Barack Obama hints at older daughter Malia `dating`

Washington: Michelle Obama warned her husband to be prepared, as their daughters would be dating sooner than he thought.

When President Obama was asked last fall about the potential of his older daughter, Malia, having boyfriends, he told Entertainment Tonight, “She may not be able to date until she’s 30 or 35.”

But the First Lady knew better.

“No honey, it will be sooner than that, so brace yourself,” she said then.

So has the time finally come? Did the president, while talking about early childhood education, hint at a rally in Decatur, Georgia, that one of his girls is dating?

“I do have to warn the parents who are here, who still have young kids, they grow up to be, like five feet 10 inches. And even if they’re still nice to you, they basically don’t have a lot of time for you during the weekends,” he said.

“They have sleepovers and dates. So all that early investment just leaves them to go away,” he said.
