Barack opened up about his family life during a rare interview on Today on Wednesday, as he chatted to Al Roker.

He gave an insight into what it was like to see his children go away to college, telling Al, whose son Nick is preparing to do the same: "Well, first tip is – you are going to weep copiously when you drop Nick off at college.
