- Former US President Barack Obama has admitted he loves seeing Malia and Sasha living in peace
- The proud dad said his girls have finally become tight friends and do not have their usual petty squabbles
- The former first daughters have lived with their parents since March during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic
Former US President Barack Obama is a happy dad. In 2020, he got the chance to spend quality time with his wife and daughters.
The father of two told People.com he was glad that after two decades, his two girls grew closer than ever during the period they were living under one roof.
The ex-president pointed out that Malia and Sasha Obama no longer got into small, unnecessary fights like they did before and turned into tight friends.
He did not have to solve their usual squabbles and that was quite the relief.
Obama said his 22-year-old and 19-year-old had been with them since the onset of the pandemic.
They ate together, played together and spent time in the house together whenever they got the chance.
“Malia and Sasha have been with us almost continuously since March, with just a few breaks,” said the 59-year-old.
To Michelle Obama and the former president, the time with their girls was relieving and they loved getting a chance to have them to themselves yet again.
“To have this bonus time where your kids are having dinner with you every night and we are playing games and watching movies together… there has been a lot of joy to that,” he added.
Previously, Briefly.co.za shared that Michelle revealed her daughters Malia and Sasha already feel tired of having to social distance with their folks every day.
The former First Lady revealed she and Obama feel a wee bit sick of their kids as they had already gotten used to being by themselves.
“I think first our kids got a little sick of us ... which was fine because we were pretty much sick of them,” she told comedian Conan O’Brien.
At first, things in the house flowed smoothly and both mummy and daddy were happy to finally spend some much needed time with their girls.
