The White House is now ‘teen-friendly’ with Malia Obama celebrating the big 1-3 on July 4 — but that’s not the biggest news of the week! Malia has a boyfriend and she’s past the holding hands stage. The First Daughter has experienced her first kiss! Uh, oh, Mr. President!
But as frightened as you’d think President Barack Obama and wife Michelle would be, they’re the exact opposite — reportedly, they’re basking in the afterglow!
“It’s a big moment for anyone’s daughter,” a White House insider tells the National Enquirer. “It’s a sweet event in her young life. Now Barack and Michelle can’t stop smiling.”
Although Malia updates her parents on most of her first crush feelings, she initially confided in Michelle’s mom, Marian Robinson, who knows that her granddaughter snuck in a lunchtime kiss with a 13-year-old classmate at the elite Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.
“Marian knew to take Malia’s lunch-break kiss very seriously,” the source adds.
Marian even helped Malia figure out a good way to act around her new boyfriend, as to not scare him off. Malia likes this boy so much, she wanted him to join her, her sister Sasha, 10, and Michelle on their trip to California, where the First Lady raised $1 million for her husband’s re-election campaign. But Marian told her innocent grandchild, ‘don’t rush things!’
“Marian explained to Malia the graceful, young-lady way to show feelings,” another source revealed. “She advised Malia to slow down about wanting her crush to attend all their White House swimming and bowling parties. She suggested that a better idea was to ask her parents if she could invite her ‘friend’ over on her birthday, and she gently told Malia thatintroducing a young man who’s just 12 as ‘my boyfriend’ might make him feel awkward.” And Malia stuck to granny’s advice!
The First family is thrilled that Malia’s happy, adding that her first kiss proves that “family life in the White House fishbowl isn’t so bad.”
