On the Bill Simmons Podcast last December 17, former U.S. President Barack Obama opened up about the time his daughter Malia's boyfriend Rory Farquharson stayed with them for months during the quarantine.

Obama proved that he is one cool dad as he chatted about his bonding moments with Malia and her boyfriend, whom the family took in at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

FUN MOMENTS DURING QUARANTINE

Obama described Rory, who is from the U.K., as a "good kid." He said that Rory, who had a job set up in the U.S., was with them during the lockdown as he sorted out some matters with his visa.

Asked about the most fun activities he enjoyed during the quarantine, Obama said that he had fun teaching Malia and Rory to play Spades. The 59-year-old recounted:

HARVARD LOVE STORY

The 44th U.S. president also jokingly shared that their grocery bill shot up by 30 percent because of Bill's consumption. But Obama sounded like he is taking a liking to Rory, who attends Harvard with Malia.

Malia falling in love with Rory at Harvard is reminiscent of her parents' love story. Obama and Michelle both attended Harvard, from which they graduated with a law degree.

In his latest book, he shares stories from the first two and a half years of his presidency and the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

OBAMA THE AUTHOR

Before going to Harvard, Rory attended the Rugby School, a prestigious English boarding school where she won the title of Head Boy. For her part, Malia began her first year at Harvard after enjoying a gap year.

The former president has been sharing some personal details as he promotes his latest memoir, "A Promised Land," which sold nearly 890,000 copies in the U.S. and Canada within 24 hours after its release.

Both Obama and his wife are highly successful authors. Michelle's book "Becoming" was also a bestseller, selling 725,000 copies in North America during its first day of release in 2018. It has sold 10 million worldwide.

Obama has two other million-selling books under his belt - "Dreams from My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope." In his latest book, he shares stories from the first two and a half years of his presidency and the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

Meanwhile, Michelle also opened up about her family dynamic during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She said that her daughters Malia and Sasha became sick of her.

The former U.S. first lady, known for her sense of humor, said that they were all excited at first to be together at home in the early stages of the lockdown. But the excitement later wore off.
