Michelle Obama, during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, revealed that she doesn't follow her two daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama on social media.


Michelle told Oprah during the interview at the Barclays Center in New York City on Tuesday, that she is keen on delivering an uninvolved approach at parenting her adult-aged daughters as much as she can.

The former First Lady stressed that she must let her daughters, Malia and Sasha, discover their bearing. She mentioned that as young adults, they should make their decisions.

Malia, 21 and Sasha, 18, are presently furthering their education in respective colleges; with Malia currently attending Harvard University and Sasha, enrolled at the University of Michigan.

Instead of keeping tabs on her daughters' every move, Michelle counts on her younger family friends to keep up with her daughters while they are in school:

"It's better for them to be checked by somebody younger than me."


In a recent Today interview with Jenna Bush Hager, Michelle opened up about seeing Sasha, 18, leave the nest, and revealed that it was just as emotional for her as it is for any mother.

Bush Hager broached the topic, asking if there were any tears when Michelle said goodbye to Sasha. "There were," she replied, adding that the family tried their best to keep their emotions in check. The mom-of-two continued,

"We didn't want to embarrass her because she had roommates, and it was at the end, after lunch, when we said that final goodbye."


The "Becoming" author is officially an empty nester. While the initial transition was filled with tears, both Michelle and Barack Obama, have no complaints about their quieter lives now that they have had a few months to settle into this new stage.

Michelle Obama said she's begun to enjoy it. "It is so good, y'all," she said during her interview with Winfrey. "No, it is really good," she added.


Malia Obama and her millionaire boyfriend, Rory Farquharson, were recently spotted having a cigarette break in between classes, just weeks after the pair returned from an enjoyable Christmas in the U.K.

The former President's oldest daughter and her beau had been taking a rapid lunch at a sandwich shop in Cambridge, Massachusetts when they decided to step outdoors to smoke.

Now that the children are in school, Michelle said that she and her husband, Barack Obama were "finally seeing each other again."
