Washington: It`s official: A teenager now lives at the White House.

Malia Obama, the eldest of President Barack Obama`s two daughters, turned 13 on the Fourth of July. But as usual, she`ll have to share her parents with hundreds of others on her special day.

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have invited hundreds of troops and their families from across the country to attend a special barbecue and USO concert on the South Lawn. They`ll also have one of the best views of the annual fireworks show on the National Mall.

Malia`s younger sister, Sasha, turned 10 last month.
