You may think you know the First Lady, but you have no idea.
Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama is more than just the wife of President Barack Obama, 51 and the mother of two adorable daughters Sasha, 11 and Malia, 14. The 48-year-old political heavyweight also has a thing for Tracy Reese dresses and, according to a exclusive interview with Us Weekly, loves kissing in public and will travel far distances to chow down on a fried Twinkie. As if she couldn’t get any better, the president recently compared his wife to pop diva Beyonce.
“Jay knows what my life is like,” Barack said at a fundraiser held by Beyonce and Jay-Z . “We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard but it’s okay.”
Here are five things you didn’t know about Michelle Obama… that is until now.
One. “I think one of the most important things anyone can do is vote. Gottavote.com makes it easy to do.”
Two. “Sometimes I let our Portuguese Water Dog, Bo, sleep in our bed when Barack is gone.”
Three. “I skipped the second grade.”
Four. “The best thing about campaigning is meeting amazing and inspiring people. Another perk is getting to try specialties from around the country along the way. I’ve tried everything from local farmers’ market produce in North Carolina to fried Twinkies in Iowa.”
Five. “We love watching sports — especially when there’s a Kiss-Cam involved!”
