Michelle Obama shared this photo for Father's Day

Barack and Michelle are incredibly proud of their two daughters. Earlier this month, the politician spoke candidly to Anderson Cooper, saying: "In terms of them having a good sense of what's right and wrong, and their part and role to play in making the country better, I don't worry about that."

Barack admitted that his offspring are "so much wiser, more sophisticated, and gifted than I was at their age" telling the CNN anchor: "What you and I might have tolerated as 'That's sort of how things are,' their attitude is 'Why? Let's change it.'"

And to mark Sasha's 20th birthday earlier in June, Michelle posted another beautiful throwback of her daughter sitting on her lap as a child.

"Happy birthday to my darling Sasha! I am so grateful for every laugh we've shared — and everything you've taught me over the years," the proud mum said. "You'll always be my little girl, but I couldn't be prouder of the woman you are becoming. Love you so much!"
