shared how the then first daughters Jenna and Barbara Bush reached out to her daughters when Obama took office to offer their support. The twins gave them some invaluable advice on coping with the challenges of being the President’s daughter in an open letter.
“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,” the letter read. 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.”
The former first lady’s efforts to raise her children in a normal way is commendable.
